  • Updating Our Mision Statement

    On January 12th the Strategic Planning Team will present a new mission statement for UCCSV that is a clearer reflection of who we are right now and what we hope to do in the future. The Team has been working on a mission statement in addition to new core values and analyzing our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats as a community. The Council has seen this new mission statement and would like to present it to the congregation to be voted on at our January 26th Congregational Meeting. In order to get people familiar with this statement we will be presenting it in several different ways over the next several weeks. First, the new mission statement will be printed in next week's Spirit News and Holly will start a three week worship series focusing on the new mission statement and its implications starting on January 12th. Then after worship on the 12th we will hold a listening circle type meeting to answer any questions anyone has about this process and gather your feedback. During the month of January you will also be invited to participate in the ongoing strategic planning process by contributing to a congregation wide visioning board that will be available to add to during fellowship time in the Gathering Room. Finally you will be invited to vote on the new statement, along with our 2020 budget, at our January 26th meeting immediately after worship.  2020 is a new year of promise for our congregation and we hope to move into the future clear eyed about our identity and our mission and intentions. Be a part of the process!

  • Congregational Meeting January 26th

    All members of UCCSV are requested to join us after worship on Sunday, January 26th for an important congregational meeting to discuss the budget for 2020 and also the proposed new mission statement for our congregation. All are welcome to attend this meeting, which will start directly after worship in our sanctuary. Members of the congregation will then be invited to vote on these crucial issues. Help shape the future of YOUR church by being a part of this process!

  • January Food Donations: Macaroni and Cheese

    During the month of January we will be collecting donations of Macaroni and Cheese for Germantown Help, a local food pantry that provides meals and other assistance for people in our area. In the dark, cold of winter we all love some comfort food like macaroni and cheese. The pasta dish is a staple of the food bags Germantown Help gives to all their clients. So this winter let's give a little comfort to our neighbors and provide them with boxes of macaroni and cheese.
