A GREAT VICTORY

The Supreme Court has ruled (June 26) that same-gender marriage can't be banned by the states. Rev. Bob Murphy, our new minister, celebrated the decision at the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly at the end of June. "This is a great victory for religious freedom," said Rev. Murphy. "Unitarian Universalist congregations have supported same-gender marriages for several decades. We now have the freedom to continue our support for same-gender couples without fear of political obstacles or legal discrimination." During the 1990s, Rev. Murphy officiated at sixteen same-gender weddings in North Carolina. 

SHEPHERD CENTER

UUCTS continues to support The Shepherd Center through donations of canned food and used clothing or household items. Please deposit donations in the basket or bin marked Shepherd Center or consider putting a dollar in the box. Monies are used to buy canned goods for The Shepherd Center food pantry.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The Shepherd Center desperately needs volunteers.  If you can sort clothes, items or food, work as a clerk in the store, provide administration help or transportation, they need you!  Contact Cathy Lawson or Irene Prosser for more information.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Rev. Robert Murphy has accepted our offer to become our new minister.   Rev. Murphy will complete his tenure as minister of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Falmouth,  Mass. over the next 90 days. After he says goodbye to Cape Cod, Bob and his wife Lyn will make their move to our community. We’ll welcome him to our church sometime in September.

We are sorry the church is closed for sinkhole repair.

PROMOTING THE ARTS
Our mission statement includes the idea of promoting the arts. We have completed a series of presentations on literature, and now, during the next two months, we will be exploring music. Our beloved Music Director, Bonnie Whitehurst, returns to make the transition.
