My Experience as a Visiting StewardOur family officially joined First Unitarian at the beginning of 2016. And while we had attended sporadically for years, there were lots of people we didn't know. So when Ellen announced that the Stewardship Committee was looking for volunteers to be visiting stewards, I thought it would be a fun way to meet some new people. And it definitely was that.
I had a blast hearing about people's experiences at First Unitarian. We met over cups of tea and coffee, at coffee shops and in people's homes. Hearing fellow member's stories about why they joined the church, or what what they love about the community, or special memories.
If you're interested in serving as a visiting steward this year, let Ellen Foley or me know or email FirstUnitarianStewardship@gmail.com. We'd love to have you involved!
The Interview SeriesThis year we'll also be publishing an interview series with First Unitarian members on topics like:
- Visiting Stewardship experiences
- New Member stories
- First Unitarian memories
- Updates about the Stewardship Campaign
Want to be a part of the Series?If you have topics you'd like to hear about or if you'd like to contribute to the series by being interviewed or writing a post, please email FirstUnitarianStewardship@gmail.com or talk to me on an upcoming Sunday morning.
