UUCC member Carlos Peredo offers free lessons in Tai Chuan Do Karate on Friday evenings. This martial art blends traditional techniques and philosophy with the latest innovations in self defense. All classes are free of charge. All students age 10 and up are welcome, with flexibility for younger students if an adult enrolls with them. Classes are held on Fridays from 7:00 to 9:00 in the evening in room 150. For more information, feel free to join us at class or contact Carlos Peredo.
The UUCC Board of Trustees meets on Wednesday evening, April 26 at 7:00pm at the Owen Brown Interfaith Center.
At its March 21 meeting, the Board:
- Approved the consent agenda (including the February meeting minutes, which may be reviewed here).
- Revised Endowment Board disbursement policy to clarify how the target percentage may be changed.
- Made a commitment to fully fund the full-time Assistant Minister position so that the Executive Team may proceed with the hiring process as established by the Board at its February meeting.
- Chose to pay its own unemployment benefits, as there is no mechanism for a church to do so through the State of Maryland.

Save the date! UUCC's Animal Ministry, 'Creature Connection', will again host its annual spring fair - the 5th Annual Pat Fort Memorial Animal Fair - on Saturday, May 20th, 10am-1pm, on the OBIC grounds. All are welcome and we invite you to bring along your friends and neighbors to this always fun, family-friendly event!
A few of the details remain to be worked out but expect to meet service dogs, rescued rabbits, farm animals and wildlife, as well as people from a variety of animal welfare and rescue organizations. We'll have face painting and games for all ages, delicious snacks and entertainment - maybe even a few surprises! Definitely a lot of fun packed into 3 hours.
Watch for more details, and do plan to come and enjoy yourself!
NOTE: This will be a rain or shine event, AND, as in past years, we ask that you leave your family pet at home out of respect for our guest organizations with animals. Thank you!
