Fellowship Time & Annual Meeting at Noon

Here are some notes that will help to
enhance our worship experience
for all who are gathered together
both online and in-person: 


* All who plan to attend in-person in the Sanctuary must be fully vaccinated and willing to wear a ppe mask. 

* RE youth and adult attendees have received information from our DLRE Robert regarding their entry through the gate in the parking lot and their masking protocols. Because the children are unable to be vaccinated, we will miss having them with us in the Sanctuary for now.

* Our time of Offering will not include a passing of the basket, but we will provide those in the sanctuary with the opportunity to bring your gifts forward to place them on a special altar/table we will have set up. We will gather both financial gifts of support for MVUUC and also any non-perishable food items you wish to donate to the Beta Center.

* We will be honored to receive your Pledge Cards for our 2021-2022 Stewardship Drive on the offering table or in the drop box outside the Admin Office. 

* Coffee and tea will be available after the service. We will not be sharing food at this early stage of our re-opening.

our Greeters and Hospitality Team!


Next Week’s Service

The Effect of Black Lives Matter on the Palestinian Struggle for Freedom & Equality

Guest Speaker: Shawki El-Zatmah
Lay Leader: Catherine Rowlee
Pianist: Lily Popova

 
The impact of the African American struggle for civil rights has had a direct effect on the Palestinian struggle. The emergence of Black Lives Matter specifically and the death of George Floyd, have re-energized international attention on the conflict. The American movements of the last year have had a direct impact on how the Palestinian's view their own struggle as part of the larger global struggle against racism, sexism, and injustice in general.
 
Supporting Our MVUUC Community 
 
Maintaining our spiritual and emotional connections at MVUUC is more important than ever. For those of you who have financial resources to share, our Congregation is grateful as you continue to make your generous donations to MVUUC. We are here for you all during these uncertain and disruptive times. Our Minister, Staff, and programs will continue to provide nurture and grounding for you. Thank you so much for supporting our life together and helping us to pay our monthly bills (such as utilities.) Please be aware that when donations are made by credit card or PayPal, a 2.9% processing fee is subtracted from the amount received by MVUUC.
