New Board Members 2018

TERYSON DICKERSON – TREASURER

Hello Klamath Falls UU, I am Honored to be your Treasurer. I will do my best to provide the financial information needed to expand our Fellowship.
I came from Modesto, Ca and was a member of the UU there for 11 years. I sold Scrip (Gift Cards), gathered and created groups for the Circle Dinners. I donated services for the Silent Auctions.
I moved here in November of 2017 and have been volunteering where I can while setting up my home.

DAWN ALBRIGHT – SECRETARY

I am a Native Texan, born and raised in Dallas and a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin. I worked as a newspaper reporter for several years, then as an editor at Hoover’s Online (now owned by Dun & Bradstreet), a business information publisher. Later, I was a bill analyst for the Texas Legislature and public information officer for the Texas Comptroller.

My most interesting volunteer gig was a summer in Honduras testing dairy cattle for infections. I’ve also been a Girl Scout Leader, PTA lady, and lacrosse mom. I find a lot of peace and joy in gardening. One of my favorite books: Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver.

The UU Fellowship, because I want to be around like-minded people. This photo is from Election Night 2008.

 

 

Building Beloved Community

Sunday, May 20th, 2018
We will welcome Reverend Sarah Schurr as guest speaker at our regular 10:30 am worship service.

Rev. Sarah Schurr will help us look at Martin Luther King’s ideas of Beloved Community and what might help us live into those values in our Unitarian Universalist Congregations.  We will explore what could be getting in our way, and what can help us thrive with compassion and generosity.  Rev. Sarah Schurr is our congregation’s primary contact from the Pacific Western Region of the UUA, and specializes in supporting small and growing congregations.

Special Workshop

All members and friends are invited to join Sarah after the service for a 90 minute mini-workshop to help build Beloved Community here in our Fellowship.  This is an interactive event that is thoughtful as well as fun. We will explore and honor the inherent worth and dignity of each person as we cherish our past and walk towards our future.  Everyone is welcome, including children.

Emma Marris: Nature is Everywhere

This Sunday, April 1, 2018, environmental writer Emma Marris will speak to us about finding nature everywhere. This month we explore the seventh UU principle, RESPECT FOR THE INTERDEPENDENT WEB OF ALL EXISTENCE OF WHICH WE ARE A PART.

Emma Marris’ book, Rambunctious Garden is an important read for anyone who cares about the environment.

Service begins at 10:30 at 801 Jefferson Street, upstairs. Anya will be service leader. There will be an easter egg hunt for kids at about 10:40, organized by the Episcopalians.

Circle Dinners

Circle Dinners are a monthly gathering of 6 people to share food and get acquainted. They can be a powerful tool for creating community in any sized congregation, and with the recent growth at UUFKC, it’s a great time to start this program!
Sign up by emailing Teryson. charmingn209@gmail.com  She will put you in a group with 6 other people. You can sign up with your partner if you wish, regardless of whether your partner attends UUFKC.  Deadline to Sign up is April 15
Please let Teryson know if you would be willing to be a Host. Hosts call their guests early in the month to decide who brings what. The host provides the main dish. Others bring appetizers, bread, side dishes, and dessert.
The host discusses with the group at the first dinner future dates and times. Participants learn to keep that date open. A host who wants a different date is always free to arrange it with guests.
Avoid congregational business at dinners, focusing on getting acquainted.
These dinners are a good way to bring people closer. We get to know people in ways that we cannot on Sunday morning. And it’s especially good for new people.
After meeting once a month for 6 months, participants can choose whether they’d like to participate again, and then groups will be shuffled for a new 6-month period.
Questions: contact Teryson   charmingn209@gmail.com
