of our services are led by them! We get an opportunity to listen to wide-ranging topics of interest and importance to our fellow AUUS members and friends. I encourage you to support them by attending and engaging in the conversations that are provided. It looks to be another interesting month of topics. If you are looking for a way to contribute at AUUS, this month provides the perfect opportunity. We will be painting the church on August 20th and finishing up on the 21st after the service. Please bring your ladders, and tape and plastic if you have it to assist. We will provide the spray gun for the new lovely red we plan to decorate the outside of the building with. So, we will be the little red church on Seward! Very cool. I have attached the minutes of the congregational meeting from June and from our most recently approved board meeting to keep you abreast of the discussions we are involved in on your behalf. If you have any input on these decisions and the governing of the church in general, please contact anyone on the board (members are provided at the end of the newsletter).
