Stewardship and Payments
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and give thanks continuously.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson, Poet & Unitarian
Stewardship and fundraising undergirds everything that a faith community does and calls us into deeper connection with each other. We operate under congregational polity which means we own and maintain our own buildings, call or hire our ministers and staff, and pay all of our own bills.
One aspect of membership at UUCM is a commitment to contributing time, talent, and treasury as good stewards of our congregation.

OH LA LA CONSIGNMENT BOUTIQUE
U.U. Friends: As you may know, a while back we started an account down at the local consignment boutique. A few of you have generously donated and so far we’ve made about $100! But we really need more participation so we are asking you to go through your closets and donate any light fall items that you may want to part with. Cardigans, light jackets, vests, ponchos, long sleeve shirts, jeans, neutral colored pants, dresses (not formal, however) and of course purses, shoes, scarves and jewelry!! This is an easy way to make money for our church while keeping your closets nice and orderly. Feel free to drop them off at the church or directly at the boutique (located in downtown mall next to Big Lots). Just ask for the UU / Peggy Bell account. And thank you all so much for helping us to make a little extra money!
