Oct. 6 — Next Food Bank Volunteer Night


Join Us! Just 20 minutes from UUFSD. It’s always from 6:00 – 8:00 PM – anyone over 7 years old can help! Mostly we just put food in boxes on an assembly line or bag fresh produce – really easy, no lifting, no bending, great camaraderie. In September we bagged 4,500 lbs. of apples – in JUST 2 HOURS!

This is a wonderful way of helping locally those in need and strengthening our UUFSD community as well. The San Diego Food Bank distributes over 20 million pounds of food annually to individuals, families and a network of nonprofit organizations that work to alleviate hunger throughout San Diego county. They need our help!

 Consider the hopes, expectations, and concerns for our new minister

Time is running out!

All ministerial search surveys and focus groups must be completed by Sept. 19 so the search committee has time to compile the data into our report and meet UUA deadlines. Please help us describe our fellowship and find the minister who is the best fit by doing BOTH the survey and a focus group. Focus group discussions with 5-10 people add nuance to the survey and are fun and enlightening. We’d love to hear the ideas of more young people and parents. There is a focus group after the 11 o’clock service on Sept. 11, and another is being added on Sept. 18 after the 11 o’clock service with babysitting provided. The survey is available online at the link below or on paper in the fellowship office.

Thanks to those of you who have already done these! Use the link below to complete the survey.
