Services

Sunday services are at 9:15 am and 11:00 am.  During the summer, starting on May 29, 2016, there is one service at 10:00 am.

Childcare is available during services.

Services last for about one hour; dress is casual and children are welcome.

We strive to make our facility welcoming and our services supportive. We actively work to remove barriers to participation:

  • Reserved parking for people with disabilities is in front of the church
  • Our building is wheelchair accessible and has a wheelchair lift
  • We offer large-print hymnals and hearing aids
  • Child care is provided for children up to age 3 in the nursery at both services
  • Coffee hours often include offerings for people with special dietary needs
  • You will be greeted at the door with a smile and treated with warmth and dignity, whether this is your first visit or if you have been with us for many years

Religious education classes are offered during the 9:15 am and 11:00 am services from September through early June. A summer program is offered for children ages 3–10 from mid-June – September. If you are the caregiver of a child with disabilities, please do not hesitate to let us know how we can help your child participate in activities.

All services are followed by a coffee hour so we can meet more informally. If you visit us, please join us for fellowship after the service so we may welcome you properly and get to know you. We have several programs to help newcomers and prospective members learn more about Unitarian Universalism and UUCWC.

June Theme: Simplicity
“It is easy to be heavy: Hard to be light.” — G K Chereston
This month, we explore the spiritual practice of simplicity — and no surprise here: It won’t be simple! With an addiction to busyness and a status quo that expects overscheduling, it will take all of us to celebrate a different equation of worthy simple living.

We are on our summer service schedule. For the month of June, there will be one service at 10:00am.

June 5: “What Does It Mean to Be a People of Simplicity?”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
In anticipation of our Annual Meeting, a time packed with all that makes this congregation possible, let us gather for an hour to reflect on simplicity and the de-cluttering of the heart and mind.

June 12: “The Flower Communion”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Come one, come all to our annual Flower Communion, one of the few Unitarian Universalist rituals shared by UUs throughout the world. Remember to bring a flower! The Crossings Chorale will offer its “Best of 2015–2016.”

June 19: “Answering the Call”
Sadie Lansdale
Unitarian Universalists believe in the inherent worth and dignity of every person. What does this mean when so many are suffering and living in undignified circumstances? Join seminarian and FDNY chaplain intern Sadie Lansdale for a worship service about awakening human worth in the midst of desperation.

Sadie Lansdale is a candidate for UU ministry and a Masters of Divinity student at Union Theological Seminary. A lifelong Unitarian Universalist, Sadie is delighted to return to UUCWC for the third time.

June 26: “The Washington Crossing–Pennington Street”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Each year during the days preceding General Assembly, religious professionals from all over the country gather to hear the famous “Berry Street Lecture” given by a UU minister. It is a time to consider where we’ve been and to hear a charge regarding where we’re going. Join Rev. Kim to hear where UUCWC has been and where she believes we need to go!
