Several extra Kudos to Barb and the Aesthetics subcommittee for researching and finding appropriate furnishings for our new and refurbished spaces (more to come!). Many Kudos to Lee Cornell and Brent Litch for researching and installing all of the technical equipment which enhance services, meetings and communication at UUFA.

Capital Campaign Commitments

New or additional Capital Campaign Commitments are still needed, especially from new members or anyone else who hasn't yet made a pledge to the building campaign. Click here for a Capital Campaign Commitment form to print, fill out and sign, and turn in (or email) to Shaye Gambrell, our Congregational Administrator; John Olive, the Building Project Treasurer; or Herb West, Capital Campaign Chair.  Donor recognition opportunities are also available.

If you have not paid your Capital Campaign Commitment in full, please consider doing so before the end of 2018.  The sooner you can pay off your commitment, the less money the Fellowship will have to borrow, thus lowering our interest expense and eventual mortgage payment.
