Happy Blossoming!

by Wendy Stasolla, President, UUCWC Board of Trustees

As gardens around us begin to bloom, our beloved community is also poised for a blossoming as our long-awaited construction project is finally coming to fruition. After more than a few winters of waiting, we are closer than ever to our long-anticipated new beginnings.

What began with small meetings eight years ago to envision what kind of building improvements would be meaningful for our community and mission is being realized in ways that include the original dreams and more current visions of who we are and where we might go.

For this, we give thanks to our tireless capital campaign team, and to Rev. Kim who has thoughtfully and confidently led us through the difficulties and unknowns during her soon-to-be ten years with us. Who can believe that it’s been that long since we called Kim to our pulpit in May of 2014!

And now we will again be dreaming together to envision ways of using our new space, and discovering who we are as a congregation in this post-pandemic time of reflection. We have welcomed many new faces over the course of this project and it’s time to blend their voices with those who have been along from the very beginning.

All of you, members, friends, and participants, whether fully remote or in-person, are the foundation and the building blocks of our beloved church. In place of the postponed small group meetings, members of the Board of Trustees invite you to spend some time with one of us after a service to share your thoughts and hear our excitement about what lies ahead.
