CANTON -- The Unitarian Universalist Church on East Main Street moves its Sunday morning services to St. Lawrence University’s Gunnison Chapel this summer while the church’s sanctuary is renovated.

Beginning Sunday, July 7, the 10:30 a.m. services will be held in Gunnison. The summer religious education program will be held there as well, but there are no facilities for nursery care. There will be no formal coffee and social hour after the service.

On July 7, guest preacher C.J. McGregor will address “Reinterpretation” in the sermon. McGregor asks “Why don’t we revisit and reinterpret our past more often? Maybe a better question is why would we do this? Why not let bygones be bygones. Why don’t we just keep moving forward not wasting time dredging up the past? Why are we determined to release ourselves from our past by putting it and keeping it behind us?”

Rev. McGregor is an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister who has served churches in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. He is currently living in Brasher, but will be relocating to Florida where he will serve as the minister for the First UU Congregation of the Palm Beaches.

Services will return to the church at 3½ East Main Street on Sunday, Aug. 11.
