In This Moment

Sometimes, we are in control. Sometimes, we simply ride the winds of change.  No one knows what this particular Sunday will

Community Sunday featuring Center For Food Action

Each congregational year, we have three months with five Sundays.  This year, we will set aside one Sunday each of those

months to both celebrate and support a community partner.  This is an opportunity for CUC to use it’s worship time for us

to focus our collective loving kindness and sense of justice on those who share our community.  Our first Community Sunday

will feature the Center for Food Action.  We will hear from them how the pandemic has impacted hunger in Bergen County

and we will have opportunities throughout the week for each of us to directly contribute to supporting CFA’s clients.  This

Community Day helps to round out work Installation weekend by reminding us that serving our community is part of our

mission and our shared ministry together.
