Other News and Reminders
Announcing our new Minister
We are thrilled to announce that Rev. Barry Bloom will be the next Minister for the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greeley.
Rev. Barry Bloom was previously the Minister of the Columbine Unitarian Universalist Church. Then he was the Minister of Spiritual Life at the Jefferson Unitarian Church, while the current UUA President Rev. Peter Morales was the Senior Minister, and has continued as Community Minister at the Jefferson Unitarian Church.
We cannot wait to introduce Rev. Barry Bloom to the congregation. A picnic/potluck is being scheduled later this summer as a first introduction for you to meet him and his family. His official start date will be September 1. I am sure we shall all wish Rev. Barry and his family a warm welcome.
LFS Backpack Drive-
For those of you who aren’t aware, the Lutheran Family Services Refugee & Asylee Program office is a ½ block from our UU church and has been using classroom space at the church for job readiness classes on Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons. The UU church of Greeley has also participated in a winter attire drive last winter and helped Sarah Gostenik provide baby carriers to refugees in Greece this last March. Now, gearing up for the upcoming school year, LFS is hosting a backpack drive for refugee and foster care students in our area. If you’d like to participate, please see the flyer on the bulletin board in the foyer for details and you can drop off at the LFS office (1502 9th Ave) by July 22nd, or contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org, 970-336-2208. You may also contact Sarah if you have an interest in volunteering with LFS or learning more about refugee issues. Thank you for supporting our refugees from Somalia, Burma, Cuba and Eritrea and making them feel welcome in Greeley as they work towards self-sufficiency!
