Although the Covid-19 crisis has sharply reduced our ability to interact with others face-to-face, we still can connect online. To facilitate the sharing of information, ideas, and observations, we’ve created Forum as a new channel for members.


Why Bother?

By Laurie Singer, Vice President. I have always loved decorating for Christmas.  Once  I was in my own home, it quickly became the family gathering place, most especially for the parents visiting from Buffalo, my sister and her family...a niece and nephew I couldn't love more if they were my own children, and my husband, who tried hard to be the humbug, but always ended up being the life of the party. 

Thoughts on Leadership

by Pam Collins. As president of your Board, this vantage point has given me some thoughts on leadership that I'd like to share with you... I don't think it's over-stating the case that on many levels this country is facing a crisis of leadership. There are a lot of people in positions of leadership that ought not to be, and many who should be that resist leadership roles with all their might. And there are those who step into the fray despite the chaos, the threats, the responsibility, and the inevitability of criticism no matter what they do.

When Rev. Thomas J.S. Mikelson, who died a couple weeks ago due to complications of the coronavirus, delivered his last sermon to our congregation, he was trying to help us recognize the moment that we were in. That moment was a moment of transition and change.

Separately Together: Finding the Path Forward Living our UU Values

The Back Story on Face Masks

Read how our team of talented sewers donated their time, valuable skills, and sometimes scarce supplies to take on this mammoth task of providing masks for us and our community. We are beyond proud of these wonderful ladies!

Remembering Rev. Thomas J. S. Mikelson

We are very saddened at the death of Rev. Thomas J. S. Mikelson. He is much beloved by our congregation as he was the Interim Minister who loved this young congregation through its first ministerial transition. He served us from 2012-2014.
