My dearest sisters and brothers in Christ—
We are delaying our opening for worship. Our new date is Sunday, August 16, 2020.
Given the realities of COVID-19, as you can imagine, there are many protocols and restrictions we have in place, to protect everybody. It is a time for us to sacrifice some personal liberties for the sake of protecting the body of Christ.
CLICK HERE to read the official protocol that has been prepared to help us reopen safely.

We all know that Virginia was one of the longest-attending members of UC, and she was also a great servant, a peacemaker and a true God-lover. She was a spiritual mother/sister to all of us. I'm sure that like me, you can remember many of the kind, beautiful things she said and did.
God bless and keep you, dear Virginia. She is now resting in peace with Christ and his holy angels. "We believe in the resurrection of the body." We will all see Virginia again, in paradise.
Your shepherd and your brother in Christ--
My dearest friends in Christ Jesus--
Virginia Mari died on Monday afternoon. Her family has said that they will wait until July or August, to have a memorial service at UC. They know that's what Virginia wanted. God willing, circumstances will permit everyone who wants to participate in the service to do so.
