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.

July Theme: What does it mean to be a People of Wonder?
Openness, not understanding, is the point. Reverence, more than revelation, is the gift. If inquiry has the feel of figuring out a puzzle; then wonder might be best described as feeling like a gift

We are on our summer service schedule. For the months of July and August, there will be one service at 10:00am.

July 3: “Finding God’s Country”
Penny Gardner
Penny Gardner wanders off to see America the beautiful, only to realize the most meaningful sight is right here at home.

July 10: “The Third Summer”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Today’s sermon will not be what was originally planned.  We will grieve, cry, lament, hope, learn, lean on one another and lean into the hard places. I hope to see you there.

July 17: “Roots and Renewal”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Ever wonder what Rev. Kim is saying at those Roots classes?  Here is your opportunity!  Join Rev. Kim for the first of two sermons on our Unitarian and Universalist history beginning with the question: Who was Jesus? 

July 24: “Spirituality in Popular Music
Caryl Tipton, Director Music Ministry
The universal language of popular music plays an important spiritual role in our world by filling a void, inspiring hope and even providing spiritual guidance and wisdom in times of tragedy and confusion. From “pop” to rock, hip hop, rap, country and folk, mainstream popular music can inspire soul searching when it reaches beyond the more common romantic, materialistic and sexual themes that permeate the “pop” music of our culture.

July 31: “Seeds and Sprouts”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Join Rev. Kim for the second service on our Unitarian and Universalist history, helping lift the veil of how we got to be this creedless religion of plurality.

August Theme: What does it mean to be a People of Possibility?
Possibility is central to Unitarian Universalist faith. While others saw humankind as fundamentally depraved, early Universalists saw a possibility for redemption in everyone. While many saw the suffering of life as payment for eternal happiness in heaven, early Unitarians saw the possibility of heaven on earth. The early Christian Unitarians and Universalists believed in a good God who wanted the best for us. God would not give up on us, so we should not give up on God. Perhaps this makes us a religion of “Why not?”

August 7:  “I Ain’t Afraid”
Terry Caton
How is it to live as a feminist in today’s society? Sounds like a no-brainer, doesn’t it? Terry Caton, Mary Ann Sprenkle and Jen Rehbein will give you some (possibly) surprising answers.

August 14: A People of Possibility
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
How might we practice and prepare the way for a communal spiritual exercise of “Why Not?”

August 21:  To be Announced”
Holly Bussey

August 28: “To be Announced”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
