March 16, 2020 - UPDATE

UUCA staff is meeting daily to plan and coordinate how we will continue to be in community during this extraordinary time. With changes happening so quickly, we strive to keep you updated and connected by issuing what we hope to be daily updates. Please know that UUCA keeps the health and wellbeing of our congregants in the forefront of every decision we make.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Our building and offices remain closed until further notice. Staff is working from home.

Until further notice, Sunday worship service will be streamed each Sunday at 10:15 a.m. There will be no gathering at the church and only one service. 

This Sunday, March 22, Rev. Terasa gives her “Question Box” sermon. You can still submit your questions about Unitarian Universalism, UUCA or just religious questions in general. And, yes, you can ask about this extraordinary time we are in. Please submit questions in advance to tcooley@uucava.org or submit questions on our Facebook Group page (Note: You need to join the Facebook UUCA Group if not already a member). You can also submit questions in realtime on Sunday morning via Facebook Live. 

In case you missed yesterday's incredible service , here is the link . And, NPR included UUCA in a story about faith communities grappling with adapting Sunday worship. Listen and/or read it here. 

Many of you noticed we did not do an offering this past Sunday and asked about making pledges and donations . You are a generous and compassionate community! Thank you! Pledges and donations can be made online here and checks can be mailed to UUCA, 4444 Arlington Blvd., Arlington, VA 22204. 

Several church groups are already meeting via Zoom and other online platforms . If your group needs help in setting up a Zoom meeting, please contact Tamara Srader , tsrader@uucava.org or Annie Parker , aparker@uucava.org . Staff will be reaching out to all the groups to support their community in this way.
