Building a New Way

We have created experiences on Sunday Mornings that fill us with warmth and joy. Guests tell us it is palpable and fun. We have invited the community to come and love their lives with us. Especially in music. And we have every right to be grateful for the church we are becoming. Built on curiosity and freedom of conscience, and wrapped in compassion and kindness, we have embraced the Welcoming Congregation way of community. Our covenantal way of doing church asks us to always bring our best selves to our journey and never to rest on our successes. There are others on their way here, and we must be ready to expand our family to include them. It is time to dream of still a new way, and make it so.

November 2
Día De Los Muertos
Our Worship Ministry will help us celebrate Día de los Muertos with a special, child centered service. You are invited to bring photos of departed loved ones to place on our communal altar, and to share a brief memory or funny story about them. Remember that día de los muertos is not a mournful or somber occasion, but rather a celebration of life, death, love and relationships!

November 9
Don't Look Back
We all remember the biblical story in the Old Testament Book of Genesis where Lot's wife turns into a pillar of salt. The late, great Satchel Paige once said, “Don't Look Back, something might be gaining on you.” What is it about looking back? Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon. Fall Parish Meeting and Pot Luck Lunch to follow.

November 16
Finding Spiritual Depth
The original charge to this shared ministry was to deepen our spiritual journey. But, as liberal religious nomads, we often find in ourselves a reluctance to engage in the rituals and practices that could provide a robust and sustainable spirituality. Imagination and discipline are required. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon. New Member Class returns.

November 23
Thanksgiving
This annual celebration is an essential American tradition. At its best, it is also a glorious sacrament of sharing. This beautiful feast of life is the consummate example of ethical grace. We share the abundance of this human life so that in our household, no one goes hungry. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon. New Member Class to follow.

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 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.
