FUUFHC’s 2022 Spring Fundraiser: May 21

RSVP here!

On Saturday, May 21, FUUFHC’s “Spring Reunion: Together Again” is planned to be a truly family-friendly combination of some of our favorite and most successful fundraising efforts.

Our Spring Reunion: Together Again fundraising event will be administered through Clickbid, our auction software.  While using cell hot spots, all bidders will need the use of a Smartphone during the event. The use of clickbid will be necessary for all bidding on Live & Silent Auction items, and Sign Up events.  Please buy your tickets and register your smartphone using this Clickbid ticket link [https://fuufhc.cbo.io/]. The suggested ticket price for those age 12 and above is $30. Children under 12 are free. In the spirit of fundraising though, feel free to pay more if you like. In the spirit of inclusion, pay less if you like; just participate! Can’t make the event? Regrets donations are gladly accepted as well.

The Auction bidding will be live and open for advance & proxy bidding on Wed, May 18th. Anyone can participate in the Auction! Whether at the event or from home! Bidders who plan to attend in person and those who are bidding from home can set their proxy bids, maximum bids on items, and some may even want to go ahead and buy now on an item or two to ensure they are the item winner! Guests are encouraged to register their device to their profile early so as to be prepared for the event.

Guests are encouraged to also have a bit of cash on hand for the purchase of additional game or Door Prize tickets, the Bar and Wine Toss, along with the handmade items offered at the Maker’s Corner for cash and carry sales.

Please contact Janice & Dorian at fuufhcfundraising@hunterdonuu.org with your donation submissions of silent and live auction items, hand crafted items for the Maker’s Corner, and/or wine for the Wine Pull and any and all offers to volunteer to help.

Summer Services: Removing the Barriers–Opening Up

During the summer we move out of the Old Stone Church and into the cooler Dodd Hall annex for services framed around discussion topics.

We invite a speaker to introduce/demonstrate the topic for about 10 minutes and then the speaker and service coordinator facilitate discussion. Afterward, we share coffee and fellowship.

Topics for this summer might include: Sharing Personal Stories of Self Discovery, Sharing Your Heritage, Sharing Stories about Something that Makes You Proud, Sharing a Comfort, a Joy, a Grief, and a Sorrow (& comfort food to share if you’d like), or Sharing your Spiritual Journey.

We invite you to contribute your ideas and thoughts about the topics you’d like to discuss this summer! Please contact Cara S. from the Sunday Service Committee.

Help Wanted for Coffee Hour: Ongoing

We’re excited to announce the return of in-person coffee hour! For March, coffee hour will be held “weather permitting” with coffee and snacks served inside Dodd Hall, and members asked to eat, drink and socialize outside.

We hope to allow eating, drinking, and socializing in Dodd Hall in April if it’s safe. Please remember that food and open drinks are not permitted in the sanctuary.

We seek volunteers to run coffee hour and/or bring snacks each Sunday. If you are willing to do so, please signup here.
