The Stewardship Committee is planning our 2017/18 Annual Appeal for this spring. We are looking for stewards who meet briefly with members about their annual pledges. This is an opportunity to get to know new people, share your passion and commitment for Unitarian Universalist Society: East, and help make our Annual Appeal a success. The time commitment is relatively short, with one training session and a few weeks to steward a pledging potluck and/or visit with a maximum of four members or friends. The stewardship conversations are a time of fellowship and sharing our dreams and aspirations. Talking about financial commitment is a small part of a much larger conversation about generosity and community. So please consider volunteering to be a steward this year.
We will provide training on Saturday morning, March 4, 2017 from 9:30 – 11:30 AM (light refreshments) and Tuesday evening, March 7, 2017 from 6 – 8 PM
(pizza & salad provided).
Our Annual Appeal will occur during March 5 – April 9, 2017.
Pledging Potlucks during two weekends:
March 10 – 12 and March 17 – 19
Sign up in the lobby on Sunday mornings.
What is Stewardship?
We think it is taking care of things that matter: the earth, our families and friends, the marginalized and historically oppressed. Closer to home, it means taking care of our spiritual home, Unitarian Universalist Society: East.
This is where we make the connections that matter. We are mindful of the many generous gifts of time, talent and treasure that support and sustain our mission. We come together to celebrate and to do the important work that makes the world a better place. We come to rejuvenate our senses, to create a holy space, and to strengthen our resolve.
Each March we conduct our Annual Appeal that raises funds for the continued operation of our Meetinghouse and its many programs. We also encourage newcomers, members and friends, to make pledges throughout the year. We hope you will join us in this spirit of generosity
