Welcome to the first UUSM Newsletter Digest. In announcing that our new, web-based UUSM Newsletter is now online, the UUSM Newsletter Committee is keeping up with a long tradition of informing the membership, and keeping up with the times. The UUSM website and the UUSM Newsletter are evolving together with united goals: to uplift the whole purpose of the church, and to help all groups that are agents for change be even more successful.

Check out the UUSM Newsletter site for even more news on board activities, FIA workshops, pastoral care, and more. We are a committee in transition. Please explore and use the Feedback sections to let us know what you like and find useful.
