Services

From May 4, 2014 through early September, there is one Sunday service at 10:00 am.   From mid-September through May, 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.

Theme for July: Celebration

In The Wisdom of Heschel, Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote, “People of our time are losing the power of celebration. Instead of celebrating, we seek to be amused or entertained. Celebration is an active state, an act of expressing reverence or appreciation.” July is a time when we celebrate the warmth of summer, living simply and enjoying the rights we have in our country. The many aspects of the season for which we show appreciation include hikes through lush green vegetation and the sound of the ocean. Come celebrate the many aspects of July!

Please Note: Beginning May 4, there will be one service at 10:00 am through the summer until early September.

July 6: “Country of the Future”
Rev. Jennifer Brooks
This week as we celebrate American independence, we look back to the events of 238 years ago. We marvel at the clarity of thought, the commitment, the passion. In 1776, the founders believed they were creating the country of the future. Now, by our words and deeds, we’re creating the country of our future.

July 13: “Beginning Again”
Rev. Jennifer Brooks
As promised in her first UUCWC sermon two years ago, Rev. Jennifer offers a message with the same title but different content. This “bookend” to that first sermon is her farewell after serving as UUCWC’s transitional minister. It’s been a time of learning, growth, laughter, and love; today, we celebrate our journey together.

A farewell party and picnic follows the service.

July 20:  “A Spiritual Journey through Musical Theatre”
Caryl Tipton, Director, Music Ministry
Spiritual searching can be found in the music and story of many of our favorite musical theatre productions. From “The Sound of Music” to “Fiddler on the Roof” to “Rent,” lyricists and composers weave their search into poetry and song.

July 27:  “Learning from the Natural World”
Andrew Conrad and Bill Cox
With members of the Natural Cosmology Group, Andrew and Bill will swap information and insights on what each of us have come to know about the evolution of the universe and how that might bear on our lives and on a natural religion for our common future. Music by Gregg Pontier.
