Refinance Motion Passed! The congregation approved the motion to refinance the church mortgage to borrow money for property repairs. The loan is expected to be finalized in February 2018, and projects should begin shortly thereafter. Completion of projects will depend upon various factors, including weather conditions. Many thanks to all of you who attended the Congregational Meeting and demonstrated that this church is worthy of the investment of our time, energy, and money. Updates will be available as plans are finalized. Feel free to contact the Board at board@uucl.org if you have questions at any time.
