Start-Up Workshops for Professional Ministry
Sunday Oct 29, 1 PM
facilitated by the Rev. Sarah Schurr, from the Congregational Life staff for the Pacific Western Region of the UUA.
Start-Up Workshops for full-time called ministries have long been part of our best practices in the Pacific Western Region. We know that there is nothing like a good beginning to help things go right during a ministry. This is work that will help us begin a healthy new chapter with our new minister by beginning to address the following:
· examining the myths and values at work in the congregation
· recognizing the stories that are still influencing the congregation,
· clarifying roles and expectations, and
· setting some initial goals.
We will have an open gathering (anyone interested) after the second service on Sunday, Oct 29. After a break, we will continue with a meeting for the Board and Committee Chairs.

Festival of Lights Parade
The Membership Committee will host the annual entry in the Auburn Festival of Lights Parade on Saturday, December 2. The parade starts at 5:30pm in downtown Auburn and ends at the Fairgrounds. This is the largest and best parade in Auburn. This year, we are hoping the participants from SFUU will be able to wear clothing that has the SFUU name/logo on it so that everyone watching will know who we are.
We will needs folks to help set up the entry before the parade as well as folks to walk in the parade. Visitors, friends and members of SFUU are welcome to participate.
Details will follow as we get closer to the date. Contact Marsha von Dessonneck at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
