Solar Panel Success. Elon Community Church UCC recently undertook a challenge – to raise money to add 60 solar panels to the 20 we already have on the roof of our Community Life Center. A year earlier, Gary and Jane Smith of Community UCC in Raleigh had shared their successful fund-raising strategies with us. These included appeals on social media and in church newsletters and emails, weekly advocacy during worship, and a children's banner depicting panels as money was raised. We created a fund-raising site at www.mightycause.com/story/Suncatchers. We added elements such as an online auction and a silent auction coupled with an Earth Sunday potluck lunch and celebration. It was great fun! We exceeded our fund-raising goal and did it ahead of schedule! The panels are to be installed this summer and dedicated by fall. We will also apply to Duke Energy for the rebate they offer to nonprofits. For more information, email David Andes at firstname.lastname@example.org.

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. - The annual Walter E. Ashley Memorial Lecture Series hosted by First Congregational Church returns June 8 and 9 with the Rev. Otis Moss III (Ph.D.), a United Church of Christ minister, author, speaker and activist. The weekend begins on Friday, June 8, at 7:00 pm and continues on Saturday, June 9, 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. A noon lunch is available. Prices are $25 for each lecture and/or $75 for all three lectures plus Saturday lunch.
Rev. Moss is part of a new generation of ministers committed to preaching a prophetic message of love and justice, which he believes are inseparable companions that form the foundation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As Senior Pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, IL, Rev. Moss has spent the last two decades practicing and preaching a theology that unapologetically calls attention to the problems of mass incarceration, environmental injustice, and economic inequality.
