1. President’s report
2. Reports from UUCOC Ministries and Committees
3. The proposed change to the UUCOC bylaws


Information regarding financial contributions and/or pledges shall be known only to the Treasurer and the Chairperson of the Ministry of Finance. Contributions of record from any member of a household shall be deemed contributions from all members of that household who are members themselves.

Remove Article III, Section 2 from the bylaws. Instead, this subject will be addressed under UUCOC Policies and Procedure as follows.

Information regarding pledges and financial contributions shall be incorporated into the church management software. The church software administrator shall be responsible for making sure that access to member financial information is correctly assigned to, and limited to, the church bookkeeper and the currently serving Treasurer.

The jam will start at 5 pm and end around 7 pm. Admission is FREE!!!

Players bring your instruments of choice, voice, and your Real Books (Hal Leonard 6th edition VOL I & II) and join in with the fun. If you want to try something newly written, bring it along as well. All tips will be distributed evenly among the performers.

We will not have equipment for musicians to use on these evenings, so please be as self-contained as possible.

Please RSVP if possible to so we will know how many of you to expect – if not then just show up anyway. All are welcome!

If you participate by listening, please bring your wine, beer and a feast for your appetite. We have had listeners even bring a candelabra to decorate their table for the evening.
