UUBridge has begun monthly Share the Plate offerings in an effort to
provide hurricane relief for the folks in Puerto Rico.
The funds will be donated through the UUA Disaster Relief Fund.
Please be mindful as you make your offering this Sunday.
Friday, November 17 at 6:00 pm. UUBRidge members and friends are invited to the home of Karen and Jay Allen in Flint Hill for a potluck dinner and screening of The Adventures of Priscilla; Queen of the Desert at 7:00 pm. After the film, we’ll have conversation with dessert. The Welcoming Congregation Committee is sponsoring this evening. Please RSVP to Kathryn Treanor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sign up to receive Board meeting minutes. During each monthly meeting of the UUBRidge Board of Directors, the Board approves the minutes of the previous meeting. If you would like to receive an email copy of the approved minutes, please sign up to do so on the sign-up sheet near the coffee mugs.
UUBRidge members and friends: Our new website, which can be found at UUBridge.info, will feature a faith-in-action page, where we can showcase all the things UUs do when we aren’t in church on Sunday: volunteering at the food pantry, stream clean-up, supporting Band Boosters, tutoring and mentoring local youth, gleaning for the food bank, working for social justice. Please send Dabney Kirchman pictures of all the awesome things you do in the community! email@example.com.
Rapp At Home is an emerging neighbor-to-neighbor support organization created to help us stay connected in our community as we age. For more information, contact Emery Lazar at (540) 937-1789 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Information can also be found on the Welcome table on Sundays during service.

On behalf of the entire congregation, I bid you welcome to the Unitarian Universalists of the Blue Ridge.
We gather with our doubts as well as our convictions, with our fears and our hopes, with our failures and our aspirations, with our sorrows and our joys.
Whether you are joining us today for the first time, or you’ve been with us since this congregation’s beginnings in 2008, you are welcome here.
Whatever the faiths you have now – if any – or whatever your heritage, you are welcome here.
Whoever you are and whomever you love, you are welcome here.
However you arrived at this beloved place, you are welcome here.
