First of all, I want to thank all of you for making me feel so welcome at WUUC. Since arriving I have been busy learning how the church functions, figuring out where things are kept, and meeting so many wonderful people.  I am looking forward to meeting the rest of the congregation as well.

Over the next several weeks, I will focus primarily on the RE program for the children and youth. I plan to meet with the teachers for each age group and learn how I can better support them and all of WUUC’s young people. In addition, I plan to contact each of the parents at WUUC in order to learn more about you and how we can best serve your families.

I spent last Sunday evening with the Senior Youth Group (YRUU) and had a wonderful time meeting and working with several of the youth. The group packed up your generous donations of menstrual supplies and loaded them into my car. On Thursday I made a trip to Compass Housing Alliance (CHA) in Seattle to drop them off. CHA estimated the value of the donation at $1,500! Thank you so much for your generosity and for supporting our youth in their social-action activities.

If you have any questions or suggestions or just want to introduce yourself, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am available by phone and email, or we can meet in the office.

Thank you again for the warm welcome and your patience as I learn your names and learn how WUUC works.

Peace and laughter,
