FAITH FORWARD Series

Faith Forward teaches how we “do” church and what it really means to be a member of UUCWC. 

It’s valuable for those coming to Unitarian Universalism from other religious backgrounds as well as the “nones” or the un-churched.  It helps both new visitors, and new and existing church members, understand and engage with our community and our UU faith.

Faith Forward is a series of eight, drop-in gatherings held between the services from 10-11am in Room 103.

If you’re leaving the 9 am service or going to the 11 am, you’ll have time to navigate between the services.

The dates and topics are:

Faith Forward Series

ROOTS (1 Session)

Faith Forward is followed by the Roots program, a sweeping overview of UU history.  It’s a conversation about both our roots and our evolving theology. It’s a great place to ask our big and small questions about the UU history and faith tradition.
6/3     Roots (11:30-1:00)
              A light vegetarian lunch is provided. Childcare is available if requested.

A Chalice Circle is the small group practice of intentional listening and speaking.  It’s the way to explore UUCWC’s monthly theme in depth.  Drawn from the Quaker theologian, Parker Palmer’s, “Circle of Trust,” it’s a safe place to hear and be heard.

The Chalice Circle meets twice a month for a three-month series (six sessions total). An empty chair symbolizes the group’s openness to newcomers and existing members and friends.

The only requirements are pre-registration and a 30-minute orientation to the circle prior to joining.  A small donation of $10 members or $15 non-members for the series is requested.
