Work on OUUC’s HVAC system will begin on Monday, April 10. That means the Sanctuary and part of the Commons will be a construction zone for a while.
This work is part of our commitment to lowering OUUC’s carbon footprint by installing energy-efficient heat pumps to replace gas furnaces. Thank you to all who contributed to the Capital Campaign that helped make this happen.
Here’s what you can expect in the next few weeks:
Sunday services will be held in the classrooms on April 16 and 23, and maybe on April 30.
The classrooms have limited seating, so if your spiritual needs can be met by participating on Zoom or YouTube we invite you to do so. We’ll have coffee and treats in the Commons and breakout rooms online after the service as usual.
The after-service events will be offered as usual, too. April 16 is Board Sunday and April 23 is Melanie Ransom’s Talk Show featuring guest, Rev. Sara Lewis.
The Thursday dinners will be held as usual.
The Commons ceiling near the doorway may look like a construction zone, but we expect the rest of the room to be fit for use.
There will be no Thursday evening spiritual practice after April 6.
We will offer after-dinner activities in the Commons for those onsite on Thursday evenings.
For those people who like an online spiritual practice, we encourage you to use the many recorded Thursday evening events we’ve offered for the past several years. You can access those on the OUUC YouTube channel.
We will update you weekly in the Tuesday update and The Spark.
We’ll also put information in the email reminders and on the website.
Other scheduled meetings will take place in the classrooms as planned.
Thank you for your patience! It will be great when it’s done!
