Visitor and Member Monthly Cookouts
Who doesn’t like a cookout?! This summer, join UUMC visitors and members for a once-a-month cookout and fellowship after a shortened service (June 9th will be the first, for Pastor Williams’s goodbye cookout, but other dates to come). We hope you’ll bring your favorite dish to share, but the dish-less are just as welcome to attend! If you have them, bring a lawn game set with you. Some lawn games will be provided, but the more the merrier! Bring your kids, bring a friend! We hope to see you there.
Goodbye Cookout for Pastor Williams
June 9th will be Perry’s last week with us at UUMC. Let’s thank him for his service and leadership as he embarks on a new journey in Oklahoma. We’ll have a cookout on June 9th following the 10:00am service. Please bring your favorite dish to share, but plan to attend even without a contribution.
Pastoral Care for UUMC – June 13th through June 30th
Perry’s last Sunday will be June 9th. Pastoral care will be available from Rev. Joye Jones, pastor of Good Shepherd UMC or Rev. Fay Lundin pastor at College Park UMC, during the weeks of June 13th through June 30th.
Running to Help Find a Cure for Blood Cancers
As one of my favorite Old Testament verses, Isaiah 40:31 reminds me: “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” On May 28th, I will be running my hometown Buffalo Marathon—26.2 miles—to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team In Training program. I have committed not only to running the distance, but also reaching my personal fundraising goal of $5000 to help finance research on a cure and to provide assistance to those battling blood cancers. A number of church members donated when I fundraised in 2008 and last spring for which I am deeply grateful. If you are interested in sponsoring me, please write a check made payable to the “Leukemia and Lymphoma Society” and hand it to me in church some Sunday. If you prefer, you can also make a secure, on-line donation at http://pages.teamintraining.org/wcny/buffmar13/clasher. Thank you in advance for your support—both moral and financial. Craig Lasher
