We are pleased to announce three award recipients of our 2015 Spring Call. The committee for the Regional Chalice Lighter program met via conference call to consider six applications. The committee is comprised of representatives from all three of the former districts. The committee is issuing this call to all who are signed up to be Chalice Lighters across the region. We hope that you will generously support the following congregations:
We thank you for your support of the growth of Unitarian Universalism in the Midwest! Please see page 2 of this letter for more information on how to contribute and how to support the Chalice Lighter program in your congregation.
If your congregation does not have a Chalice Lighter Ambassador, please let us know (email Dori Thexton – firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can work with your leaders to recruit and support someone to be an Ambassador.
For this Spring Call, please make an online donation or send in your check by June 15, 2015.
You can make the check out to MidAmerica Region, with a note “Chalice Lighters Spring 2015 Call” in the memo line and mail it to:

Lastly, we are hoping to move most Chalice Lighter notifications and donations to our online system, so please consider switching to use the online system if you are not currently using it.
