In these challenging times UUCJ has done a great job keeping our church community connected. However, we are facing a serious budget challenge because our pledges are $20,000 less than the budget approved by the Congregation in December. The Board recognized this problem and held a virtual Budget Summit on Saturday, April 4. Many of you participated and heard the budget options presented by the Finance Committee. A poll taken during the meeting asked whether members would be willing to increase their pledge; many said they would. You may increase your pledge by calling the church office at (904) 725-8133 and leaving a message for Virginia or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the meeting, a member suggested that all of us consider donating part or all of up to $1200 in government rescue funds that we may receive. For a one-time gift:
- send a check to UUCJ (7405 Arlington Expressway 32211),
- donate online (via PayPal) by visiting https://uucj.org/give/ (designation “Sunday Collection”),
- or call Virginia to make a credit card payment over the phone.
