Summer Special Giving Campaign Reminder

Thank you to those who already donated!!Instead of the typical “brick and mortar” fundraising campaign that we usually have in the spring and summer, this year, we are having a Summer Special Giving campaign. In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking those who are able to either make a one-time financial gift or to share their stimulus money with CUF. If you are able to financially give more as a one-time gift or by sharing your stimulus money, we would welcome your gifts however you choose to give them – mailed or online (please specify “Capital Fundraising” in dropdown menu).

CUF office closed in August

Steffi is on a well-deserved vacation. We will welcome her back in September! Other leaders are helping to ensure that weekly communications and essential functions continue throughout the month. If you need to contact CUF please go to the Contact Page on the CUF website.

Wondering about Fall? So are we all!

Trustees and Deacons meet again Sunday, August 23, 11:30 am on Zoom following worship. 
This meeting will clarify church plans for the next season, consistent with Maine public health strategy. Continued participation and energy have been very good for CUF over the summer. Wisdom may lead us to continue dispersed worship, experiment with combining in-person and online gathering, or something new for all ages. Your input and ideas can be directed ahead of time to Ed Brazee, chair of Deacons, or Rachel Dobbs, president of Trustees, or to the ministers. Thank you for your part in care, action, prayer, study, generosity, welcome, and volunteer effort for this community. Ed Brazee          phone: 576-8401    email: edbrazee@gmail.comRachel Dobbs    phone: 659-0970    email: crookery@hotmail.com
