While raising money is essential for maintaining our UU church building and staffing, fund raising can also be a good way to learn more about our members and join them in fun and interesting activities. 

For example, through the Marketplace, we’ve enjoyed getting to know each other better at

  • themed dinners,  
  • wine & cheese events,
  • special occasion parties, 
  • a cabaret evening. 
  • cooking classes,
  • photography,
  • sailing,
  • music and even
  • birding lessons.  

We’ve been able to get help from our fellow UU’s with such chores as

  • shopping,
  • cleaning,
  • driving,
  • power washing and
  • tax preparation assistance. 

Some lucky folks were able to purchase haircare and even relaxing massages as well as special out-of-town excursions. 

We're a creative and enthusiastic congregation, so let your imagination take you to new ideas to share with your fellow members! How about a "Paint Party" or a guided birding trek to one of our nearby National Wildlife Refuges? Who can forget Betty Green’s sumptuous bread-making class or the raucous “BBQ and Tall Tales” evening?

This year’s Marketplace Planning Committee consists of Susan and Preston Garrison, Betty Green, Patty and Dennis Alsobrook, and Julie and Tom Hilburn.
