Our Sunday Services begin at 10:00am.

Journey to Compassion

Our children will live in the world we leave them. They will live with the problems we have not solved or handled. We cannot tell them how to live in that future. But they are learning from us right now. What values, what lessons are they learning as we create a religious community with them?

In our beloved community we are called to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We hold that each is a unique individual, precious in his or her own right, entitled to be received by loving arms and to be guided with sympathy and respect. These affirmations apply to our children as well. We take it as a duty incumbent on us all to provide that love, care, and support so that our children may grow to be confident in themselves, and joined to a larger humanity that loves all life. Let us begin a deepening of that journey.

Service Schedule – July, 2016

July 3rd
It is easy to forget that life is never static – it is ever changing. What seems like disaster in one moment might just be the kick in the (?!#%&?) that we need to change directions and unleash a new energy. This nation has never been perfect or anyhere near there. And just when you think it is at its lowest point, something magnificent occurs to give us renewed hope and purpose. Let us sing! – Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

July 10th
A House of Promise
In our faith tradition we commit to a Covenant of our own creation. Yet it has echoes of promises made in every religious tradition. How far does our covenant extend beyond just us? We are rightly measured by the promises we make and the promises we keep. Not just to each other, but to ourselves. What promises have we made to 'enter here'? Today we share the plate with Promise House. – Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

July 17th
The Spiritual Quest
Good religion requires a humility that springs from the knowledge that we are limited in our 'knowing'. And no matter how long we have on this earth and how much of our time we invest in our spirituality, we will end our days incomplete. Still, our lives can a be prayer that teases a smile from each other and a song from the universe. – Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

July 24th
Worship Ministry
Renee Brill will preach the sermon.

July 31st
Worship Ministry
Rev. Larry Brumfield will preach the sermon.

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.
