Stewardship Season

This Sunday, October 17,
we kick off Stewardship Season 

– where we ask everyone to pledge to cover CUF’s  2022 operating budget.  This year’s theme is All Together Onward.
We have chosen to use the same approach as last year by sending out pledge cards by mail and having an 
Online Pledge Card option.

Pledges may be made by: Check mailed to the church office at 82 Main Street, Orono;
PayPal – use the drop-down menu – choose 2022 Pledge;
Other means such as stock transfers –
contact Steffi at the church office.

We will have a celebration of the successful campaign on
Super Sunday, November 14th  
The form of this celebration is yet to be decided — 
but it will involve food!

This Sunday October 17th

Bob Gallant Celebration of Life

A celebration of Bob’s life will be held
Saturday, October 9th at 12:30 pm
at Old Town City Park

Steffi says in the WIND: Many of us are still in shock
after Bob Gallant passed away October 1st, from
injuries he sustained in a car accident a few days
earlier. The hole in our heart is big and can’t be easily
filled. So much reminds us of the sweet man with the
big grin and the twinkle in his eyes. He was a regular
in the “halls” of CUF. So many small jobs he did
without making much ado…
I can’t even go out to the mailbox at CUF without
shedding a little tear. Last fall Bob moved the mailbox
from the CUF porch to its current home outside the
front door. Some days, when the office phone rings, I
expect to hear Bob’s voice–asking if there is enough
gray paint in the basement so he can paint the new
nursery window frame…
Bob and Ginny’s grieving granddaughter, Nicole,
created a Facebook page called “Be like Bob”. What
a great thought. The world would be a much better
place if everyone was a little bit more like Bob.
Rest in peace Bob! But I am sure there are things to
fix and paint where you dwell now.
