Coronavirus Updates

This page will be updated regularly as we continue to monitor the situation with COVID-19.


We will hold our next service, on March 22 at 10:30am on Zoom.  For those who would like to join the service via teleconference, the number is 1-301-715-8592.  The Meeting ID is 632 068 0813.  We hope to be able to provide most of what you have come to expect from a UUFF worship experience as well as virtual breakout rooms for children’s Religious Education.  Services will remain remote until the governor lifts the state of emergency.


The church will close except for essential services. This will apply to all our renters as well. Rev. Doug will continue to be available for 1:1 counseling and meetings in his office. Small meetings of 2 to 3 people will be permitted, but please adhere to this policy for the safety of all. Our Office Administrator, Nancy Michael, will be doing some of her work at home but will need to come into the office from time to time to check the mail and issue checks. Therefore, the regular office hours will not be in effect while we in this State of Emergency. The best way to reach the office at this time is via email at, and she will respond as she is able.


Should you be a person who lives alone and might need assistance, let Rev. Doug, Michele Nierle, or Diane Elstein know of your circumstances. If you know of someone in our community needing support, please pass on that information.

During the time of Covid 19, we want to ensure that everyone is getting the supplies and services that they need. Two forms have been created: one for volunteers and one for those wanting help with getting groceries, pharmacy needs, and/or babysitting.  Please contact Michele Nierle or Elizabeth Cameron if you have any questions or concerns.
