Join Us for Sunday Service!
Sunday, April 29th, at 10:30 am
Here We Are
Rev. Hannah Roberts Villnave
We are all called to do holy work in this world, but how do we know what that calling is? Join us in worship as we explore what it means to discern a calling and follow it.
Membership Classes at UUCC!
The next class is May 6th!
Have you been thinking about becoming a member of our congregation? Are you interested in learning more about Unitarian Universalism or UUCC? Starting this month, we’ll be holding our new member classes on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 11:45 – 12:45 in the Library. On the first Sunday of the month, Rev. Hannah will lead us in an exploration of Unitarian Universalist history and identity. On the third Sunday, our Membership team will lead us through some history and identity of UUCC specifically. Newcomers and long-timers and everybody in between are welcome to attend!
Both classes will be required before joining UUCC, and there will be an opportunity to join the church on the 4th Sunday of every month! If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org
Silent Cake Auction!
Sunday, May 13, 2018
The UUCC youth group annual cake auction will be May 13, 2018 after church in the Social Hall. This year we hope to get all the Faith Development classes involved.

Please mark your boxes “Garage Sale”. Clothing will be taken, but please no undergarments or mostly used bottles of personal care items such as shampoo.

Message from UUSC
As we reflect on this Earth Day, we are reminded of some of the incredible partners we have the privilege to support. Their stories remind us of the power of community and the right to self-determination.
Watch a short video to learn more about the work of our partners and the threats they face due to climate change.
The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee is first and foremost a human rights organization, and we are called to speak out against the injustice of climate-forced displacement. We are called to actively advocate for the rights of affected communities in the spaces we’re in.
Please share the video, talk to your friends, family, and congregations about the impact of climate change on communities around the world.
Thank you for your ongoing interest in this critical work.
The UUSC Team

We have posted signs up around the church a number of times but again we must stress the importance of NOT bringing any peanuts or foods with peanuts in them into the building at all. We have a member of our congregation that has a deathly allergy to peanuts and anything with peanuts in them. When this member discovers there are peanuts in the building, they have to leave immediately. This means that they miss out on our various activities or meetings that they need to be at. The allergy is critical and we DO NOT want to alienate this member or any others who have this allergy. PLEASE, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD! that we cannot allow peanuts into the building. (If you are bringing in a packaged item, please try to check that it wasn’t manufactured in a facility that processes anything with peanuts.)
