Worship Associate: Jon Palumbo
Music: Nicole Pesce
In 1894, Unitarian minister Rev. James Vila Blake wrote a covenant that became the backbone of the one said during each of UUCP’s worship services. A few years ago, Rev. Sky Williams-Tao rewrote this covenant. Why would they do that? How did they do it? Come to hear about the rewriting journey, and for lots of UU lore.

Grow Your Spiritual Garden. Come Grow With Us!
Growing Your UUCP Garden has never been more important. Now more than ever, we need the sustenance that our beloved community provides. This garden, planted by our UUCP founders, is our home and needs committed tending, especially in these troubled times. We are called to stewardship, the act of protecting and being responsible for something worth caring for and preserving. We ask you to reflect on how UUCP is a garden of community, ideology, action, and growth. What aspects of UUCP are worth not only preserving, but nurturing, for you, for the congregation, and for the community? Read more or email email@example.com.
