Leadership Zoom Gathering May 30, and 2024-25 UUFC events calendar

To all leaders of teams, task forces, councils, committees, projects and events, and the Board, at the Fellowship. Thank-you for all you have done and are doing at the Fellowship this year! And, an invitation… We began the year with a leadership retreat, and it will be good to touch base now as the regular church year winds down, to give updates on so much that has emerged as we have been building new ways this year. Please plan to join us for a ZOOM meeting on Thursday, May 30, at 7 PM.


You have probably noticed that the Fellowship is quite busy these days and sometimes it’s a challenge to find space for your meeting or event. To help us plan for the next church year we’d like to get all the major 2024-25 Fellowship events on the calendar now — we’re aiming for by the end of May.

Can you please send a note to office@uucorvallis.org so that we can add events to the main list, begin to coordinate as needed, and get things on the calendar?


From the “Secure Housing and Food for All” Team

We hope you all had a joyful holiday season. Thank you very much for sharing your time and effort to help the people of Corvallis who are struggling each day to survive by donating warm clothing and food items. It’s a new year and we continue with our efforts to help our less fortunate community.

The Unity Shelter is open again and can use volunteers, the Corvallis Drop-in Center is in need of warm clothing, and the South Corvallis Food Pantry needs to refill its shelves.

The Secure Shelter and Food for All team is meeting in the library of the UU on January 14 after the service. Please join us if you want to become active in this group.

  • Gloves
  • Belts (plain, size 30-36)
  • ANY Outdoor Wear: hoodies, coats, sweatpants. Water-resistant preferred.

Democracy Action Team: Let’s Buy Some Stamps!

During the last election cycle, members of UUFC’s Democracy Action Team wrote 20,000 letters to voters around the country, encouraging all to vote.  Our team is gearing up for another critical election season this year, and to prepare, they need to buy stamps for all those letters.  (Given the price of stamps, the cost of being a letter-writer can be prohibitive for some).  Several members of the team are offering a one-to-one match for all donations to the Stamp Fund:  All donations up to $5000 will be matched!   Stamp prices increase on January 21 – can you help raise another $5000 to support this important work?
