Less Than a Month to Go to Donate to Fall Chalice Lighters
There are less than 30 days to go to support the Unitarian Universalist Church of Urbana-Champaign’s Faithify campaign to help open the doors of FirstSteps, a transitional house for people returning home from prison to Champaign County, Illinois. Chalice Lighters will contribute $800 toward the campaign, but they’ll need more than that to reach their goal of $8,000. So please visit https://faithify.org/projects/open-firststeps-re-entry-house-for-people-returning-home-from-prison-to-champaign-co-illinois/ and donate what you can to this worthy project.
Our Fall 2019 Chalice Lighter Call is also taking contributions until the end of this year. Please help us support Peoples Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, as they take their Sunday morning music program to the next level by hiring a professional choir director and a professional weekly accompanist (or band leader) for the first time in at least 30 years or more. They feel that this would significantly improve worship, deepen the spiritual life of members, retain visitors, and attract new people. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to support them in this effort.
