President’s Message


Welcoming Spring, New Faces, and a Refreshed NCUU Landscape

As Spring 2023 approaches, we should celebrate the reinvigoration and enlightenment of NCUU. Several new members and friends have joined us and brought with them stimulating new perspectives and backgrounds.

Our Sunday Service Committee has done an outstanding job of attracting talented and engaging speakers. The new grounds committee and its energetic team of gardeners, led by Chas Anderson, have done an admirable job of beautifying our grounds, and more initiatives are on the way. The Friday Mindfulness Meditation group is more active than ever and is growing by the week. All are invited to join. And our Social Justice Committee has successfully reached out to our local community on several fronts with energetic leadership from Linda Myers. This energy will be carried forward in the upcoming fiscal year by the new chair, Art Jones.

In the coming months, we expect to pursue new ministry initiatives utilizing the generous bequest from the late Rev. Mary Louise de Wolf. I urge all who can do so to attend the NCUU Annual Meeting on April 16. New Board of Directors candidates and some new initiatives will be mailed to you on a ballot. The items will be discussed at the meeting.
