UUCJ will be launching a new weekly Vespers service on Saturday, February 18 at 7 pm. Vespers is a service of evening prayer in the Christian tradition. Our Vespers services will be held regularly every Saturday evening. They will offer a sacred time of song, meditation, prayer, reflection, and contemplation. All are welcome.
Friends and members of UUCJ have donated money to the Foundation for the purpose of providing ongoing financial gifts to the church. The year-end balance in the Fund for 2016 is $464,826. The 4% distribution amount for 2017 is $18,593. Due to generous gifts in 2016 which paid off the outstanding loan to the church, the entire amount will be applied to 2017 church operations. In the past, a portion of the annual amount was applied to loan repayment and interest. A gift to the Foundation is a gift that keeps on giving. Foundation Board members are Mary Carter, Lynn Shad, Barbara Robinson, Melody Shacter, and Bret Hinman.
Members of UUCJ are invited to march or ride with members of BBUUC in this year’s Martin Luther King Parade on Monday, January 16. Park near the Prime Osborne Convention Center and take the free shuttle bus to the beginning of the parade in Lot J at Everbank Field by 10AM.
