New in RE

  • RE lessons are taught on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month.  Anyone interested in instructing a session or more, please see Carla Thompson.

CUP Update

CUP volunteers John and Marilyn Bell, Anne Edwards, and Holly Norton as well as Louise Daniels attended the annual Harvest Dinner hosted by the Bluffton University Nutrition Association to raise money for area food pantries, including CUP, which received $900 in proceeds from the event. 

The dinner was held in the Bluffton Middle School cafeteria and featured chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, rolls, and several desserts, all prepared from scratch by Nutrition & Dietetics students. Many of the ingredients were sourced locally through donations from area farms and businesses. Service was provided by students in the SERVE organization, and entertainment was provided by music majors.

All Lima UUs who attended were impressed by the quality of the food and service, not to mention the money that was raised to provide food for the less fortunate.
