Membership Committee - Our Mission is for visitors, friends and members to feel welcome and connected! We are busy thinking of innovative ways of letting everyone know, how appreciated everyone that comes through our doors is, (even if it’s virtually for now.) Especially all newcomers joining us. Please go to the FPC Newcomer page for more information about how to be part of our contact list and welcome you to FPC! http://www.uuchelmsford.org/newcomers.html
Faith-in-Action Grants - The Church Council is continuing to fund Faith-in-Action grants during this unique time. If you have a favorite non-profit or worthy cause you wish to support for holiday projects or other needs, please contact Stephanie Owen or Joan Keane for application instructions. Thank you.
Auction! - Start the New Year off right by joining the First Parish 2021 Auction Planning meeting on Zoom Tuesday January 5th at 7:30pm! We will be talking about the online platform to use, how to adjust auction items to be pandemic-safe and more! Contact the church office for the Zoom link.
Snow Removal - This year has been a strange one for sure. This winter will be no different. We were told that the company that does our plowing and walk & stair clearing will no longer be available for anything except plowing. We have been looking for another company to do all of this but to no avail. Our parking lot is plowed, but that still leaves the walkways and stairs to be cleared of any snow.
We are having the church's snow thrower serviced and should have it back by the time you read this. Having said that, we will need people to be able to help out and do the walkways and stairs after a storm. We are covered through January 13th at least. At this point there is very little activity at the church so that it is not critical that it be done first thing after the storm but should be done within 24 hours. This may change if the nursery school reopens.
If you are willing to be on a call list when there is a pending storm or if there is a particular day of the week that you can do it please let Walter Cole know. He will be happy to meet with folks to show what is involved. It can be a family team too! Walter Cole will be the coordinator and contact folks based on the forecast. Any offers to assist in this endeavor will be greatly appreciated.
Your Building Committee
Walter Cole, Ron Cook, & Tom Coffey
