SUNDAY Morning Service ~ Oct 17 10:30 AM

Sunday Service IN PERSON & LIVE STREAMED on Zoom (link below)
We are meeting in person in the church parking lot. If you are unable to bring your own chair, we will provide one for you.

Rev. Allen Harden
Sermon: "Our Cathedral of Everything"
Wonder, awe, and mind-blowing mystery. The natural order and process of our universe is the greatest religious story. We constantly engage what is sacred – in us and around us – and we can benefit by holding the presence of nature, and our presence in nature, in reverence. How can we not feel humility, respect, and graciousness for the privilege of being alive?

Parking Lot Project Needs Contributions

At the annual congregational meeting on June 6, 2010, the congregation voted to allow the board to approve up to $50,000 for repaving the parking lot. This is a major project requiring donations and monetary contributions totalling at least $25,000 in order for the church to receive matching loans from Beverly Bank & Trust.

As of June 6, nearly $15,000 has been pledged or contributed. The Castle Pre-School parents have received a letter about donating to this project and more fundraising will be done over the next year.  The Castle parking lot is used by Rock Island RR commuters as well as for church and pre-school attended events.

BUC congregants and friends are encouraged to support this project and all pledges can be emailed to: .
