Your Last Chance to be Heard
The last Congregational Conversation about a revised UUCOV Mission will be held Friday, February 2nd at 10am in the Sanctuary. We will review the work completed in the previous three conversations and come to a consensus on the wording for a proposed mission statement to be presented to all members and to be voted on at the Annual Meeting scheduled for March 24th.
Visit the UUCOV Library!
Looking for a thought-provoking book or video? Visit UUCOV’s library in Waters Hall! You’ll find books in a variety of categories, including LGBTQ, Meditation, Mythology, Parenting, Social Justice, Spiritual Traditions and Wellness. There is no sign-out required. Simply borrow the materials that interest you and return them on the honor system. Waters Hall is typically open Monday – Friday from 10 a.m. to noon, but you can also contact one of the “Library Ladies” (Ruth Boysworth, Suzy Choate, Janet Knudsen and Janet Lemoine) if you’d like to arrange access at another time.
I LOVE UUCOV!
The 2018/19 Stewardship Campaign will be kicked off by a raucous musical event to celebrate our thankfulness for our UUCOV family. The event will be held February 10th with the bar open at 5:30pm and the music beginning at 6pm. Come with joy in your hearts and bring your musical instruments- tambourines, maracas, drums, bells, etc as we will make beautiful music together. The musical theme is appropriate as we work to support our musical program expansion with our generosity. If you can, please bring an appetizer or dessert to share.

To Sandy McHenry (of Venice United Church of Christ) A huge “Thank You” for coordinating two weeks of hosting Family Promise during the winter holidays. Paul and Cindy O’Dell
To Ray Goins A BIG Tip of the Hat to Ray. On the night of the VICA event held in the sanctuary we had a full house and Rev. Walker announced that his choir was unable to come. Ray stepped up to the piano and led us in several songs that saved the night. Ray is our hero !!! And it was an excellent night with Rev. Walker, as usual. Linda Underwood
