We have been taking advantage of the outdoors during Covid – at home, in the mountains and at the beach.

I really miss singing in the choir, but am so enjoying my small group discussions.

During the pandemic, we’ve done our best to spend lots of time outdoors. Whether we’re hiking the trails of Montreat, walking along Morgan Creek here in Chapel Hill, or simply playing ball with our new puppy in the backyard, we have enjoyed these months together as a family while spending time around all of God’s natural gifts.

But we also miss our UPC family so much! It has been wonderful to see many of you in our small group meet-ups, as well as occasionally around town at the grocery store or in the office. We look forward to the day when we can all be together again for worship and other UPC events!

2020 has brought lots of good family bonding time.  We have enjoyed a variety of fun family activities including puzzles, bike rides, front porch reading sessions, movie and popcorn nights.  We even tried a few new things…mud mask anyone? 

We miss our UPC family, but are grateful for our weekly online service and small group!

The power of prayer.

After two expected livers that did not pass the test for transplant at the very last minute, my cousin received the 3rd liver with an extremely successful transplant so far.

I am so appreciative of all my prayer warriors at UPC.

We’ve been spending lots of time outside, eating lots of ice cream, learning and working from home, and playing with our pandemic puppy Ollie.


Our internet service is cranky and we’re all feeling Zoom fatigue, so we have been especially grateful for some chances to connect with UPC in physical and in-person ways, including delivering yard signs and participating in small groups. We miss church and all of you!


– Ed, Jenni, Owen, Ruthie, and Milly Soccorso

We’ve started a new Sunday tradition: breakfast & church in bed. We’ve also taken a lot (a LOT) of walks.
