Dear Unitarian Universalist of Kern County members and friends,

In an abundance of caution with COVID 19 Coronavirus, along with careful consideration of recommendations from the Unitarian Universalist Association and official health agencies, we feel that it’s our responsibility to protect the well-being of our congregants and take action before COVID-19 Coronavirus could potentially get worse.

UUFKC is cancelling Sunday Services in Huber Chapel for the month of March.

We will be exploring other ways for us to remain connected in the weeks ahead and will reevaluate the situation for the month of April in hope we will restart our Sunday Services.

These are difficult times in which we are living, filled with increasing anxiety. Please be gentle with yourselves and with those around you; remember that above all else, Love is our “doctrine.” If this Coronavirus has taught us anything (besides the importance of washing our hands!), it is that we humans are truly connected; what a beautiful and important lesson.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact either of us. And stay healthy!

In faith…

Rich Malicdem, UUFKC Board President (

Rev. Anne Hines, UUFKC Minister (
