Charter Sunday

“The highlight of the year was Charter Sunday on December 5, 1993. UUA district administrator Helen Bishop visited from Illinois. Fifty-six adults lined up during the service to sign the membership book. One former Catholic was reminded of lining up for communion. Arthur Thexton and Art Hackett signed first in recognition of their founding role.

“More than 70 people signed over four Sundays as charter members. (The children signed a book of their own.) The UUA welcomed the new congregation into the denomination. James Reeb Unitarian Universalist Church was finally official.
