This Week at UBC

Updated every Monday

Hello Friends: 


On Sunday, we had another outdoor in-person service on the lawn. It was a little chilly, but we were warmed by the sun, the blooming flowers and trees, and the wonderful reunion that in-person church offers. The Worship Planning Team is meeting on Wednesday and the Council is meeting on Sunday.  Both groups will take up how, when and where we meet in the coming months. We welcome your input and ideas. As always, we want to be responsible, inclusive and safe.  


The UBC Council is meeting this Sunday to finalize a proposed budget for the upcoming year.  Here’s one final plea for pledges of time talent and treasure. 

If you have not already done so, please send your intentions for monetary pledges to Nancy Myers at You can also call her at 651-641-0323.  

Here is a link to the Time and Talent form.  

If you are having trouble filling this out, just give me a call and I’ll help you with it. 


If you have a report you would like to include in the Annual Report, please send it to Trista at by Wednesday, May 19th. We’d like to have the completed annual report in your hands by Sunday, May 30th. The annual meeting is on June 13th right after church. 


The semi-monthly newsletter deadline is today, May 10th.  Chris Follett will continue to produce two newsletters per month through June. We’ll then shift back to once a month. Please send your items and photos to Chris at


The ABC/RGR Creation Collaborative meets monthly to share ideas and initiatives about caring for our world.  This Thursday at 5:30pm, UBC’s storm water grants will be the featured topic of discussion. Barb Patterson and I will be presenting on the UBC Rain Garden project. Here’s the zoom link.
