In order to comply with the Florida State and CDC recommendations regarding social distancing and safety precautions related to the coronavirus pandemic, our ministers and board have made the decision to close the UUCJ campus, effective immediately, except for essential staff activities (checking the mail, writing checks, etc.). Staff will be working from home as much as possible, and have been hard at work developing alternative ways of doing their regular work activities. We will be informing the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office of this decision, so they are aware that there will be limited personnel on campus.
In addition, please know that O’Leno is cancelled, as the Florida State Parks is closing to all overnight activities for at least the next two months.
If you have food items for the Arlington Pantry, we ask that you take your items directly to the pantry, which we assume is better able to handle donations at this time (and no doubt needs them). This eliminates the need for people to come to the campus to collect and deliver your donations.
We are committed to the health and well-being of everyone in the congregation, and hope that you are managing well in this uncertain time. Please reach out to your ministers (Marti Keller, , and Roberta Finkelstein, ) if you need assistance, or want to participate in their virtual “office hours.”
