Sunday, April 23, 2017
Speaker: Dean Waskowiak
Dean Waskowiak, a Longview resident and business owner, will speak about his experience in Lebanon helping Syrian refugees aided by the World Vision International organization. Justice Sunday is an effort of the UUSC to help UUs learn about and take action on a particular human rights issue. The theme for 2017 is Supporting Communities Under Siege: from Burma, to Syria, to Guatemala, to the U.S., those communities under attack because of their race, religion, immigrant or refugee status, or sexual orientation.
*Back Pack Program
The UUFL Board is once again asking members to contribute what and when they can to Back Pack Program through the end of 2017, including the summer months. Please make your checks to UUFL with Backpack on the memo line or put your cash in a labeled envelope. Our treasurer will provide a monthly check to J. L. Everhart Elementary, the one nearest to us, in the Longview ISD. This program provides non-perishables for children at the poverty level so that they have food to eat over the weekend.
*March for Babies
If you wish to contribute to this effort, please writeMarch for Babies on the Memo Line of your check, or place the money in an envelope marked for this purpose. The campaign ends this Sunday on April 23.
Have an idea for a Sunday service? Willing to present one yourself? Contact Carol West by email, or write your idea(s) in the binder provided in the lobby.
Bring a can of beams or can of chili or tuna, a jar of peanut butter, a bag of rice (any non-perishables) to put in the food basket in the lobby. Barbara will take our collection to Longview Community Ministries to help feed the poor and hungry of our community.
Asbury House is collecting glue and glue sticks this month. Asbury House is a child development center that provides quality childcare for children of parents that are going back to school but are below the poverty line. The mission is to try to break the cycle of poverty by giving children a quality start to their education.
