A brand new Kyocera copier has been delivered and installed in the office.  Your old copier codes still work.  Stop by the office to see how easy this machine is to operate.

I-1631 signature totals – You are helping create a just transition to a clean economy

You have helped us exceed our goal. 89 EUUC folk turned in 1345 signatures, and EUUC climate stewards gathered over 1200 more in community events, for a total that will end up well over 2500. EUUC has contributed a quarter of the Snohomish County goal. Statewide numbers are on target to qualify this initiative for the fall ballot. Whether you turned in a couple, or many, Thank you for acting on the moral imperative of our Congregational Stand on Global Warming.

Call for Capital Needs Proposals

In accordance with the board’s recently approved Capital Needs Policy (#00090), the Finance Committee is calling for proposals for Capital Needs funding. “Capital Needs” are funds for major maintenance, furniture or equipment purchases, and general repairs that were not otherwise anticipated in the annual budgeting process. Calling for proposals, reviewing them and making a recommendation to the board is a new process that the Finance Committee will conduct twice a year. If you have thoughts on areas or items that need sprucing up, repair or replacement, please submit a proposal to the Finance Committee by Friday, June 26, 2018 that includes the following information:

EUUC’s new website

EUUC has moved to a new website.  It will be reached at the same web address- euuc.org. It is based on a website template produced by the Unitarian Universalist Association, which is used by many other Unitarian Universalist congregations. It can be viewed easily on many different devices – tablets, smart phones, laptops, desktop computers. We wish to thank our retiring webmaster, Nancy Samuels, who has spent the past 12 years creating and maintaining our content-rich website. We owe Nancy a huge debt of gratitude for her dedication and countless hours maintaining the EUUC presence on the web, and setting up a technical infrastructure that supports many operations of our congregation.

Sunday Offering for June

Mujeres de Maiz Foundation is Sunday Offering’s cause for June. Founder, Judith Pasco, spoke to us on June 3 during, bringing us up to date on scholarships she will be awarding to indigenous women and children to continue their education. Judith will be going to Chiapas, Mexico, this summer as she does every year, to award these scholarships and catch up on students’ progress and the impact this effort has had on several communities. Sunday Offering has given support to Mujeres on a regular basis because Judith is a UU who has brought education opportunities to many with very little in the way of resources.
