The UUCC Board of Trustees has lifted Covid restrictions in the church. The congregation can determine their own level of risk and any need to continue to wear a mask in public settings.
The only exception to this will be when we have in-church speakers who may request that congregants wear a mask during their service. We will notify you ahead of time if this occurs. We have also reinstated the practice of monthly Community Potlucks after service on the first Sunday of each month.
This Day in Unitarian Universalist History August 21
1811 – Henry Bergh was born. He was the son of a wealthy shipbuilder and followed in his father’s business. He became a Unitarian under the ministry of Henry Whitney Bellows in New York, and became interested in the treatment of animals, which he often saw abused on the streets. He persuaded the New York legislature to charter the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. He was elected its president and worked for that cause for the rest of his life.
