What's happening at the UUCG?
May 6th - May 13th, 2019
PARDON OUR MESS!! The roof replacement project is scheduled to begin Monday, May 7th. You will have to maneuver around a dumpster for a brief period of time, but the roof will be finished in about a week. As a result, you may see this still in place during the second Sunday service in May. In order to be respectful of continuing group activities at the church, we do not have a complete block of time to get this completed as quickly as we would have hoped, so your patience is greatly appreciated. Many of you may expect this to be done in a day or two, but that will not be happening. If you have any questions, please contact the church office and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We will let you know once the task has been completed. I would suggest to call first, if you need to visit the office, as staff may or may not be on site during the process. In advance, thank you for your patience!
Julie Miller, President BOT
