M'Ella House- UUCF has a dedicated group who are involved with our outreach to the children and mothers at M'Ella House, a local program for mothers with addictions. But....we need more volunteers! Please consider becoming a part of our team. Besides our monthly birthday parties and other efforts, we want to implement a pre-kindergarten readiness program that will provide specific instruction each week to the 4-year-olds in the program.

Message to Congregation


All contributions made to UUCF should be clearly noted what they are intended for.  If an unmarked contribution is received and there is a pledge-of-record, the amount will be applied to the pledge.  Any contributions made without proper identification will be listed as a “non-pledge” contribution.  Unless otherwise indicated, the date of the pledge contribution will indicate the pledge year contribution is applied to.
