What do we risk by committing to a cause greater than ourselves? And what might we risk by failing to commit? Join us for worship as we celebrate the kickoff of our annual Living Generously campaign and wonder together about how we are called to follow the beacon of our highest values.

Pastoral Note

 A longtime friend of the church, Mary Ann Clonts, died in late January. There was no announcement nor memorial for her, and she had no family in Cheyenne. She had been very supportive of Family Promise here at UUCC and was instrumental in our immigration justice work starting in 2012. She often gave of her time and offered generous gifts and financial support to those in need. We honor the generous heart and well-lived life of Mary Ann Clonts. 

Upcoming Events

Join us March 7th from 6 – 8 pm for a night of reflection and conversation about how you can deepen your connections to our ministry! Whether you’re brand new and wondering how to make the first moves to get involved or you’ve been around for-ev-er and you’re looking to refresh your engagement at the congregation, this night is for you. We’ll engage in fellowship and guided spiritual reflection, and supper will be served, too!
