Our People

I could no longer pretend there was only one path when I knew there are many paths leading to God. I believe the Creator is more inclusive than any of us can imagine. As humans, we look for the assurance of one narrow road to lead us home. Unfortunately, religion tells us the road is reserved only for those who believe and follow that specific doctrine. How can that be true for Christians and for Jews and for Muslims and for Hindis?

In UUCC, I’ve found a home that allows and welcomes my belief of “many paths lead to God”. Our Pastor, Reverend Gy, and guest pastors inspire us with stories and messages from all the major world religions. We, as a spiritual community, believe in Science, protecting our planet and all living beings, and are greatly concerned about Climate Change.

While I was not raised in a politically and socially active home, I understand that protests and rallies are often required to get the attention of the public and policymakers. UUCC is very active and intentional in aligning with change-making efforts for a more equitable and just society for all. The folks at UUCC walk the talk!

On a personal note, I have never found a more welcoming, supportive, and compassionate community. People generously serve in our sponsorship of a Refugee Congolese Family and our quarterly Generosity Sundays – collection plate is given toward a local charity.

Congregants are also empowered to use their passions and talents in any area of their choosing. I enjoy serving on the board, marketing committee, singing in the choir, and will soon be facilitating a monthly Zoom group on “Civil Conversations”.

UUCC is a place for independent thinkers searching for truth who join together to make the world a kinder place. It is the spiritual community my husband and I have chosen to call “home”.
