Policy for Returning to Church
If you test positive for COVID-19, or become aware of another individual at UUFC who tests positive for COVID-19, please refer to the Pandemic Exposure Procedures.
At the behest of the Board, the Council of Committees took over the work of the Re-Entry Task Force to establish policies and guidelines for a safe and responsible return to our physical facilities during the novel coronavirus pandemic. A significant number of our members, friends, staff and their households are in one or more high risks groups. Our faith tradition calls us to make the safety of all of these individuals our highest priority. That same tradition also calls us to respect the guidance of science when making decisions concerning reopening our facilities.
Criteria for Reopening
Any transition to reopening, or any transition from one phase to another of reopening, must be informed by the relevant data regarding COVID-19 cases in the area (specifically, Anderson,Oconee, Pickens and Greenville counties in SC, and Hart county in GA), with a minimum of 14 days of a downward trend in new cases........

New Online Covenant Groups
Interested in joining an online covenant group?
The Rev. Christina Branum-Martin will facilitate
up to two new online groups (unfortunately,
COVID-19 does not yet permit in-person
meetings) beginning this fall. Covenant groups are a great way to get to know other members and friends better, and, of course, to get to know our new interim minister!
