Each month, UUCWC celebrates a theme with opportunities for you to deepen your connection within, among and beyond our community.  

December’s theme is Mystery.   Let’s let mystery work its magic. Let’s allow ourselves to fall in and be opened up. Here are some ways to become a part of something larger this month.
