Twice Weekly Virtual Pastoral Chats with Rev Susan
In response to our need to be emotionally and socially close, Rev. Susan invites you to an informal chat session where we can be together apart. Just drop in!
Join on Thursday, May 21st, at 2:00 pm
via this link: https://uuma.zoom.us/j/983654955
Both will be held via Zoom.
The Pastoral Care team is where to look for the helpers (and to be a helper).
As you may have seen in recent communications, we've started to gather a list of people who are interested in helping to deliver groceries and other items for members of the congregation that need to remain homebound. We're also gathering a list of volunteers who are willing to call fellow members to reach out and check in with people. During this time of social distancing, we don't need to be socially isolated and a simple phone call can go a long way in bringing some cheer to everyone's day.
The Annual meeting of
the Unitarian Universalist Church of Savannah
Sunday, June 14th after the service
We will meet to:
Hear a report from the Board
Vote on the proposed budget
Elect a slate of officers for the 2020-2021 church year
You'll find the proposed budget in the member's area of this web site and the absentee ballot will be posted soon. If you haven't requested access yet, please do so on that page and it will be granted to any member in good standing (it may take several days).
Watch for reminder emails about this important meeting - it's important to have a quorum and this will be our first entirely virtual annual meeting.
Hannah Ringer and her husband, Shawn, and baby boy, Archer, moved from Iowa to Georgia two years ago. Her family relocated to the east coast to be closer to her two stepchildren, ages 9 and 10. Hannah and Shawn were drawn to the beautiful city of Savannah but currently reside in Richmond Hill.
Hannah went to the University of Iowa, where she received her bachelor's degree in biology in 2009. She then lived in Alaska for some time, where she earned her master's degree in secondary science education in 2016. While in graduate school, she had the opportunity to teach in a remote village in Alaska where students actually flew to school!
Hannah currently teaches middle and high school science at Savannah Classical Academy. She is moving out to Richmond Hill Middle School to teach 8th grade science for the 2020-2021 school year. Hannah is very passionate about education and enjoys working with students of all ages. She is excited for the opportunity to be the Director of Religious Education at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Savannah. The strong sense of community, social justice, and core principles of the church have really drawn Hannah and her family in. She looks forward to exploring her spirituality in the comfort of such an inviting and open church atmosphere.

Another Way to Painlessly Support UUCS
Did you know that when you shop via Amazon that there are two ways to support the church?
Amazon account holders can choose to use Amazon Smile to designate the "Unitarian Universalist Church of Savannah" as the recipient of a small portion of each purchase (remember to save an Amazon Smile bookmark (smile.amazon.com)). You can also simply link through to Amazon via the text at the top of the right column on our website home page and when you order UUCS then also receives a small portion.
