We Put Love at the Very Center of Our Life Together

Articulating Our Faith and Accepting One Another

June 4 @ 10:30 am-11:30 am

Religious Exploration Youth presenting

Our youth are thinking a lot about the world they live in and their place in it.  Today we will ask the congregation questions about what they believe as Unitarian Universalists and how their time in church impacts them day to day.  We will also be sharing some of the children’s ideas about acceptance and love with everyone.

Cash in the Plate for June

The Cash in the Plate for the month of June is donated to the NAACP Brockton Branch, one of our main partners.  Their mission is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial discrimination.        

A Note from the Minister

As I write this, the month of May is coming to a close and June is just a few days away.  Our June worship services promise to be celebratory as we recognize the work of our Religious Exploration program, Pride Sunday, and, of course, Celebration Sunday itself, before we move towards closing the books on the 2022-23 church year and the beginning of a well-planned series of summer services. It’s been quite a year!  Remarkable, first of all, for a return to “in person” services for the first time in 2½ years.  I can still vividly recall the sense of excitement as

Summer Music Musings

Many kudos to the many singers and instrumentalists who came together to present Requiem by John Rutter on Music Sunday, May 21st. This was our first in-person Music Sunday since spring 2019 – that’s four years ago! Our 2019 program was ambitious, but this year’s surpassed it! It was hard, rewarding work—and for me, pure pleasure bringing a masterwork to life for a worship experience. It’s hard to believe we’re wrapping up the church year this month. The Song Circle gathers on Friday, June 9, and the final meeting for the Music Committee, led by our new chairperson, Bet Giddings,

Religious Exploration in June

RE ChildrenWe will wrap up our lessons and our Explore Beyond Our Walls in Ancient Greece and India with our last stories, The Brave Little Parrot and A Bundle of Sticks.  We will be talking about courage, perseverance and cooperation.   Youth GroupOur last meeting will be on June 11 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall.  We will plan for a summer cookout together and will plan for Pridefest.  There will be some crafting during this evening for those who are interested in keeping their hands busy while we talk.  There will also be pizza and ice cream.

Help Our Veterans

In honor of Memorial Day, we are collecting new (or like-new) rolling luggage and new, unopened toiletries and other personal care items for Veterans and homeless folks in our area. Let’s help Middleboro Elks Lodge #1274 support the Brockton VA to provide these much-needed items.  No one should ever have to carry their belongings in a black, plastic trash bag.  See the attached flyer for list of items. Contact Sandy Smiley at 508-947-1809 or ssmiley3@verizon.net if you have questions.  

Fundraiser Updates

Thank you to everyone who participated in and supported our Yard Sale and Spring Auction.  The total take for the Yard Sale was $880 and the Spring Auction was $5682!  A great big thanks to Tony Soares, Stephen Larrett, Andrea Priest, and others who helped organize, set up & break down, contributed items, purchased items.  We do amazing things together, and so many hands helped contribute to our success!

Pledge Drive

Our pledge drive ended last week. We are $13,000 short of our goal. On hearing this, one family decided to increase their pledge by $1,000. They suggested that others might like to increase their pledges as well. This would be very helpful as we are trying to keep our salaries in the UUA’s  fair compensation recommendations as we begin the search for our new settled minister.  In addition, Rev. Peter has been researching ways to grow our congregation.  He recommends we hire a social media helper.
