Our Sunday Services begin at 10:00am.

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 – October 2015

October 4th
Living With Violence
The violence of everyday life can seem staggering. Smart Phones with cameras, social media, mass media, and 24-hour news channels bring the stories of our collective brutality charging into our consciousness everywhere we turn. It is easy to imagine a hell on earth. But is arming every man, woman, and child the solution? Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

October 11th
Blessing of the Animals
Our annual tribute to the Unitarian Universalist Covenantal Statement, We affirm and promote the Interconnected Web of Life, of which We are a Part. Our service is dedicated to celebrating the Inherent Worth and Dignity of every living thing, especially the magnificent creatures we share our lives with. Please feel free to bring your well behaved and well-managed pets to church. We also welcome pictures and mementos of pets that are dear to us to decorate our altar. Blessing to follow in the Gazebo after service. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

October 18th
Changing Perspectives
The Young Adult experience at the UUA General Assembly. The service will be presented by our Worship Ministry.

October 25th
“Pray For Me”
Pope Francis opens or closes almost every conversation with this entreaty. Old school? Yes. And yet it is such a powerful display of vulnerability and humility. He recently shared a possible explanation for this request during his visit to the United States, “Because all creatures are connected each must be cherished with love and respect, for all of us, as living creatures, are dependent on one another.” Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

November 1
Dia de Los Muertos
Our Worship Ministry brings us this significant and unifying annual celebration. It is a day of prayer and rememberance of friends and family members who have died; to help support their spiritual journeys and ours. Though traced back to ancient Aztec rituals, it has become a deep multi-religious tradition that helps anchor our Liturgical year. It is a day of special food, music, costume, prayer, and beautiful altars. Blessed be.

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.
