••• In-person TUESDAY Nov. 30: What Do Those in Spirit Want to Be Remembered For? •••
For the in-person Mediumship Class on Tuesday, Nov. 30, we will work on exercises to connect to those in spirit and ask them what they want to be most remembered for. Let us connect to those in spirit in a deeper way so they are able to express what they perhaps have truly never expressed fully.
The in-person Mediumship Class begins at 7:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Stony Brook (UUFSB) in East Setauket so try to arrive by 7:15 pm. You need to wear a mask for this class. Please let me know if you are coming for the first time:
This class meets at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Stony Brook in Setauket, 380 Nichols Rd, in rooms 3 and 4 of their Religious Education wing. The class is open to all levels of abilities and experience. You will need to wear a face mask and sign in with your name, email address, and phone number at class.

We are asking for love donations at this time during our online church services to support our work and to allow us to continue through these troubling times. We are not meeting in person so can't pass around the offering plate to help us with ongoing operating expenses that need to be paid: partial rent, full insurance, Zoom fees, payment to the national organization, to name a few.
Scroll to 'Online Church Service'.

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Join the movement and give – each Tuesday and every day – whether it’s some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice in your local community. It’s a simple idea: whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give. https://www.givingtuesday.org/
The Summerland Board has finally decided on having in-person services once a month. We are proceeding cautiously due to the uptick of Delta variant cases and now have a date for our return to UUFSB for an in-person service: December 4*. Everyone will need to wear facemasks and follow 6 feet of separation. Complete protocols for in-person activities will be emailed to all on our list. We will be streaming the service so people at home can view. Keep safe, one and all.
* Note that our monthly services will not always be on the first Saturday of the month. The in-person service for January 2022 will be on January 15.
Saturday December 4
First In-Person Service since March 14, 2020
Once a month we will be holding in-person services at UUFSB in East Setauket.
We are excited that we will be returning to UUFSB for an in-person church service on December 4.
The last time we had an in-person service here was in March 2020.
Attached below are the "Covid-19 Protocols for Building Use" and "Covid-19 Health Screening Form for Groups."
Please read both documents carefully.
If you come to our in-person service, you will be greeted by a church greeter, who will ask you to add your name and phone number to the health screening form.
You must wear a face mask at all times inside the building. We will have extra face masks and hand sanitizer available.
We will be playing two songs or hymns during but no singing will be allowed.
There will not be hands-on healing. The healers will direct their healing to those present in the room.
Please let us know if you plan to attend the service in person on December 4 so we can an idea of how many chairs we need to put out in advance. firstname.lastname@example.org
The chairs will be spaced apart, the windows will be opened slightly for air circulation, and there will be hand sanitizer available.
Please help us to make our in-person services as wonderful as before as we carefully move toward in-person services and events at our church space.

Message Circle directly after service
Saturday January 15, 2022
We would like to thank the Revs. Stacy Kopchinski Schuerman and Lelia Cutler for separately serving our church the previous two services and offering workshops. Their Spiritual Addresses were inspirational, their message work was evidential, and their workshops on Inspirational Writing and Spirit Guides were perfectly presented.
In peace and harmony,
