Family Promise – A community response to homeless children with families, IFSS brings together community, faith community, social services, housing, and a multitude of volunteers in response to homeless children with families.  Through an achievable program of small steps and by providing shelter, meals, comprehensive assistance, and encouragement toward self-reliance in an atmosphere of hospitality and support, families with children work toward a stable living situation and the ability to provide for the needs of each family member.  IFSS  partners with many community organizations, faith communities and charitable services to provide safe shelter for families in crisis.  Through our partnerships with United Way of Laramie County  and many other local and state agencies, as well as private benefactors, we make available a caring environment providing a hand up to families in need.

Wake Now Our Vision Legacy Challenge

Many of you have heard the exciting news about the Wake Now Our Vision Collaborative Campaign Legacy Challenge. The Collaborative Campaign is a shared endeavor by the UUA, the UUMA, UUSC, Starr King, Meadville/Lombard, and the Church of the Larger Fellowship created to lift up the important work of our Unitarian Universalist institutions and the many ways they serve to promote the values of Unitarian Universalism in our nation and in our world.

The Legacy Challenge portion of the Wake Now Our Vision Campaign seeks to strengthen our UU institutions and our congregations through the power of planned giving. A legacy (or planned) gift is often the most meaningful and significant gift individuals will make. A legacy gift is the culmination of a life’s work and it speaks to the values of the giver beyond their lifetime. A strong planned giving program can transform a congregation and, through our combined generosity, has the power to fortify our vital institutions for generations to come.

The Wake Now Our Vision Legacy Challenge will be providing resources to give our congregations the tools they need to start or revive planned giving initiatives. We are creating brochures, webinars, workshops, and web resources to help in harnessing the potential of planned giving in our communities and in our broader movement. These materials will be ready for our congregations by the 2016 General Assembly in New Orleans.

In order to promote and inspire planned giving among Unitarian Universalists, the Wake Now Our Vision Legacy Challenge will match new legacy gift intentions at 10% of the gift’s estimated value (up to a $10,000 match on a $100,000 planned gift) with a cash match. Our institutions and congregations will benefit now from this match and will benefit even more in the future from legacy gifts. This match is made possible through a generous grant offered by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock.

Wanted! Your old bean bags

The Jr. high schoolers are redecorating, and we are requesting new or gently used bean bags for our Jr. room. If you have a beanbag laying around the house that you no longer use, or if you would like to purchase a new one, just drop it off at the Church any time during office hours, or bring it with you on Sunday!


peanut-allergyCHURCH NOTICE:

We have posted signs up around the church a number of times but again we must stress the importance of NOT bringing any peanuts or foods with peanuts in them into the building at all. We have a member of our congregation that has a deathly allergy to peanuts and anything with peanuts in them. When this member discovers there are peanuts in the building, they have to leave immediately. This means that they miss out on our various activities or meetings that they need to be at.  The allergy is critical and we DO NOT want to alienate this member or any others who have this allergy. PLEASE, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD! that we cannot allow peanuts into the building. (If you are bringing in a packaged item, please try to check that it wasn’t manufactured in a facility that processes anything with peanuts.)
