IT IS STEWARDSHIP CAMPAIGN TIME 
 
Your Finance Committee recently had a budgeting meeting where we are projecting a $35,000 loss for the next fiscal year. This loss is caused by several factors:
  • Our pledge goal this year was $265,000 and so far only $223,379 has been pledged. Last year we had pledges totaling $252,000.
  • Most expenses are fixed and have increased because of inflation.
  • We would like to give cost-of-living raises to our staff totaling $8,900. Most staff have not had any raises for the last five years. The one raise since then was for our custodian, Jesus, who got a raise to $15/hour four years ago. This $8,900 is included in the $35,000 loss.
 
If you are able, we would appreciate any one-time donations, pledge increases, or new pledges to help alleviate this loss. The Finance Committee will meet next on Friday, April 8th. At that point, we will finalize a budget to send to the Board with the pledges and donations we have received. The Finance Committee is committed to sending the Board a balanced budget.
 
If you haven’t yet pledged, you can do that here. If you cannot access that pledge form, or if you would like to adjust your pledge, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. on the Pledge Team.

We are Open Folks/Folx!
 
What does that mean? It means that we can have up to 130 people in worship. It means that meetings may resume in person.(Please contact Mary to schedule: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..) It means no mask requirement outside. It even means social hour on the patio with coffee and snacks after church on Sunday's! We still require masks indoors because of the children who are still too young to receive vaccinations, and some of our immunocompromised members and friends. 
 
Tuesday, the Board of Trustees sent out some important updates but some important links were missing, including our updated COVID policies. Please see the links below for more information.
 
 
A Special Message From Our Social Justice Team
 
FAIR ELECTIONS INITIATIVE
“Far-right extremists in the Arizona legislature are trying to push through a series of the most egregious anti-voter bills we’ve ever seen.” Common Cause. A new citizen’s initiative is aimed at stopping these laws, but we must get enough signatures in just over three months. There will be someone on the patio after church each Sunday and in the church parking lot every Saturday from 1:00 to 3:00 starting April 2nd with this important petition as well as the other petitions aligned with our UU principals. Please make signing all these petitions a priority and bring friends and family with you. Contact Margo Newhouse This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Beth Britton This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you can help with this effort.
 
 
How to Give to the Church
 
You are asked to use our credit card service (which can be reached by the link or the On-line Giving button on our website), the very easy to use Text-to-Give (1-833-361-5796), or checks may be sent to the office. The on-line giving gives you the option to identify the contribution and use the memo line for checks. A tutorial video on Text-to-Give is here. After setting up an initial “profile” these options are easy to use for subsequent donations.
