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 July 28

1703 – George de Benneville was born in London, England, to French Huguenot parents. He converted to Universalism early in life and became an itinerant preacher in France, where he was arrested and condemned to death. He was brought before the guillotine but King Louis XV granted him a reprieve at the last moment. After preaching in Germany and Holland and being imprisoned there, de Benneville came to America and became the first preacher of Universalism in the New World.
