Childcare support will be provided to keep young folks busy and engaged. We strongly encourage you to RSVP here so that we have enough food, can send you reminders, and any updates like weather contingencies. (Rain date: 6/23 in the churchyard) Questions can be sent to

All Ages Camping Weekend - Stay overnight or be a day visitor!

Kettle Pond State Park in Groton State Forest ~ July 8-10th

Enjoy the peaceful call of the loons at night after a fun evening around a campfire?  Register today to have your own lean-to within our pre-reserved group sites. 11 lean-to’s total. Activities like ukelele lessons and an informal worship service with Rev. Joan and others will be options for either day visitors or those staying all weekend.

Summer Fun at 

Wrightsville Reservoir

Sunday August 14, 11:30-2pm

Families with children and youth, and LSE volunteers are invited for a day at the beach at Wrightsville Reservoir. We’ve reserved the small shelter and there is lots of space to spread out on the beach. Bring a picnic if you’d like (grills available). We’re hoping to offer a youth-led disc golf and/or a nature walk on the trails. Our group rate includes Boat Rentals at 25% off, and Disc Golf is only $1.00 extra. 

Please fill out this form to register.  (It will help us keep you updated of any changes, AND send you a reminder email.) 

Summer reading at UCM

The Lifespan Spiritual Exploration library has great books on a variety of topics for All Ages–spiritual practices, UU history, gender, environment, antiracism, death, meditations, etc.  Picture books and middle level readers too.  Currently located in the School St. entryway and available whenever the building is open (Sunday meditation gatherings). You can ring the doorbell to see if anyone is in during the week, or call the office and set-up a time when someone will definitely be there.  Try to just have a book out for 3-4 weeks (use the sign-out sheet please). Enjoy your summer reading!

Music/Choir Update

UCM Summer Drop-in Choir!

 4 Thursdays.  July 14th:  3:30-5:00 pm.    July 28th, August 4th and August 11th.      6:30-8:00 pm.

All ages and abilities welcome! Come to a single session, or all of them!

For past and present choir members, and anyone who likes to sing with others.  No commitment or music reading ability necessary.


During the first half of each session we will learn and sing satisfying, easy to learn multi-part songs that don’t require music reading skills. 

During the second half of each session we will explore music that we possibly might sing during the church year. 

We might also learn something to sing at our Vespers services on July 15th and August 12th.

All of it will be informal and low-key. 

You are welcome to attend just the first part of the rehearsal or the whole thing. 


We will plan to meet in the vestry at the church, but might possibly sometimes meet outdoors, at a location to be determined.  Check the UCM calendar for updates on location, or contact Director of Music Donia Prince with any questions at
