Services

From September 14, 2014 through May 10, 2015, Sunday services are at 9:15 am and 11:00 am.  Starting on Sunday, May 17, 2015 and during the summer, 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.

August Theme:  Humility
Humility has not always been the strongest point of Unitarian Universalism. We are a tradition that lives in the tension of fact and perspective; of Truth and truths; of science and constant revelation. Join us for a month in which we lift up the promise that without each other, it is impossible to see.

We are now in our summer service schedule, with only one Sunday service, at 10:00 am.

August 2: “The Final Act: ROMEOs Do More Than Eat Out”
ROMEOs leading the service
When we enter retirement, elements that defined our lives such as career, position, and status morph or fade. People show us deference. It is bittersweet. How do we find meaning and relevance in this time? What gets us up in the morning and gives us joy? Several members offer thoughts on living well in the “golden” years.

August 9: “The Hard, Good, and Humble Work to Come”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Rev. Kim preaches on the hard, good, and humble work that will be our churchwide social justice project beginning in October. Come and explore where our efforts will be placed and how and why we will do this work over the course of the next year.

August 16: “The View From the Way Station”
Terry Caton
What circumstances and teachers influence the spiritual odyssey of a “cradle” Unitarian Universalist? Terry will talk about these events and people and their meaning in her life.

August 23: “It Takes a Village”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
We all know the saying “It takes a village” but who really has one? And do we really want one? On Rev. Kim’s last Sunday with us before her and Tara’s baby comes into the world, let us join in exploring the humility of village life.

August 30: “A Place Called Chalice Circle”
Susan Colket and Chalice Circle Facilitators
There is a place called Chalice Circle. It’s where you can be, connect, and experience the theme of the month in a safe, small group; a circle of trust. Explore the August theme of Humility and the Chalice Circle experience with DRE Robin Pugh and the four Chalice Circle Facilitators: Sara Holcombe, Michelle Hunt, Kathy Frey, and Susan Colket.
