The first Chalice Lighter call for this church year will support the Community UU Church in Pasco, in southeastern Washington. This summer the old HVAC system in their recently acquired building failed, and a new system was needed right away, not later in accordance with their adopted plan and budget. Pasco had some cash reserves allocated to other important growth plan goals, so they were able to forward fund the purchase and installation of the necessary equipment. However, that means those reserves are no longer available for projects with a higher priority. This call will restore the fund and allow Pasco to continue as planned. Contributions to the Pasco call are being accepted through November 7.
The Chalice Lighter Program assists the growth of new and existing congregations in the Pacific Northwest District by providing grants funded exclusively through the generosity of our Chalice Lighter donors. Chalice Lighters pledge to give at least $15 to each of (no more than) three calls per year. If you would like to join ranks with over 2,400 PNWD Chalice Lighters, click here.
