Tubman University builds chairs with gifts from Community UCC

During a Mission Moment earlier this year, Elizabeth Davis-Russell, on behalf of the Mission and Social Justice Team, made an appeal for funds to acquire classroom chairs for Tubman University, which is expanding its enrollment.

The congregation raised $1,030, which was sent to Tubman University. Instead of purchasing ready-made chairs, the university administration used its established Wood Technology program to have chairs made, thus expanding the number of chairs it could acquire. Below are pictures of the work being done, making 50 chairs.

Saturday Breakfast Group to meet Jan. 12

Mark your calendars for the next meeting of the Saturday Breakfast Group at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, in the Conference Room. Elizabeth Davis Russell will talk about her experiences as the founder of a university in Liberia. EJ Hinojosa will furnish breakfast.

Usually, the group will meet on the first Saturday of each month, but we shifted the January meeting since some people might still be traveling or on vacation for the holidays on the first Saturday in January. Contact Phil Fullerton to learn more.
