On June 3rd, we will begin discussing our next book, Hood Feminism: Notes From the Women that a Movement Forgot, by Mikki Kendall. We will be meeting most Thursdays at 7:00 PM on our regular Zoom Link.
—Time, “100 Must-Read Books of 2020”
“With poise and clarity, Kendall lays out the case for why feminists need to fight not just for career advancement but also for basic needs and issues that often plague women of color, including food security, educational access, a living wage and safety from gun violence. In expertly tying the racial justice and feminist movements together, Kendall’s is one of the most important books of the current moment.”
We encourage you to purchase your book from a local bookseller if possible! Please reach out to Kate Klonowski by calling or texting (216) 534-3498, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions.
After months of waiting and careful deliberation, it is time to come together and worship in person.
Please join us in the BUCC Sanctuary on Sunday June 13 at 10:00, and every Sunday after that.

The cooking is done and the meals served and delivered!
Brecksville United Church of Christ teamed up with culinary arts students at Cuyahoga Community College for a Friday Fish Meal. They prepared over 300 individual meals which we served as a hot, take out lunches as well as 4-pack take-home and reheat packages. We had orders from 37 people.
The best news is that we were able to donate over meals for over 40 families to St. Augustine Hunger Center in Tremont. We also shared our excess ingredients, which they will use in future meals.
Thank you to all who: promoted our event, planned & ordered supplies, prepared meals, answered the phones, ran meals out to the parking lot, delivered donated food, cleaned up, and most of all purchased meals!
See the pictures, below of our exciting, fun and rewarding day:
