Rev. CTC's Corner
June 2017

Dear Ones,

We've been united as a community for one Intentional Interim year; and our time together is nearing its natural end.  It will officially draw to a close on July 31, 2017.  It has been challenging and meaningful sharing the past year with you.  I feel certain that we are all headed forward with open hearts and minds, and ready to take the next steps on our different spiritual journeys.

My last Sunday preaching in the pulpit will be June 18, 2017.  I will spend July physically away from UUFHC on vacation and study leave—but I will be available to you via email and phone.  I'll also pack and move out of the Minister's office in July. Your new minister will begin on August 15.

For UUFHC to enter new ground, it’s important that I am not present as you plan next steps, find new ways of being together; and welcome new visitors and members to this community. Additionally, as many of you may know, in order to clear the way for new ministerial leadership in a congregation, the UUA recommends that I not be in contact with UUFHC members for at least a full year after my departure.

Please know this: I will always hold you in my heart.  I believe that our chosen religion, Unitarian Universalism, and the UUFHC community have enriched my life. I hope the same is true for you too. I deeply respect the work we have done together, and I have no doubt that each of you and this congregation will continue to grow and prosper.

Love and Blessings.

See you in church, Rev. CTC

The Reverend Carol Thomas Cissel, Our Interim Minister

Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel

Welcome Dear Ones,

Welcome to this warm, caring, multigenerational faith community!

UUFHC is a terrific place that thrives on the meaningful participation of members and friends who represent many different walks of life, spiritual pathways, and life experiences.

Whether you have been a part of Unitarian Universalism for many years or you are a new UU, you can find your place in this Welcoming Congregation. In this loving, liberal place there are members, friends, and staff who were raised within our tradition, those who come from other faith backgrounds, and those who have never belonged to a religious community before. Join us… All Are Welcome Here!

Please join us for Sunday Morning Services and Religious Education at 10:30am. If you are not ready to attend a service, stop by after worship at 11:30am for coffee and conversation.

If you are interested, curious or seeking and want to learn more about UUFHC or the Unitarian Universalist faith—I would be more than happy to set up a time during the week to speak with you about this community and the myriad of ways that you might find a spiritual home here.

I hope that I have the chance to get to know you, and if possible your loved ones, much better… very, very soon!

Love & Blessings,


Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel
