Hello, friends and members of UIF!
ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING - Our UIF Annual Meeting will be Sunday, February 28th at 10:30am via ZOOM. Annual Meeting Packets are available in the office (and on the website). If you would like to pick one up at the church office, please let Jeanne know. We have some volunteers who are willing to deliver if you need. You can participate in the Annual Meeting from your phone or the Internet.
- Sunday at 9:30 virtual worship. Found on Facebook (www.facebook.com/uiflc) OR on YouTube at our UIFLC channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC48ZorvqlmodW7DKTSofJ3A). Worship plans attached for midweek Lenten service 2/24/21 and Sunday 2/28/21. After Sunday’s virtual worship (approximately 10:30am) this week, we’ll have our ANNUAL MEETING.
- UIF virtual Sunday school by email/Facebook comes out on Saturdays.
- IN PERSON WORSHIP will restart on Sunday, March 7th at 11am. No RSVP needed. Everyone will be masked, physically distanced, temperature screened on the way in, and names recorded (in case contact tracing is necessary). We will sing a couple songs (a capella or with recorded music) and use most of the same worship plan as the 9:30 livestream service. (The livestream will continue Sundays at 9:30am on Facebook and YouTube.)
MIC STUDENT RACHEL: If you want to hear more about Rachel and Nathi’s journey (our MIC student and her fiancé), they have begun a video blog on YouTube (search “Swazi American Love”), to talk about faith and their journey to marriage. Rachel is back in the U.S. and will be participating soon again at UIF! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRaNnXvrypyyrTbMzyDPX9A
