Sunday, January 22, 2017 Annual Congregational Meeting at 10:00 am. Please join us for the service of Worshipful Work. The annual business meeting will be incorporated into the worship service of the Yuma United Church of Christ. This service acknowledges and recaps the mission of 2016 and is where your voice and vote count for deciding the mission of the Yuma United Church of Christ for 2017. The budget for 2017 will need to be voted on and approved. Several additional items will need to be voted on as well. Consensus vs Current Structure Six month trial to see how it will work with our small congregation. Vested Individuals an additional category of membership that doesn’t require signing the covenant. For those who are active and tithe but do not feel the need to sign a covenant. Revision of Pastor Bonnie’s Licensed Covenant Agreement. Call for Rev. Bonnie McNair to be the ordained minister of Yuma UCC with a new covenant agreement. Now that Rev. Bonnie is ordained her covenant needs to be revised from Licensed pastor to Ordained pastor.

January 29, 10:00am – Worship in the spirit of Taize: meditation through simple song, silence and sacred reading.
