December has been a month of one wonderful activity after another at Beverly Unitarian Church. Thank you, thank you to the "champions" of each event, to those who volunteered to do the work needed to ensure the success of a fundraiser and to everyone who attended with their smiles, goodwill and wallets. Being a small church has its advantages; members realize that everyone who is able has to pitch in and our neighbors understand that we need their support to thrive and continue our good work.
We began when the Women of the Castle transformed the sanctuary into a warm setting for BREAKFAST WITH SANTA. The steady stream of eager children and their families lasted for 4 hours and we each have our favorite memories of the event. Thank you, Char Lichtenfeld and all willing elves, for believing in Santa and serving up 250 breakfasts!
BUCs parking lot had the most beautiful trees in town thanks to Jean Hardy Robinson who `stepped up for another year as champion of the CHRISTMAS TREE SALE. 2016's polar vortex ending brought an added sparkle to tree sellers' eyes and very few trees remained homeless.
To help us with our decluttering attempts as well as our restocking joys, Pam Carlson gathered seasonal treasures and the castle foyer became SANTA'S HOLIDAY BOUTIQUE. The Boutique moved to the second floor to become part of the ANNUAL COOKIE WALK, a yummy happening after this year's CHILDREN'S HOLIDAY PAGEANT, "A New Star in Town." Our Religious Education Director, Amanda Price, and the children of BUC, make it happen every year. How we enjoyed the "awwws" and laughter that the children's performance brought. It isn't every day that we see an unlikely King Herod (Mike Wolf) and our minister (John Smith) turned into a turban headed king.
Hoping to see a fine turn out on Christmas Eve. What a way to end 2016!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, ONE AND ALL!!!
Last weekend the snow fell... and fell... and continued to fall. Winter wonderland vistas were everywhere, including on our Christmas Tree lot. The trees are beautiful and looking for a good home so our 4 day sale has become our five day sale. Help us have another sell out year and or stop by to lend a hand to the cold volunteers.
Saturday, December 17 from 11 AM until 5 PM
You can believe in Santa on this magical day when we welcome the larger community for this favorite, annual FUNdraiser that fills our sanctuary with smiles. Yes, it is that time of year ALREADY. Comfort yourself, friends and family with hot food, good coffee and friendly faces all for a $5/person donation. You can also browse the White Elephant Holiday Boutique to find the perfect decoration to fill in that one empty spot in your home. Our 1st Floor is Wheel Chair Accessible.
It's a Beverly Unitarian Church tradition that our children Trick or Treat for UNICEF on the Sunday before Halloween. Normally, all the kids show up in costume and head for 103rd & Longwood Drive to solicit Starbucks and CVS shoppers and every passer by they spot, shaking their little orange boxes for donations. This year was different; only three young people showed up (Carolyn Wilbon, Teddy Bernard as Rocky, Gavin Cottrill as the dice and our Religious Education Director, Amanda Price, the OWL. Undaunted, they headed down the hill and had a very fun and lucrative morning. Thank you, generous donors, and of course, our determined children and their fearless leader. Visit our Facebook page to see them in action.
Childcare for our youngest is available during services.
All children are welcome!
