What’s Up with Environmental Justice in Our Congregation?
Sunday, May 30, 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM

Drop in any time during this coffee hour breakout for 10 minutes, 20 minutes, or longer to find out: What is this Drawdown Eco-challenge, and why? What about solar panels for our building? What next? We look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas as well. We can even do some online parallel play with the Eco-challenge!  We’re all in this together. Just stay on Zoom following worship service.

Monthly BIPOC Worship Service Schedule: Please mark your calendar!

A monthly schedule has been set for BIPOC worship services, on the second Saturday of each month, at 5:30 PM, and they will be followed immediately by social time. Please note that, accordingly, the June BIPOC worship service will take place on June 12, instead of the previously scheduled date of June 5. On June 12, Rev. Jen Simon will be the guest worship leader.

As a reminder, those with the lived experience of being Black, Indigenous, a person of color, or a person of mixed race, are invited to attend BIPOC Worship Services, along with spouses, children, and chosen family of any race. To attend, you must have been invited by a BIPOC or mixed race person. If you have any question about the BIPOC worship, please contact the Journey Toward Wholeness Antiracism Transformation Team at

A Message from Jeffrey Melcher

I am delighted to help FUCO with its summer worship as a temporary-staff Worship Coordinator. This is not my first rodeo working with a UU congregation. I have had eight  staff roles in five UU organizations including: Youth Advisor, Program Director, Ministerial Intern, Wedding Officiant, UULM Field Organizer, and DRE. If you are interested in being part of Summer worship or have a question/comment, please drop me a line at
