Chalice Lighter Program

Chalice Lighter Program

SUMMER 2009 CALL

The Summer 2009 Chalice Lighter Call for the Southwestern Unitarian Universalist Conference has been awarded to the Huntsville Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Huntsville, Texas.

The Huntsville Fellowship is seeking Chalice Lighter support of $24,000 to help with installation of heating, air conditioning, and electrical systems in the new church building currently under construction.

Huntsville Unitarian Universalist Fellowship was established in 1983. Growth of the Huntsville Fellowship has been severely hampered by lack of a permanent building. Thus, in April 2009, the Fellowship overwhelmingly voted to construct its own building on 2.85 acres of land that had been previously donated. The April Congregational Vote represents an important step by the congregation and this effort should do much to further communicate UU ideals in the area. We hope you will join us in our enthusiastic support of this Chalice Lighter Call. A new church home is always a big deal and Huntsville’s vision needs your support!

In order to be a Chalice Lighter, each of us gives a minimum of $10 in response to each Call. There are three Chalice Lighter Calls each year. Your contributions to this Call will help the Huntsville Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. All of your contributions (100%) go to the Chalice Lighter recipient. Please give as generously as you can.

If you’d like to know more about the Huntsville Fellowship, we invite you to visit their website http://www.huntsvilleuu.tx.uua.org. The building progress is exciting!

Please make copies of this letter and distribute them to the members of your congregation. Talk to your friends at church about the Chalice Lighter Program. Most importantly, tell them about this exciting opportunity in Huntsville. Please send your check, made out to “SWUUC Chalice Lighters” to:
