Services

From September 14, 2014 through May, Sunday services are at 9:15 am and 11:00 am.  During the summer, there is one service at 10:00am.

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.

October’s Theme: For the month of October we look at the theme of What it means to be a People of Renewal.  This is not simply, “How do I refresh?” but also the spiritual practice of asking, “How do I return?” The challenge in life and of renewal is not just about moving forward, but moving forward without losing touch with all we hold dear.

October 5: “Is This Seat Taken?”
Sadie Lansdale, Union Theological Seminary
Despite our best efforts, we fail each other. Often, we do not behave as we would wish. Today we will explore community, apology, and belonging. We will reflect on the lessons of the Jewish high holiday of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, through a Unitarian Universalist lens.

October 12: “Give Them Not Hell”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
John Murray is quoted as saying, “Give them not Hell but Hope.” As we begin our exploration on What it means to be a People of Renewal, join in this age-old conversation on Hell and Hope and who we are today.

October 19: “The Promises We Don’t Keep”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Having spoken of Promises only a month before, let us explore covenant once again through the promises we don’t keep and the renewal that is offered to us all.

October 26: “Vows of Renewal”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Renewal is not simply a practice of beginning again; often, it is a time for returning. Join us for a time of returning and the offer to heal in doing so.
