MONTHLY THEME:

April - Solidarity

Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world. ~ Paulo Freire

Statement of Conscience

UUCMC Statement of Conscience on Racial Justice

At the Congregational Meeting on Sunday, March 20, 2016 the Members unanimously adopted the UUCMC​ ​Statement of Conscience on Racial Justice. The Statement was created by members of the Congregation's Racial Justice Task Force​, Ann Sherwood and Libby Schoenwolf and chaired by Aimee VanDuyne. Reverend Virginia Jarocha Ernst applauded the members. "Adoption of this statement allows us to speak in one voice against racism and acts of bigotry," Rev. Virginia said, "and be more active in the community outside of our walls. This is especially crucial at a time when a voice of love and justice is so needed."
