Black Lives Matter!

No More Killing!

We’re sure you’ve been watching the news of the latest police brutality with grief and rage. Our Black neighbors, friends, and family members have been asking us to dismantle racism in ourselves for a long time. After demonstrations in Minneapolis, the police officer who murdered George Floyd has been arrested and is being charged more seriously. Protests work! We saw a lot of you at recent “No More Killing” vigils sponsored by CVUUS and Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) congregating at Middlebury’s College Park to say NO to police brutality.  Others attended protests in Rutland, Burlington, Montpelier, Vergennes.

COVID 19 POLICY: Our Buildings Are Closed to Public Use

CVUUS will adhere to VT Governor Scott’s executive order when determining whether and how CVUUS facilities will be used.  Our buildings will remain closed to public use. Our worship service and committee meetings are conducted online. Staff are starting to resume on site hours, following CDC safety guidelines. Everyone who enters the property is responsible for washing hands on arrival and departure, wearing a facial covering when in the presence of others, using the cleaning supplies on hand to disinfect what they touch, and staying 6 feet away from anyone they encounter, not coming on site if sick, and logging in on a time sheet so that we can track activity. Anyone using CVUUS grounds or buildings MUST get clearance and schedule ahead of time with Laura. Read More about “COVID 19 POLICY: Our Buildings Are Closed to Public Use”

From the Minister

May those of you who need relief from the pressures of pandemic life

 find it this summer;

May those who need help in this search find that help.
(Hint: it could come from anywhere)

May those of you grieving all you have lost or indefinitely postponed this year

know nothing is wrong with you;

May those alienated from your grief find help in locating and embracing it;

(Hint: it could come at any time)

May those of you who have cause for gratitude take joy in that blessing; Read More about “From the Minister”
