“Dear UCC family,

At this time of year, I always look back and remember how much I appreciate your love and support.  You provide strength and comfort for many.

The church brings together people who want to help each other and the community, and UCC is doing a wonderful job of both. Even when this may seem a difficult time for our nation and its people, we must all continue to move forward.  For as Margaret Mead reminded us, “Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world.  For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.”

May your holidays be full of warmth and kindness, 
Billie Meyers
