Oct 13: This Week at BBUUC

This week at BBUUC….


October 13:  Rev. Jack Ford presents “Join the Move: An Association Sunday”

The UUA has moved!  Our Boston headquarters at 25 Beacon Street, occupied for nearly 100 years, has become out-dated and outgrown.  This month, UU congregations all over the country are celebrating Association Sunday by focusing on this theme called Join the Move.  Come and support our Association, and perhaps learn something new about the history and direction of this amazing Unitarian Universalist faith.

Led by: Ken Christiansen

 Accompanied by: Gary Smart



Our Teens will remain in service this week!

  • 12pm Goods and Services Auction Planning Meeting – Middle School Room – BBUUC is planning a fantastic Goods and Services Auction Gala night on February 15th, and we are putting together an Auction Planning Team today! Please join us Sunday for a meeting at Noon in the Middle School Classroom if you would like to help us create an evening to remember and a successful fundraising event to improve the financial health of our church and support its ministry.

We are looking for dedicated folks who are creative, motivated and enjoy making things happen! We need volunteers to assist with planning, promoting, entertaining, food and beverages, acquiring donations (from members, friends, local businesses and services), cataloguing, pricing, organizing, inspiring, and cat-herding. Our goal is to make this a fun and profitable event, with the “fun” part extending to the work of the Planning Team. If you have ideas, experience with Auctions or event planning, and you are willing to donate your time and talent, please join us at noon after fellowship!
