What's all this talk about a UU Cluster? Essentially, the Greater Philly UU Cluster (GPC) is a group of 14 nearby UU congregations (including MLUC as the largest member!). The cluster aims to actively connect these congregations in order to share our message and grow our faith.

How can the Cluster benefit you?

The GPC Google calendar covers events happenening at all 14 UU congregations in the area. This is a great way to meet other UUs and spread the word about MLUC events beyond our congregation.

  • Black Lives Matter forum: October 26, 7:00 p.m. at UU Germantown
  • GPC Racial Justice Advocacy training with Paula Cole Jones: Saturday, October 29, at MLUC (more details to come)

      
Want to get involved? The next GPC meeting is open to all: Saturday, September 17, 9:30-11:30 a.m. (meet and greet at 9:00) at the UUC of Delaware County. Mark Bernstein will present, "Covenants: Why They Fail. Why They Shouldn't"

Get connected with your fellow UU’s!

This past Saturday, MLUC held a dedication service for its “Black Lives Matter” banner. The banner was placed in front of the church at the intersection of South Valley Forge Road and Maplewood Avenue in Devon. Several hundred congregants, as well as visitors and friends were in attendance.

St. David's Nursery School, a 48-year-old, non-profit, private pre-school which is presently operating out of St. David's Episcopal Church (our neighbor down the road), is looking for a new home. Should MLUC rent out our classrooms to provide them a new home?

St. David's Nursery School director, Joanne Lorine, gave a persentation at MLUC on Wednesday, August 24, at 7:00 p.m. Members were invited to share their opinions and ask questions. Hear both the presentation and discussion at the link below.
