Church Website Content
You will find completely new content on the Church Website: www.unitedchurch.us. David Hearne has done the design and creation work. We thank him profusely for the extraordinary amount of time he has put into this work.
A committee of three, Fred Marin, Sandra Russo, and Bob Kottkamp, is working with David to make revisions, add new content, open new pages over time, and keep the site current. New elements include a calendar displaying regular meetings and special events and a prayer request page for you to leave information about those in need of support.
Please make use of this new communication tool. Please send suggestions for edits and additions. You can do so by using the Contact Form on the website!
Church Back Door
At its last meeting, the Executive Board made the decision that only the front door will be open when our secretary, Sandra Russo, is in the office during her regular hours on Wednesday and Friday. This new practice provides greater security for Sandra and the church as a whole. Those with back door keys....if you enter that door on Wednesday or Friday afternoon, please stop by the office to let Sandra know that you are in the building. Thank You.
