Here’s a slide show from Earth Day/Pledge Day 4-22-17 Rev. Macklin created it on her phone!

Stewardship includes all the ways we care for our congregation. Financial gifts, gifts of time, and gifts of talent are our love and commitment made visible.  We hope that all aspects of stewardship can be as much about continually growing a spirit of generosity as they are about obligation and responsibility.

Here is a Message from Our Ministers!

There are several options for making financial gifts to UUCB:

Our operating budget

Our operating budget is the way that the church is able to cover all the costs associated with operating the church including minister and staff salary, building and grounds upkeep and maintenance, programming, an outreach.

The Operating budget is supported through:

Special Purposes Fund Committee members Helmut Hentschel, Joanne Wilhelm, Chris Haynes, Sandra Churchill and Kathleen Sideli

Our Special Purposes Fund

The Special Purposes Fund (SPF) supports the Church’s religious, charitable, educational and civic purposes beyond activities under the normal operating budget, via management of both endowment and general funds. It accepts both direct donations and donations from estates through Planned Giving.

In 2014-2015 a donation to the SPF was made by Harv Hegarty and donations were received in memory of Robin Black-Schaffer, Gabe Langdon, and Gene Lawlis. The SPF supplied funds for  grounds improvements, Reverend Wadkins’s moving expenses, special choir music, and a variety of social justice projects endorsed by the Social Justice Funds Committee. Details are in the 2015 Annual Report.

Contributions to SPF may be made through

  • Direct Donations
  • Planned Giving
