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.

March’s theme: A People of Resilience
Our faith tradition sometimes plays into this heroic form of resilience. We reject the idea that human beings are depraved, broken, and weak. Instead, we champion the view that we are strong — not just inherently worthy but also inherently resourceful. We have, at times, promoted a “You can do it!” theology. And yet, at our best, we are more nuanced. When it comes to resilience, our most saving message has always been, “You can do it and you do not have to do it on your own!”

March 1: “A People of Resilience”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
“Resilence” is not the solo effort that our culture — and, at times, our own tradition — promotes. This is not martyrdom to prove that we can survive challenges. As Unitarian Universalists and as the UUCWC community, we have a deep history of connectedness that creates a resilient people.

March 8: “Selma Sunday
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Nearly 50 years ago, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. sent a telegram to faith leaders around the country, including Unitarian Universalists, calling on them to join him in Selma. We heeded the call. Now, Unitarian Universalists are once more being called on to continue to bear witness against the “disease of racism.”

March 15: “Being One Among None: The Resilient UU”
Terry Caton, Jesse Cohen, Barbara Drew, Frank Holstein, and Betsy Young
Reflections from UUCWC members who were born into or have been long-time Unitarian Universalists — and the resilience it takes to maintain one’s faith.

March 22: “Stewardship Sunday”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Let’s kick off this year’s Stewardship season right! We’ve been talking about talking about money. Now let’s talk about all that makes this congregation possible. Join us for a Sunday of consideration, celebration, and commitment.

March 29: “Question Box”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Do you have questions for me? Questions about the congregation, theology, current events, or Unitarian Universalism? About something on your heart and mind? At the beginning of the service, I’ll invite you to write questions on index cards; my spontaneous responses to these questions will be our sermon.
