UUCJ Admin Staff is Still Here for You

The UUCJ campus and office are now closed to the public, as you all know, but Virginia (our Church Administrator) and Judy (our bookkeeper) are both working hard to make sure that our bills get paid on time, that your pledges and donations (thank youuuuu!) are processed as swiftly as possible, and that continued administrative duties are taken care of.

Caring Candles

Recently, Larissa Hinman, a former member of this church, was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, requiring surgery, chemotherapy, and possible radiation. The Hinman’s have two girls, Sophia and Saabella,  ages 11 and 8. The coronavirus is making her recovery especially difficult, and she will not be able to work for some time.

What Can You Do to Stay Healthy?

Donating to Arlington Community Services

Our donor of last resort donated 64 pounds for this week. There is concern that since we are not having Sunday Services ACS will not receive donations  when there is a great need . (The shelves were empty earlier this week.)  If…
