On Sunday, August 20, after service is over until 1:30 pm or so, please Show UP to help Spiff Up, Clean Up, remove dust bunnies and cobwebs, vacuum behind furniture, around room edges and in corners, wash windows inside and out, clean walls of scuff marks and handprints.
If you have favorite cleaning tools and devices (e.g. a vacuum cleaner with an extension hose or a long-handled duster) please bring them. We’ll have a few dusters, some cleaning towels, window cleaning spray, and some gentle wall cleaning items. There will be a long extension pole and squeegee to wash the tall windows. And we’ll have some snacks to enjoy afterwards.
The start of a new year is also the time to try new things! Over the month of September, I will be holding a series of four sessions on how we plan and do worship a the Unitarian Church. Many of the worship associates will be a part of it, but it is also an opportunity to come see what goes one behind the scenes every week to prepare what the congregation sees on Sunday morning. If you’ve ever wondered about getting involved, or have an idea for a service you would like to lead, but do not want to commit to joining a new committee right now, this is a great opportunity to get a taste of worship planning.
Currently, the plan is to meet on four consecutive Tuesday nights:
September 5, 6:00-8:00 PM
Worship Planning 101: From blank page to service blurb.
September 12, 5:30-6:30 PM (to accommodate the Board Meeting)
Cultivating Worship: Structuring a worship service around a theme.
September 19, 6:00-8:00 PM
Putting It All Together: Writing an Order of Service, and working with music, religious education, and Audio Visual.
September 26, 6:00-8:00 PM
Practice: Trying out what we have been talking about for a month.
I hope to see you there!

This is a good time to start. We have a new PC computer. We are now hard-wired, which means that the internet is more stable. We always have two people. Bob Fuson is present to help with troubleshooting issues. Individual training is available. This is a fun and challenging way to support worship.
Please contact Linda R. Brown, firstname.lastname@example.org , if you would like to serve on the Audio-Visual Support Crew.
