The Supreme Court has ruled (June 26) that same-gender marriage can't be banned by the states. Rev. Bob Murphy, our new minister, celebrated the decision at the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly at the end of June. "This is a great victory for religious freedom," said Rev. Murphy. "Unitarian Universalist congregations have supported same-gender marriages for several decades. We now have the freedom to continue our support for same-gender couples without fear of political obstacles or legal discrimination." During the 1990s, Rev. Murphy officiated at sixteen same-gender weddings in North Carolina. 


UUCTS continues to support The Shepherd Center through donations of canned food and used clothing or household items. Please deposit donations in the basket or bin marked Shepherd Center or consider putting a dollar in the box. Monies are used to buy canned goods for The Shepherd Center food pantry.


The Shepherd Center desperately needs volunteers.  If you can sort clothes, items or food, work as a clerk in the store, provide administration help or transportation, they need you!  Contact Cathy Lawson or Irene Prosser for more information.


Hooray! Rev. Bob Murphy and Lyn Dalzell have arrived in Florida. Bob is our new minister. He will lead our congregation's Sunday service on October 4th. It is the Feast Day for Saint Francis of Assisi. Bob writes, "I'm not a Christian but I've been very impressed by Pope Francis' recent visit to Cuba and the United States. The Americas
are moving in new directions and that's good news for the whole world."

We are sorry the church is closed for sinkhole repair. The paintings are not available for viewing since the exhibit at LRMA is over, but they will return to a beautiful new home when sinkhole remediation AND rehabilitation of the historic sanctuary is complete.

Our mission statement includes the idea of promoting the arts. We have completed a series of presentations on literature, and now, during the next two months, we will be exploring music. Our beloved Music Director, Bonnie Whitehurst, returns to make the transition.
