Through the Pacific Northwest District UU Chalice Lighter program, our congregation will receive $18,059 to upgrade the audio visual system in the sanctuary.. For our congregation to qualify for a Chalice Lighter grant, a certain percentage of the congregation must agree to answer at least three calls per year with a minimum pledge of $15 each time. Our thanks to all of the Chalice Lighters here at UUCS who made this grant possible.
The Chalice Lighter Program assists the growth of new and existing Unitarian Universalist member congregations in the Pacific Northwest with grants to provide vital capabilities and infrastructure. Grants are funded exclusively through contributions from Unitarian Universalists who participate as Chalice Lighters.Since its inception in 1990, members of UU congregations have provided over $800,000 to help our congregations grow.
Please consider supporting this worthy cause yourself.When you become a Chalice Lighter, each year you will receive no more than three call letters. The letter will explain the express purpose of the call and ask for your donation of at least $15. The grant must be used for those purposes, so you will know exactly where your money is going. Ten percent of call receipts, but never more than $2,500, will help offset direct costs of administering the Chalice Lighter program.
