Speaking Our Covenant Together:
Love is the doctrine of this Congregation.
The quest of truth its sacrament, and service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace,
to seek knowledge in freedom,
to serve the world in fellowship,
to the end that all souls shall grow
in harmony with the divine,
thus do we covenant with each other.

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.
