Our building is currently closed.
COVID UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 we are currently not renting our space to outside groups until further notice.
The UCM Covid-19 Task Force has been meeting regularly to advise the Executive Team and the Board of Directors about the use of our building during the pandemic. A collective decision has been made that the church building will remain closed and there will be no services in the sanctuary until further notice.
June 15 Update: Even though the state of Vermont has removed restrictions related to Covid-19 the UCM church building will continue to be closed through the summer for activities, including rentals. Currently only the Summer Meditation group on Sundays, and the Monday and Thursday meal preparation groups may use the building.
We hope to reopen in the fall but the timing at the moment is uncertain.
