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.
