Message from the President:
President’s Message 3/1/19
As we look forward to the year ahead, I would like to, once again, thank all of you who made 2018 a great year for UBTS! We transitioned through personnel, procedural, banking and software changes. We reached out to our neighboring community for many events. We installed new technology. We celebrated ‘Reverend” Angela Denton. We performed some needed improvements and cleanup of our physical space. And we had many fundraisers including several concerts, our pen fundraiser, and our Easter Basket fundraiser, and of course our 50/50 raffle.
2019 promises to be even better. With our new Board of Trustees in place, we hope to continue to introduce more innovations and provide solutions to some of the issues that need resolving or present themselves this year. I am honored and proud to serve as your Board President again this year, and I welcome and acknowledge all our Trustees, both new and returning. These include Karen Marsh, our new Vice President, Charlie Kirlew, Board Treasurer and new member Joyce Hilary is our Board Secretary. Members Edy Cartier and Valerie Wake-Evans continue their term and we welcome back to the Board Angie Stewart as this year’s Board Alternate. The 2019 Board of Trustees Induction will be on March 31 during the Sunday service.
One of the areas I would like to concentrate on this year is getting more members involved with the operations of UBTS. I ask that you help through providing your skills and expertise by joining one or more of our Team Ministries. We are always looking for people to help share the load and more importantly, provide the perspective and experience that only members can provide. The complete list of Ministries was included in your Annual Meeting Packet. Please see the Team Leader or Board Liaison for the Ministry you are interested in. Your participation DOES make a difference and I encourage each of you to “step-up” to the challenge.
Our first fundraiser, which will kick off this year’s concert series, is “Joyful Reunion 3.” Former UBTS Music Director Laura DuBois will return to UBTS for a special concert on March 31, 2019 at 12:45pm. Laura will be joined by our own Spirit of Peace, as well as several special guests, all of which you have enjoyed at UBTS in the past. The concert will include a diverse program from classical to gospel and everything in between. Tickets are $20 and will be available at the Church or through our website. Don’t miss this truly joyful reunion!!!
