Services

Sunday services are at 9:15 am and 11:00 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.

October 2:  “Sympathy and Empathy”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
What does it mean to be a Community of Healing in times of personal or communal despair?
Greg Pontier will be our musician.

October 9: “The Doctrine of Discovery and the Separation of Church and State”
Rev. Charles J. Stephens, minister emeritus
On this Columbus Day weekend, what would your reaction be if the US Supreme Court were to base their decision between the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and oil companies in North Dakota on an ancient Papal document? We may not be personally responsible for what happened centuries ago to Native Americans when this, their land was invaded by European explorers, soldiers and settlers. We are, however, responsible for the society and the country we live in today. Nine years ago the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly passed a Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Four years ago our UU General Assembly also passed a resolution concerning The Doctrine of Discovery.
Crossings Choral will sing at both services.

October 16:  “A Blessing for One Who is Exhausted “
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Poet John O’Donohue’s poem, A Blessing for One Who is Exhausted, begins “When the rhythm of the heart becomes hectic.” Come all exhausted, weary and hearts that are hectic, and gather for this Sunday together.

October 23: “What Does it Mean to be American Today”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
Weeks away from the election and nearing the end of our Centennial year. Billy Sunday, the figure UUCWC began in response to, was once the pillar of what it meant to be American. What does it mean to be American today?

October 30: “All Saints and All Souls Day”
Rev. Kim Wildszewski
How do we heal the wounds of those who have passed? How do we heal from the wounds that the deceased have left us?
Crossings Choral will sing at both services.
