“Share the Plate”
to be Initiated by NCUU
In January NCUU will begin to contribute to local charities through “Share the Plate”. On the second Sunday of each month we will take a second offering that will be donated to a different local charity every month. Charities will be selected by the Social Justice Committee. “Share the Plate” is practiced by many UU fellowships, suggested and sanctioned by the UUA, and will promote more visibility in our community.
Martin Luther King Parade
Wanda Brown will coordinate our participation in the MLK Parade in Crystal River on Monday, January 20th. There is a signup sheet in the foyer.

Kitchen Table Forum
“One Rake at a Time”:
How Individuals Help Clean Up Our Springs
Saturday, January 18, 2020, 2:00-4:00 PM
Forum Leader: Art Jones
The presentation will describe how volunteers work to clean invasive weeds and toxic algae out of fresh-water springs in Florida. After removal, the organics and muck are recycled to gardens and farmlands. After an area is cleaned, eel grass can be planted on the bottom of the water way to restore it back to a natural and original Habitat.
Community Connections will now be available on the NCUU.org website!

Sunday Service Leaders Needed
We have some terrific services planned for the winter and spring, but need Service Leaders. See Jeannie or Pam if you would like to know what is planned, and where the need is.
— Sunday Service Committee
Please Join Us on a Committee. Help Needed!
NCUU needs your help and assistance, especially if you don’t presently serve on any committees. Every little bit helps, so…
Please talk to a BoD member of Committee Chairperson about your interests in joining in the work of our congregation.
Social Activities Committee
The Social Activities Committee is in need of volunteers to help plan potlucks and other fun events, bring goodies for after services and take turns cleaning up the kitchen after coffee and discussion. Please make sure you thank Matthew C and Pam R as well as several others for their services. Contact Pam or Matthew if you can help in any way even 1 Sunday a month. Thank you!
