Room In The Inn
Fri, June 28
At Black Mountain Methodist Church Annex
The next Room in the Inn will take place on Friday, June 28, 2013 at the Black Mountain Methodist church annex. UUCSV will provide all volunteers and meals for the day. Sign-up has begun. Contact Connie Krochmal or see sign-up sheet in foyer.
Sun, May 19, Noon
On Sunday, May 19, immediately following the service, we will hold our annual business meeting. At this meeting, the Board of Trustees will present two business items for congregational approval:
- You will be asked to vote for a slate of candidates who will join in service with the current Board of Trustees.
- The proposed operating budget for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
The budget is still being worked on to reflect the recent decision of the BOT to recommend another stretch. That stretch is to increase the minister’s hours for pastoral care. “Moved to amend the half time minister’s projected budget to reflect commitment to increase MC’s time to 60% with a review of financial well being before 31 Dec, 2013.”
Please make all possible efforts to attend this annual gathering of UUCSV members and participate in the Democratic Process. Our bylaws require a quorum of 20 percent of our eligible membership for any business to be transacted.

Room In The Inn
At Black Mountain Presbyterian Church Annex
UUCSV is partnering with the Black Mountain Presbyterian Church to help out with Room in the Inn to help homeless women in Buncombe County.
A maximum of 12 homeless women participate on any given night of the week around the county. They stay at each host church for a week at a time. The women sign up at AHOPE in Asheville. Those on illegal drugs or alcohol can’t participate.
UUCSV will provide the food and volunteers for the day. There is a sign up sheet in the UUCSV foyer if people wish to help out.
Town Hall Meeting and Salad Potluck
December 9, Noon
The Ministerial Transition Committee and Personnel Committee will be hosting a UUCSV Town Hall Meeting after the service on Dec. 9th. The purpose of the meeting will be to inform you about the specific job duties of Rev. Carter, in his role as our Consulting Minister. He will attend the meeting and answer your questions. Following the meeting, please join us for a Pasta Salad Potluck. There will be a large bowl of marinated pasta on the salad bar. We'd like you to contribute chopped meat, cubed cheese, diced vegetables, nuts or legumes to add to the salad bar. Do not bring any hot food. The weather may be chilly and we have no way to keep food warm outside on the portico. Think SALAD Bar!
Mark your calendars. Everyone is invited and we hope you will be able to attend this informative meeting and food fellowship.. Linda Metzner has graciously rescheduled choir practice for that day to occur before, rather than after the service on Dec. 9th.
What to bring:
- Pasta Salad Bar food item, cut into small pieces
- Serving utensil
- Your own place setting, a nice sized bowl would make it easy for you to construct and eat your salad

Our congregation and the Social Action Committee, again, will sponsor a booth at the BLURP (Blue Ridge Pride) festival.
This is a great opportunity to support the LGBTQ community and talk about UUCSV’s Welcoming Congregation at the same time. We’ll have banners, balloons and brochures for all to see. But we need YOUR help in setting up and tearing down the tent, as well as staffing the booth during the day.
