Reaching out to build community near and far


Hosting the Heart and Home shelter brought the first challenge last year to emerge stronger together.

To enrich our worship, Rev. Dan, Choir Director Bruce, and Rev. Amy learned video production skills. Bruce added visuals to choir recordings. Each week Rev. Dan produced a wise and funny

Through nonpartisan letter writing and phone calls, church members aided the nation-wide get-out-the-vote campaign.

Creating new ways of gathering

Since March, services have continued from a variety of locations via Zoom, thanks to a dedicated group of staff and volunteers.

Addressing uncertainties with finances

The year 2020 had financial impact never seen before. The COVID-19 shutdown in March halted campus activities. We felt a drastic loss of rental income. Even so we met commitments to our whole staff. We are grateful for your support and for the Paycheck Protection Program.

Even as the pandemic eases, challenges for the 2021-2022 fiscal year remain. Your support makes a difference:

  • Supports our staff and maintain facilities.
  • Allows for outreach to more people.
  • Builds community through new and existing programming.

With so many uncertainties (including a possible $80K deficit for fiscal 2021-2022), we are not setting a pledge drive goal like previous years. We understand that you too may be facing a similar challenge. We ask you to do the best you can to support our community, and together we will emerge stronger.

Working toward future goals

Our Welcoming Congregation Renewal moves full speed ahead, inspiring us to cordially welcome the LGBTQIA+ community.

Our Unitarian Universalist Asso-ciation and our nation continue to grapple with subtle and overt forms of racism. Sunday services, religious education, and social justice activities continue to encourage us to live up to our heritage as a liberal faith.

Our Green Sanctuary Committee with the board guides us toward carbon neutrality and reduction of use of disposable plastics.

“I am deeply grateful for the environmental commitment of this church that established the EV charging station, my first exposure to UUCPA. This led my way to joining the church and membership in the UUCPA Choir, the Adult Religious Education Committee, and a supportive women’s group. UUCPA has challenged me intellectually, nourished my deepest need for service to others, immersed me in a caring supportive community, and provided a path for ongoing spiritual growth. I am profoundly grateful to be a part of this church community and for that electric charging station that initiated my UUCPA journey.”
