Great News from the Financial Planning Team

United Parish has been invited to submit the full grant application for the National Fund for Sacred Places. This means that we are in the 10% of applicants invited to take this next step. From here, we are hoping to be in the 50% that are chosen to participate in Sacred Places' 2022 cohort of approximately 15 congregations. In the words of the staff at the Partners for Sacred Places, “…Your congregation exemplifies what the National Fund is about: recognizing sacred places that tell stories integral to understanding our national heritage and supporting capital projects that enable vibrant congregations to continue to serve their communities.” Special thanks to Lietza M., Holly V., David Dunphy, Jennifer Rodine, Kent, Doug Johnson, and Mark J. who wrote the initial letter of intent. More news to follow at our annual meeting. See you there! Contact Lietza at
