Starting a new church = Brockport Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (BUUF)


What's it like to start a new church? I have some experience doing this but not much. I was a member of Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church in Rochester, NY when a group of people left and started what was to become Spiritus Christi.


Now, in Brockport, NY, a small group of enthusiastic folks are starting a Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. We are right at the beginning stages and you will be able to follow the progress right here on UU A Way Of Life. Periodically, updates and news on the effort will be posted here. We need your prayers, positive thoughts, knowledge, ideas, and if possible actual work and energy in making this dream come true.


The next steering committee meeting will by on Thursday evening, 05/28/09, at 7:00 PM in Brockport, NY. It you are interested in attending, call me at 585-637-0040 and/or send me an email at david@davidgmarkham.com.


If you are geographically distant and would still like to participate, let me know, and I will put you on our email list to receive information about the work, and the BUUF newsletter. Financial donations would be greatly welcomed to cover our start up costs.
