WSUU Kicks off our Capital Campaign!


We still have no news on the church building that we're trying to buy.....but we did kick off the capital campaign this week.

It was a ton of fun! I've posted the first part of the morning. Most of the congregation had no idea what was going to happen! After singing the grown ups out we had a mock up of what the church might look like; chalice filled stained glass windows on the walls, chairs lined up like the pews, and at the front--a board meeting in the year 2035! Tons of fun! But, it was dark and so we got kind of iffy video.....maybe we'll just have to post it later anyway, the kids were so great. Big thanks to all the families involved and to the Minister of Music at Minnesota Valley UU Fellowship, Sonja Johnston, for permission to use the original "Need a Bigger Building".




Class in the bathroom

Class in the cold dark basement—with no windows there

Class in the closets

We’ve grown so much that we can’t fit another kid in….


Yes we need a bigger building

Right this very minute

Need a bigger building

A church home of our own

Oh yes we need a bigger building

Windows—kitchen—classrooms

We know church is about the people

Man we sure could use a steeple


Host family promise

Host some crucial vital town hall forums and

Feed homeless children, we’ll build a school and then we’ll

Change the whole world right here!


Yes we need a bigger building

Right this very minute

Need a bigger building

A church home of our own

Oh yes we need a bigger building

Windows—kitchen—classrooms

Need a bigger building now!

Home of our own!

Home of our own!

Home of our own!

Home of our own!
