This Week at UBC

Updated every Monday

Hello Friends: 


Happy August!  Since we went inside yesterday for church in response to the smoke threat, it was a beautiful morning. Go figure. The smoke is supposed to return today, so continue to be careful out there. We have two more outdoor services until we move indoors permanently on August 22nd.  Of course, we have learned that this past year that words like ‘permanent’ and “cure” and ‘safe’ can be fluid.  What is not changeable is the sacredness of our relationship one with another. For they are expressions of how God moves in the world. 


Baby Theodore Finn Loch (son of Claire Mavity and Chris Loch) is now a whole week old.  Word is that he will go by “Finn”. They are home from the hospital and appreciate all of the meals and good wishes people from UBC have sent their way.  If you would like to provide a meal, here’s the schedule of meals provided and needed: 


Steve Lee mentioned that we served upwards of 290 to go meals at Loaves & Fishes on Friday. Thanks to the crew who helped out. We will next provide meals on October 29th.  


We received a large donation of potatoes, red cabbage and onions this week from one of our Sacred Harp singers. If you would like some, please let me know and I’ll put some aside for you. Maybe you know someone who can use them.
