This week the church and Provo Pride, now in its sixth year, welcomed all in the area to meet and worship together during the Provo Pride Interfaith Night. The service had several speakers, including our friend Rev. J. Keith Cupples, several musical performers, and our organist Dave Lewis who collaborated with the event’s organizer. It was a well-attended evening and we look forward to more of these in the future.

Come share your talent and love of music with new friends and our community as we join together beginning August 19th at 5pm at the Provo Community Congregational United Church of Christ (175 north University Avenue, Provo). The choir is open to all denominations or if you are unaffiliated with any ages 16 and old. While no auditions are held for the choir, musical and singing abilities are very helpful. The choir sings uplifting music from religious, classical, musicals and movies, and Christmas. We are excited about several upcoming performances this season, so come join the fun and be a part of good here in Utah Valley!
Blessed are we to know Keith Cupples
and call him friend.
On July 22nd we will be celebrating his 70th birthday with a surprise party during Fellowship Time. Please bring a dish to share and your well wishes. Cake and ice cream will be provided.
If your children would like to make him cards, they would be more than welcome to do so.

Over the past few years we have been working to improve the church building and grounds, inside and out. In November of 2017, a torrential rain storm caught the area by surprise, and especially the church, as the ceilings gave way to water that found its way inside and collected above the ceilings. Multiple areas were damaged, including the sanctuary where part of the ceiling collapsed. Thankfully, no one was hurt. Despite having the roof inspected twice a year, the damage was done. The church’s insurance does not cover the cost of the repairs to the roof or to the interior. Patches have been made to the roof to buy some time, skylights replaced, and the interior has had the ceiling tiles removed that are no longer able to be matched and replaced with drywall that is awaiting paint. The roofs, fascia, and gutters of the church need replacing, and multiple interior areas need other work as well that were damaged and need updating. To add to the problem, it appears the shingles used on the A-frame also contain asbestos.
The church needs your financial help, in a big way. We as our current members, our former members, and our community to assist in this task. We are currently accepting donations towards this cause. Thank you so much. Please spread the word for us too.
