We offer many opportunities for worship and fellowship via Zoom. 
Our Zoom services can be accessed using the links below:

Sunday Worship is our traditional service setting and includes hymns, readings, and a sermon or speaker. Join us every Sunday from 10 to 11 am. 

We’ve added a “coffee chat” to our Sunday services!

After our services, stay and chat with a small group. We’re experimenting on what kind of chats we can offer, and if you have an idea for a chat topic, let us know!

This Sunday May 27th: Beyond Comprehension

Have you ever felt like people are just talking past one another? Like we might even be speaking different languages? The Christian festival of Pentecost invites us to see the possibility in these cacophonies, and we might even find some distinctly Unitarian Universalist blessing and possibility in the midst of the noise. All are welcome! (Plus, we will have a new member ceremony to welcome some new members before our Annual Meeting at 11:15!) 


 All are welcome!

Join Zoom Meeting

Going Deeper is a conversational format on Wednesday evenings from 8-9pm:
Our Annual Meeting is this coming Sunday following our worship service! We’ll gather at 11:15 am on Zoom, accessible via phone, tablet, or computer. See you then! 

You can access the meeting by phone by dialing 346-248-7799 and entering meeting ID: 953 0944 3619.

UUCC Faith Development News
Hello all! 

Hello all!
I hope this note finds you all good and managing our social distancing and quarantine as well as can be hoped. We’ve all been living in such a topsy turvy world the last couple of months (seems like longer). Hang in there and please remember, I’m always available to chat or listen. Some of us are doing really well and plugging along but some people are having a  rougher time. While we’re all doing what we can to stay healthy, we sometimes need another human to talk to. Please, if you need connection…. don’t hesitate to reach out. 

SERIOUSLY 🙂 We’re all in this together! 

Mary Scherden, 
Director of Faith Development, She/Her/Hers

Payment:  The Bird and Bell Meditation, Terri’s Thursday class, and Friday’s spiritual practice are completely free of charge.  In these times of economic uncertainty, Audrey’s classes are offered regardless of a person’s ability to pay.  So it will be on a voluntary donation basis as to if and how much people are willing or able to contribute. For those who wish to do so, donations can be done via PayPal or mail.  You can donate for a single class, or for several classes at once, whatever is easiest for you.

Important! Please Read!

We have been experiencing a growing issue with peanut residue in the building, especially in the library.  Please, do not bring peanut products into the building, and if your little ones enjoy their peanut butter snacks before coming, please be sure their hands are clean before they touch surfaces used by everyone.  We are seeing almost daily allergic reactions, so we ask you to please be diligent. It may be an inconvenience to you, but it can be life-threatening to those who are allergic. 

Upcoming Events
