Creating Sacred Space

This year we continue our journey of 'becoming.' We are becoming a spiritually fearless, multi-racial, multi-cultural, and multi-generational congregation. We are attracting folks who feel the love, and feel the confidence to stay, and grow with us. They are gaining the confidence to invite their friends and family to come too.

At the heart of this is the ability to find a safe place to transform our unique and individual journeys from what they have been to what they might become.

There are many ways to reveal ourselves to the community that holds us; to create a curiosity that beckons; an invitation that compels them to share our joy; to savor our sacred space. We have an opportunity to become instruments of peace and protection for those who have come and for those who are on their way. Let us continue to create sacred space on our Campus, in our Sanctuary, and in our Hearts.

Service Schedule – July 2015

July 5th
It's been a wonderful two weeks in our nation's history. There is much to celebrate. This weekend traditionally asks us to stress our Independence yet it seems more important this year to celebrate our Interdependence, too. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

July 12th
We don't obsess much about the possibilities of heaven in this faith tradition. We don't give much weight to the ideas of Purgatory or Hell either. And we don't seem to worry much about preparing ourselves for an after-life in some alternate place in space and time. So what can Redemption mean for us? Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

July 19th
Survey Says!...
I loved to watch Family Feud back in the day. Yet in church life surveys too often encourage us to stress about what seems to be wrong in our congregations and rarely present opportunities to build on what may be great about it. Today we'll revisit surveys and play our own version of Family Feud! Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

July 26th
The Psychological Cost of Silence
Rev. Larry Brumfield will preach the sermon about finding the courage to "SPEAK UP."

Logistics of Sunday Worship: 

At about 9:30am, we begin gathering to share conversation and morning snacks (coffee, tea, juice, muffins, etc.) in the Faith building foyer. A bell is rung just before 10:00am to call everyone into the sanctuary for worship. 

We have members of all ages at UUCOC - singles, couples, and families. We encourage everyone to sit wherever they are most comfortable. For the kids, special areas have been set up to satisfy the needs of a wide variety of ages and learning styles. The front left section of seating has been designated for the teens, youth, children and parents, along with other adult mentors. Teenagers and youth, like many adults, often enjoy worship more when they can sit near their friends or peer group.

You can listen to a selection of recorded sermons by clicking here.

UUCOC proudly offers the Williams Sound Personal PATM
listening system for the convenience of those needing
hearing assistance.

For children who are happier listening from a more relaxed position, there is a carpet on the floor in front of the pulpit, with materials to provide a multiple-sensory experience (for example, crayons and coloring pages related to the service topic). 

We understand that very young children may have trouble containing their exuberance and movement for an hour, and their parents can enjoy the service more if they're not worrying about their children. A fully equipped nursery is available in the Hope Building and regular staffing is available on most Sundays. When available, the nursery will be open for check-in between 9:45am and 10:00am, and will be staffed until the worship service concludes. 

Feel free to call to check that the nursery is staffed on any particular Sunday. If staff is not available, parents are still welcome to use the nursery, and listen to the service via the wall speaker.
