We have made a decision consistent with recommendations from Public Health officials, UUA, and local government. Our reality has shifted and we now need to err on the side of safety and social distancing in order to stem the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES HAS CREATED POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR UUCTS RESPONSE TO COVID-19. (Full COVID-19 Response Plan)

WE ARE SUSPENDING ALL IN PERSON GATHERINGS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.  If you need assistance please reach out to our Caring Committee Chair, Irene
Prosser prosseri@aol.com or Elle Wolf-Muhleck ellewolfmuhleck@gmail.com for support.

Our next step is to get clever and creative in ways to stay connected, continue to be in community, and hold steadfast to our mission. We realize that now, more than ever, we need each other’s support.

Therefore, we’re calling on our committee heads and others to figure out how best to do church now. Plans are underway to offer a virtual coffee hour (BYO Bagel and Beverage!).

If you’re interested in exploring the possibilities, please contact Kathy Hopkins by email at kathyhop@tampabay.rr.com

I speak for everyone on the Board of Trustees when I say that we’re grateful to be part of this community. Even as we struggle with unknowns, we’re confident in our congregation’s compassion and resilience.

And though we’re distancing our physical selves for a time, I know we remain connected in sprit and devoted to our common mission.

In good health,

Kathy Hopkins, President, UUCTS Board of Trustees

We’ve begun to do a lot of our interacting virtually. Our church is using the ZOOM application to video conference, chat, and share critical information. We encourage everyone to get familiar with how to use ZOOM. You won’t need to pay any fees or even sign up for an account in order to participate in meetings. You can use any device that has access to the internet such as a smart phone, personal computer, or tablet. Barbara Kostreva is standing ready to provide assistance setting up the application on your device.
