Women over 50 is now WOMEN OF ALL AGES

UUCJ Work Day: Saturday 9/16 @9am

There is a good degree of clean-up required at the church after Irma hit this last weekend. Please join us Saturday, 9/16/2017 @ 9am to help with the clean-up. There is a lot of yard/tree debris so bring lots of heavy work-gloves, saws (if you have them), rakes, shovels, trucks for hauling (if you have one), rubber boots might be a good idea as well. Some inside work will be required as well. Please come and help make the church building & grounds beautiful again and ready for this Sunday’s service!  There will also be a work party after service on Sunday, to help with whatever doesn’t get finished on Saturday.

September’s Generosity in Action

Karen Kempf

Karen with her dog, Bingo.

This month’s Generosity in Action honoree is Karen Kempf: She has served on and chaired the Stewardship Campaign (now called the Mission Funding Effort). She is on the Membership Committee, and attended Fernandina’s Membership Sunday to support their recent growth. She is chair of the Leadership Development Council (she has served the LDC since its formation), and has been proactive in attending board meetings as the LDC’s spokesperson. In short, Karen has consistently shown her dedication to UUCJ growth and development. Next time you see her, be sure to thank her for her devotion to our beloved community!
