Rev. Julia L. Brown
It’s been a while. What a wild and wonderful few months! My daughter, Louise, was born just a few days before Christmas. Ben and I are so in love with her, and we’re starting to sleep through the night again. We enjoy seeing her smile and listening to her coo! What a delight it is to watch her learn the world around her.
I loved being on maternity leave and getting to have that time with my family, but I am also so glad to be back with you all! As we get into 2023, there is lots to accomplish. We’re going to continue working on our community garden, so if you have any scrap wood boards, cardboard, soil, mulch, or other garden supplies you’d like to donate, we’re happy to arrange pick-up! We’re hoping to have some veggies sprouting by the summer time.
The steering committee is also continuing to look into livestreaming options for our worship service, ways to share our building and space with the community, and how to best reach out into the community. If you’re interested in serving on this committee or have any ideas to present, please let us know!
The Consistory has organized four additional committees on which anyone can serve! They are:
The goal of all these committees is to ensure that the business of the church continues and is accomplished in a timely and meaningful manner. Please pray about how you might be able to contribute your time and talents to God’s work through the church, and consider serving on one or more of these teams.
We have an exciting year ahead! God is truly at work at Solomon’s UCC, and we have the honor of getting to participate in that work. May God’s callings be loud and clear for each of us!
