Presence in the Midst of Crisis
Rev. Meredith Garmon

Our presence is a fundamental offering. A person aligned with their purpose, who has integrity and wholeness, creates a presence that ripples out through the world. It reassures and empowers others. It changes the world.

Share Your Stories
for RE Sunday
The RE team is collecting stories from our children, youth and volunteers for RE Sunday on June 21st.
Below are three questions - you may respond to one, two or all three. Along with each response, please let us know the name of the person responding and their grade in school or role as an adult volunteer.


Click HERE to respond or e-mail your responses to Tracy (CUUCWPTracy@gmail.com). 

If you would like to submit a video response to be included in a video compilation for RE Sunday, follow these steps:
  1. Record responses to *each question separately* to facilitate editing videos together.
  2. Record in landscape, not portrait (sideways, not up and down).
  3. Set your device to record in high resolution.
  4. Have a light source behind your phone/computer facing you so we see your face clearly.
  5. Upload the original, high resolution videos to Google Drive or another sharing service and share it with Tracy (CUUCWPTracy@gmail.com) by June 15th (sooner is appreciated).
Note: videos will be public when the worship service is posted on our YouTube channel.
Thank you for participating! 
Celebrating Our
Graduating Seniors 
One of the gifts we will give our Bridgers (graduating seniors) this year is a UU hymnal with beloved music and words of our faith.
If we were meeting in the building, we would make hymnals available in the Sundays leading up to our Bridging ceremony so you could write in them. This year, given our circumstances, we invite you to submit notes online, which we will put in the youth's hymnal.  We have 4 youth Bridging: Evan Cacchione, Niall Ryan, Oliver Schwartz, Aiden Breneman-Pennas. Click HERE to submit notes of congratulation and encouragement. We are celebrating Bridging Sunday, June 21st.
