Note from Financial Secretary: 2018 Contribution Statements

Last Sunday, we emailed individual 2018 “Pledge Statements” showing contributions for all of calendar year 2018, to the email address of everyone who made a contribution to the church in 2018. 

If you received the email and you see an error, please reply to the email with the correct information so that we can correct our records.

If you did not receive the email, we do not have your email address in our PowerChurch software. If you would like a 2018 contributions statement, email your request to and I will email you the statement.

Any time you have a question about your pledge or a contribution, you can email the financial secretary at and we will check our records and respond by email.

Note the UUSP fiscal year (and the pledge year) is July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019, so contributions made during calendar year 2018 may fall into both the current fiscal year (2018-2019) and the prior fiscal year (2017-2018).


Thank you!
Rebecca Wilson, Financial Secretary
Dani Skrzypek, Assistant Financial Secretary

Facilities Planning Project

Our historic 1929 sanctuary and fellowship hall and 1967 education building have the capacity and potential to support our growing congregation for many years, providing a home for our individual and collective spiritual growth, and our community outreach.  But our facilities suffer from deferred maintenance, aging building systems and under- utilization of space.
We’ve started a process to evaluate the condition of our facilities, assess our long-term needs, identify priorities and develop a long-range facilities plan.  It is time to move to a proactive and fiscally sustainable approach to facilities maintenance, reduce long-term costs and increase revenue.
We’re working with committee chairs, staff and the board and will be engaging the congregation in conversations as the process moves forward.  We need your help!  

If you have experience or professional expertise in architecture, construction services, historic rehab, interior design or facilities management OR would like to comment on long-term facilities needs, please contact Sharon Winters at or Randy Nolan at


Thank you!

Parking Lot Update

After months of delays by the City in issuing permits, Wannemacher Jensen Architects (WJA) is ready to begin work on the new parking lot across the alley before the end of January. Removal of some trees and installation of new electric poles will be first. During construction UUSP members may park in the county parking lot across the street, which is many times larger than ours, during evenings and on weekends. The construction is expected to last a couple of months. Regular updates will be provided. 

Please contact Paul Burnore at with any questions.
