June 2022 Newsletter
Ubly Community Vacation Bible School (June 12th-16th)
The week of June 13th - 16th, Ubly area churches will come together for vacation bible school (VBS). The event is open for all children ages 4 yrs - 5th grade. We are in need of volunteers to help make this program successful. If you can't help for the entire week - that's okay. If you can volunteer only a couple of days or even one day that is still much appreciated! Please contact Austin if you're interested in serving Ubly's youth through VBS this year.
Potluck Sunday (June 26th)
On the last Sunday of each month we invite everyone to stay after worship service for great food and fellowship. You're welcome to bring a dish to pass, but never required - no one has ever left hungry!
Here at Ubly Christian Church we invite you to pray over and/or support various individuals going into challenging mission fields. On June 26th, Justin Blue will be coming to share briefly about his plans to pursue missions. See his message below:
"Hi Ubly Christian Church,
My name is Justin Blue. You may have heard, but I am interning with Cru, formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ, as a Missionary in Fresno, California.
I think you'll be encouraged to hear what God is doing in my ministry and how you can partner with me through prayer and financial support. I would love to visit with each one of you and share more. On June 26th, I will be at UCC to share a little more about myself, and what I will be doing around the different college campuses around the Fresno area. Please join me as I start my missionary training long term. Call or text me with your name at (989) 714-5107 if you would like more information, or if you would like to meet up for coffee so I can share more.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like my newsletter."

We will be taking a break from our studies the next few months. Stay posted for a few women's outings this summer.
Building Fund Challenge! (PLEASE READ!)
Our building fund collection is growing steadily and we appreciate the continued support. An anonymous supporter of UCC has issued a challenge to all church attendees. They will match all building fund donations UCC receives in the month of June up to $2,000. What a great way to double your donation and grow our building fund for our future church.
To view our current building fund progress, look at the cross posterboard on the welcome table. We are currently working on phase 1, which involves purchasing 3-5 acres of land. We are hoping to accumulate $30,000 within the next year or two and then secure a loan for the remainder. If you would like to help with this important endeavor, please put your donation in a building fund envelope (located on top the offering box at church) or select building fund on the website. Envelopes may be placed in the offiering box next to the entrance door.
