A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Over the next month the UUCGC Board is asking you to be on a vision quest with us. We want you to help us guide your spiritual journey and the direction of the UUCGC. Your feedback on the vision boards will help us visualize together how to prioritizes the funds we all contribute to this congregation.
Write on the post-its and add your input on the vision boards at church. Answer: How you want to experience church on Sunday, what type of services move you, and how do you want to make our community and world a better place? Share your ideas and build together the future of the UUCGC.
We know to continue the current services, religious education, music, ministerial supports and community outreach, including hosting Narcotics Anonymous two time per week we need to manager a $4,800 budget. Currently by board estimates we fall short of this by $1,000 monthly. We know our mission is a bold one, but the current needs of our community are calling us to be bold. We need to be here and let others know that an open and liberal faith awaits them.

A Message from Rev. Beth Marshall
On this 115th day of January 2018, I am watching the lilac bush and clusters of daffodils outside my kitchen window struggle to bloom in the middle of a late season snow. I know deep in my bones that they will finally bloom. Their time will come; I have faith. For me, the determination of those daffodils and lilacs speaks to the persistence and patience I see in Unitarian Universalism, and particularly within the UU Congregation of Greater Canton. Through difficult times and times when things may have felt frozen, there was hard work happening, sometimes behind the scenes. Through it all, energy was flowing, just waiting for the right time to emerge.
I am excited about the work the board and bylaws committee have done this spring to aid in the congregation in functioning more efficiently, and hopefully with less overall stress. Long meetings and lively discussions are often the fertilizer for bigger blooming and growth in the future as they embody a strong commitment for the future, and a willingness to do the necessary hard work.
With so many serious issues to deal with as a people of faith, it is easy to forget that it doesn’t always need to be hard work. Let’s get the bylaws updated and voted on, complete the pledge campaign successfully and move on to having some fun together.
In faith and hope for days to come,
