In 1974 with 45 members, the congregation applied to the Unitarian Universalist Association
(UUA) for a minister-on-loan, and Frank Anderson
was sent to Savannah
Later, under a less formal arrangement, Rev. Anderson
became minister â€œon loanâ€� a second time.
In those years, the membership grew from 45 to 50.
When Rev. Anderson retired from New England church, he communicated with members saying he wanted to make a move and start anew.
The Board performed a feasibility study with the Thomas Jefferson District to determine if UUCS
could support a minister, subsequently calling Rev. Anderson
, who served from 1981 to 1989.
