OUR CONGREGATION’S 8TH PRINCIPLE SCHOLARSHIPS.

uuclb.org/ACT   Applications are available both online and in the church office, whenever it’s open.  Scholarship money is available to assist members whose social locations often marginalize and silence their voices, including BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color), LGBTQ+, young adults, youth, disabled people, and those whose socioeconomic status places them in the margins.  Applications need to be submitted by noon on Sunday, March 13.

 

PROGRAM INFORMATION.  UUA.org/GRID

Few details are available now, but this brings you a handy one-page Summary Schedule Grid Document.  The full program should be available in early May.  The (business) AGENDA will be available shortly before GA opens.

 

SOCIAL JUSTICE

Probably the major concern of each General Assembly, it has many pieces.  One thing we know for sure is that this year’s delegates will select a new Congregational Study/Action Issue (CSAI).
