Members of UUCA since 1960.

“We were attracted by the ongoing peace and social justice activities. We welcome the opportunity to interact with folks of diverse cultural backgrounds and beliefs. We enjoy the intellectual and spiritual stimulation afforded by the philosophy group, the Issues Forum, the book club, the Social Justice Committee, and the monthly Program for Progressives, as well as the variety of Sunday morning services.We also enjoy the weekly international folk dancing, and singing in the choir with our dynamic music director. And it's great to have a potluck lunch with our members and friends every Sunday after our service.”
