Parking at Proctor

Proctor has asked KUUF to park in the maintenance parking lot in the back of the church or to the left of the Maxwell Savage Hall.  We can continue to use the small parking area over to the left of the Chapel, just off the circle – about 5 or 6 spaces.  However, we should make them available for those who may have a problem walking from the other parking lots.  There are maps of Proctor available.  They will be on the table as you enter the Chapel on Sundays.



Also we’d like to arrange Circle Dinners and Movie Nights.  If you would like to host a dinner or movie night, or if you would like more information, please contact:

Book Discussions

June 25th. 2017 - 9:30 AM

It Can’t Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis, 1935

A novel that foreshadowed Donald Trump’s authoritarian appeal.  - Salon

A cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy.  It is an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America. It Can’t Happen Here is the only one of Sinclair Lewis’s later novels that match the power of Main Street,  Babbitt, and Arrowsmith.

Written during the Great Depression when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler’s aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press.  A novel that remains as fresh and contemporary as today’s news.

This book is available in hardcover, paperback,  and audio.  Please join us for the discussion even if you haven’t read the book.

The Adult Lectures series is going on hiatus until next September.  After many years of exploring topics on religion, history, philosophy and science it was time to take a break.  In the interim we will be looking at ways to expand our horizons as we search for new material to inspire us.


The KUUF Member/Friend Directory is easy to update but that can happen only if you let Liz Klingler know of an entry that needs to be changed or updated.  Let her know either at church or by e-mail (, and she thanks you.



Sundays, we will collect canned goods and non-perishables to share with those less fortunate, by way of the New London and Andover Food Pantry.




Your Caring Committee has supported a number of members with food deliveries, notes of encouragement, and phone calls to remind members of the help available from the Caring Committee. Please call us when we can be of assistance.

The Women’s Meditation Group will meet on Tuesdays, June 6 and 20th at Fran Preston’s from 3:00 to 5:00 PM.  If you have any questions, please contact Sally Bergquist at 763-4098 or Fran Preston at 526-9623.




A feature of our religious education program, as we continue to grow and have more families with younger children, is a 2nd class for infants and toddlers.  It truly takes a village to raise a child.  Please consider volunteering to be care-taker for the infants and toddlers during one or two Sunday services this year.

If you have any questions about the program, please call RE Director Donna Peirce at 763-2516.

Extra Hands needed for Sunday School

At times, depending on the number of children attending Sunday School, an extra pair of hands may be needed.

If you are willing to make yourself available on such Sundays, please put your name on the sign up sheet, which will be on the welcome table.  Choose a Sunday, sign up and if the children’s attendance on that Sunday is over the number that Erin and Donna can comfortably handle they will approach you to help them on that morning.

Mostly you would be asked to help with the children under 4 years of age in the toy room that is set up for childcare.  Holding a little one, chatting with them while they play, and reading books that are available is all that it takes to make these young ones “happy campers”.  (If you would like to help with the older children just let Libby or Donna know your wishes.)

We are so lucky to have Donna keeping things flowing each Sunday for our children.  We know by the children’s happy faces that they are feeling very special and loved.   Please sign up and be a part of this cooperative approach to our children’s Sunday morning experience.
