The Carolyn and Cy King Peace and Justice Award
The Carolyn and Cy King Peace and Justice Award honors those who embody spirits of service and grace and demonstrate commitments to addressing issues of justice and peace in our community and world.

Through the establishment of this award, members and friends of Community United Church of Christ convey the deepest expression of gratitude and appreciation for the lives of service of Carolyn and Cy King, two long-time members of the congregation.
