Transparent budget meeting this Sunday after church

A Message from the CUF Trustees
Dear CUF Community,First, the good news: our church is growing, as reflected in a record number of new pledges this year!
As Trustees we love CUF dearly, and know that you do, too.Next, a challenging truth: due to rising utilities, inflation, and an uninspiring stock market, CUF also has a record budget gap of $35,712 to close as we move ahead into 2023.The Trustees have worked hard to reduce this gap, but we need your help to balance the budget.
Can you increase your 2023 pledge amount, or make an additional one-time donation to support CUF?
Please save the date and join us for a transparent budget meeting following the service THIS Sunday, January 15th.There will be options for in-person or Zoom participation (using the same Zoom link you use to attend the service).
We look forward to discussing your questions and ideas for how best to address this challenge together!
With gratitude,
Irene von Hoffmann, Chair
The CUF Board of Trustees
