We proudly proclaim that we are a welcoming congregation, open and affirming of all sorts of human diversities. But like many UU congregations, we are not as diverse a community as we could be.

The UUCM choir will be singing this morning. Visitors are welcome. For more information call 274-1675 or visit Sunday services, childcare and youth religious education begin at 11 a.m. at 246 So.
