Alliance Meeting, May 2, 2pm, Parish Hall. It happens to all of us. The day we can no longer drive.  A call to Easy Lift changes our lives. They are helping  a teenager  with cerebral palsy, a lady with multiple sclerosis, a man in a wheelchair.  Those of us who can no longer drive.  Like so many others, Easy Lift has enhanced my life so that I can swim each day.  Those of us who take our calls, the dedicated drivers, they are a group of patient, caring individuals who are there each day for those who need Easy Lift.  This program is the result of the vision and energy of  the executive director Ernesto Paredes who will be our guest today.  Please give him a warm welcome for the dedication he shows to enhance so many lives.



 

Unitarian Society
Music Department Concert

June 8, 3pm, Sanctuary

 

The choirs of the USSB Music Department will present their "greatest hits" in a special benefit concert in the Sanctuary, open to the community, with performances by the Chancel Choir, the Women's Chorale and the Men's Chorus. The Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara makes this event possible featuring all three chancel choirs, which is known for a diverse and imaginative repertoire. Under the leader­ship of Choir Director, Ken Ryals, since 2007, our choirs now sing world-class works from many realms-Church to Classical, Broadway to Pop. The concert will reprise many of the excellent pieces.


Proceeds from the concert will help send the Women's Chorale to the UU Musicians Network conference in San Diego in July to present some of their music to help train other community-based choirs. The overall goal of the con­cert is to raise $1,500 to support the high-profile presence of our Women's Chorale at this annual conference. The concert will be followed by a wine and cheese recep­tion. A donation of $10 per person is suggested and will be accepted at the door. (Reservation sign-ups can be made with the choir at Sunday services leading up to and includ­ing June 8th.)We hope everyone will join us for this fun event. Our singers have put a lot of work into this marvelous music. Enjoying the results together will make for a lovely Sunday afternoon. Ken Ryals

Pastoral Care E-mail

“Nurturing a spirit of connection and support during times of need.”

When a crisis hits or a major life transition happens, sometimes we need a little extra support. “Pastoral Care” is the term used to describe the kind of care that we offer one another during these hard times.  It may mean a visit from the minister, a bouquet of flowers or a hot meal, or simply sitting down with a cup of tea and another member of the congregation who is willing to listen.

The goal of Pastoral Care is to offer a supportive presence, to help in transition, to provide an environment of hope and growth, and to offer support on the spiritual journey.  If a member has a more serious concern or an ongoing need for support, we can help with a referral to outside resources.

Members, please login for more information.
