    Did you know we now have a “Sunday School” that is meeting in Mathews Cottage on Sunday mornings before the adult meeting???  Thanks to Bill Nunan, we now have a program for children.


    About our fellowship:  As you know, our membership is high in quality, but limited in quantity.  Please come to Sunday meetings whenever you can.  More is better:  more energy, more ideas, more hugs, more discussion.  Your participation is valued.  Hope to see more of you!


    The SBUF ANNUAL AUCTION held on Saturday, February 10 at the Johnson-Klein residence was again a success thanks to our gracious host and hostess, the good food, and the generosity of everyone involved.  The best part???  We all had a really good time.  Thank you one and all, for your efforts and loving energy!


    DEFINITION:  “GOD to me is that creative Force, behind and in the universe, who manifests Himself as energy, as life, as order, as beauty, as thought, as conscience, as love.”      by Henry Sloane Coffin        What is your definition?  Do you have one?
