Update From Roof Communication Team
The  roof replacement project was to begin this week. Weather this past June set-back our contractor (and a lot of others) on their projects, so they're finishing those now and will begin ours soon, sometime after Monday,  August 21. The repairs done this spring are holding very well, even with some fierce storms pummeling the roof with floods of water (the same storms that have delayed our contractor). The date for beginning the project will be published when it has been determined.  Roof Communication Team: Sue Ames, Tim Farnum, Ken Buckle.
Upcoming Events & News
The Pastoral Care Team Needs Your Help!

This group of dedicated individuals support the Pastoral Care ministry of our church by visiting and supporting other members. Through our compassion we serve needs greater than our own. If you can offer your time and your heart, please contact Rev. Tina Simson at tsimson@rochesterunitarian.org.
