In these cold mid-winter months, let’s gather together to warm our hearts with the gifts and talents of some of our congregation and receive music and poetry for our souls. The participants were asked to choose pieces that spoke to them, including poetry that was written by our own Ashlynn Kercher. To continue our time together in music, song, and poetry, during our second hour classes, we will have an “Open Mic”  for those who would like to share one of their talents. 

Our Second-Hour Classes for January 26th

Important! Please Read!

We have been experiencing a growing issue with peanut residue in the building, especially in the library.  Please, do not bring peanut products into the building, and if your little ones enjoy their peanut butter snacks before coming, please be sure their hands are clean before they touch surfaces used by everyone.  We are seeing almost daily allergic reactions, so we ask you to please be diligent. It may be an inconvenience to you, but it can be life-threatening to those who are allergic.

The UUA is committed to the goal of making GA accessible to as many attendees as possible. Go to to learn about scholarships to support participation – particularly of those from marginalized groups – and volunteer opportunities (work in exchange for registration). The UUA is committed to addressing the inclusion of all people, whatever their abilities might be, in all GA activities. Beyond the physical accessibility of the facilities we use – ramps, captioning, seating cut-outs, etc.- we endeavor to take the next step: to truly welcome people with disabilities into every facet of GA.
