Sunday Service (online)- “A Soul Inventory on the High Holy Days” by the Rev. Jane Smith

Sunday, September 20, 10:00 a.m. online service—”A Soul Inventory on the High Holy Days”  By Rev. Jane Smith

The High Holy Days of the Jewish faith are a sacred time of forgiveness and repentance. In exploring these days of contemplation and celebration, we acknowledge a time to return to one’s true self, emerging with a replenished heart and renewed spirit.

Special Event after service this Sunday, Sept. 20!

Since August, Channing members and friends have been working closely with Liz Coit, a representative of Stewardship for Us. Stewardship for Us is a program offered by the Unitarian Universalist Association to guide congregations in their financial decisions.  Through meeting with many of our committees and leaders, Liz has compiled a financial snapshot of our congregation.  This Sunday, she will share much of what she learned with us.  This session will feature what she has heard from Channing folks, as well as a discussion about making appropriate financial decisions moving forward.  This is a very important next step for our congregation and will have a direct impact on our community in the months and years ahead.  I invite you to set aside some post-worship time, settle in, and join us in this important discussion.  The presentation will end with a time for a question and answer session.  I hope to see you there!

Rev Jane
