"How Will Churches Survive the Pandemic?"
The Rev. Suzelle Lynch

Pressure from the COVID-19 pandemic is everywhere – on small businesses, on food producers and providers, transportation companies, and especially on our healthcare systems and personnel. And its impact on our communities of color – especially women of color - cannot be underestimated. But how are churches and other religious communities doing? Let’s explore together.

"Where We Meet (Real Change Happens)"
UUCW Pledge Drive Service
with Rev. Suzelle Lynch

At UUCW, we often say that every member of our congregation shapes the community we all share. As we bring our gifts and our needs to the church, it changes, and we change too. This on-going process of creation and change is spiritual and practical; it’s the result of our kinship, our relationship as dancers in the same pattern, stars in a constellation, cells within a living being – and it’s worth celebrating!
Come as you are - leave inspired!
