Rev. John Smith
Sermon: "Affirmation in Action"
UU's are not always inclusive and affirming. Affirmations are read in many churches and have repetitions of words that are not always embraced by all. Many UU’s aspire to be loving and caring and peaceful but we are not always welcoming or affirming. Find out how you can choose to put our affirming words and thoughts into action.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, ONE AND ALL!!!

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!!!

Christmas Tree Sale Extended

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
