Reaching Toward NCUU Goals
The Sunday Service Committee has renewed efforts to reach out to nonwhites, and to the young, with the following NCUU goals and the President’s letter.
During the fall we will have:
– Had two services by African Americans, a service about a Black and LGBTQ+ woman, two Hispanic heritage services, and two services about younger generations.
– Visited two Black churches
But we need your help. To see and take part in these Sunday services by us does nothing to inform or engage the larger community nor advance our NCUU goals.
To bring in new viewers and attendees, we need the help of all of you to Reach Out.
Share the announcements with friends, neighbors, and relatives. Invite them in person or on ZOOM.
If you use any social media, this is a successful way of passing along announcement
Individual Efforts Are Progress Toward Our Larger Mission.
