PUUC as a Community Center

The PUUC is host to numerous activities on a recurring basis, some church related or sponsored, some independent. For a complete schedule see our Calendar.

Non-Church Activities

Christmas shopping at the Local Living Craft FairMeetings of Twelve Step groups are held here weekly. Yoga classes are conducted by several different instructors in the Parish Hall.
