CUF’s Path Ahead

CUF’s Path Ahead
 Coming UpFamilies with children will receive RE information for a regular 11:15 am in-person program throughout the month of September. Trustees and Deacons will meet Sunday, September 12 at 1:00 pm to decide fall plans for public CUF worship. 
“All Together!” Special Summer Campaign: Our fund-raising campaign had two parts. One in-person, for children in attendance to have space in the nursery and Sunday School. The other on-line, for part of our congregation to always be able to Zoom in from home. Worship includes all of us in all these spaces. This vision of togetherness was extra-successful! 
Covid19 and Public Health
Masking indoors is the new norm in Maine as elsewhere, in an effort to lower the Delta spike as fast as it has risen. Stay tuned to CDC guidelines. Philippians 2:4: “Let each of you look not only to your own interest, but also to the interests of others.”

Seal the deal rally

More than 50 people, including Pastor Mariah, participated in a
“Seal the Deal” rally last Thursday in Brunswick. Mainers called on federal lawmakers to support the budget bill moving through Congress, arguing that the legislation represents a historic opportunity to make much-needed investments in climate, care and immigration reform.
