Re-Creation

Twelve years ago we took a bold step by changing the name of our congregation from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Dallas to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Oak Cliff. Bold because it required us to leave the comfort of the Fellowship movement, accept the more formal responsibilities inherent in the name 'Church,' and seek a stronger presence in the religious conversation of North Texas. The intervening years gave witness to our transformation. Together we have achieved a Fearless Spirituality. Today we stand confident in our ability to embrace our neighbors and welcome their journeys into ours.

This Church is now a covenantal community fired by curiousity and in search of a constantly improving extended family. Join us in a year of Re-Creation, as we re-invent ourselves yet again.

"Love Your Enemy"
Every great religious tradition has proffered some version of 'Love Your Neighbor As Yourself' but some have demanded that we love our enemy, too. It is easier to love our spouse or mate, our family and friends, but can we really extend ourselves all the way? Is it in our interest to try? Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

April 13
"Primordial Trust"
When the world is turned upside down – via negativa – when the chaos strikes and most people run and hide, uncertain of what to do next, the Warriors, Prophets, Mystics, and Lovers withstand the pain and the chaos. They trust themselves, stay, and engage this life and the justice we crave. They stay and defend the life they love. Who and what do you trust? Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

April 20
"Called to New Life"
Easter is a celebration that crosses most all religious boundaries, gathering the world up in its festival of resurrection, rebirth, and re-creation. It reconciles our relationship with the Universe and with each other. It provides the promise of a wiser, deeper covenant for us all. – Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

April 27
"Balance of the Human Spirit"
Just like in the Avatar (“Last Airbender”) world, there is a need for balance in our world and in ourselves. The sermon will speak about how we need Adaptability (Water), Passion (Fire), Stability (Earth), and Ideals (Air) to bring forth change in ourselves and in the world around us. The service will be very kid-centric, but should appeal to adults as well. Trenton Ladler, of our Worship Ministry, will be in the pulpit.

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.

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 teen/youth seating area, 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.
