Rev. Cally Rogers-Witte served as Pastor at CUCC from 1977-1995. She left Raleigh to take the position of Conference Minister for the Southwest Conference of the UCC. She is now retired and spends part of her time at a home in Florida and in the remaining part in western North Carolina. On October 7, 2012, Cally returned to Community UCC to deliver a guest sermon on her remembrances of life at CUCC during the period she served as Pastor.
A memorial service for Carolyn King was held in the sanctuary at CUCC on October 6, 2012. The estimated crowd in the sanctuary was 250 people, and another 100 packed the overflow area in the fellowship hall to participate in the service via piped-in video. This was perhaps the most heavily attended event ever held on the grounds of Community UCC. Video of the complete service is available here and at YouTube. It is in four parts, and the total time is about 1 hour and 40 minutes. Filmed by Lavon Page.
