Great news! We surpassed our goal for our special Stewardship Campaign! As of today, we have received fifty-five new or revised pledges totaling $88,546! I cannot express how grateful I am to all of you who responded so positively and generously to this campaign! Once again, members of UBC have shown that we can rise up to meet a challenge! Our Finance Committee will begin to work on a new, revised budget, and we will schedule a budget discussion meeting sometime in late April.
I am so thankful to God for the positive and encouraging signs that are springing up everywhere at UBC: new babies dedicated, new believers baptized, new members joining, and new financial supporters of our ministries.
This week, Jubilate, our collegiate choir, is on tour singing in Florida, North Carolina and Virginia. This weekend, nineteen of our youth will be joining youth from all over the state to participate in “Mission Madness” in Blacksburg, VA. Pray for both groups as they share the love of Christ through song and hands-on service.
This Sunday Erin Brown will give a report on the progress our Faith and Justice Committee is making through IMPACT in addressing youth unemployment, homelessness and mental health in our community. Those interested in getting involved are invited to an IMPACT Network meeting after worship.
Great news all around! Thanks be to God!
