O’Leno Annual Retreat

O’Leno is April 30th – May 2nd. We will be doing things slightly differently this year. In order to social distance while sleeping , we will have less cabin space available.

So sign up first if you want to be included!  This year O’Leno  events will be scaled back slightly as we won’t have enough people for big  meals and we will also need to be COVID Safe. Look for more details…

Have You Ever Thought About Being a Worship Associate?

A huge thank you to our wonderful Worship Associates for March:  Penny Reid, Nancy Murrey-Settle, Blanche Williams, and Meg Rohal.  We have a dedicated cohort of WA’s, but could use a few more to add to the list.  This is a great way to serve UUCJ occasionally, and it’s interesting and fun.  We’ll provide you with training, resources—and even a script!  If you’re interested, or just have questions, please contact Penny Reid at .
