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.

December 24th
'Twas the Night Before Christmas
Our traditional Christmas Eve Service highlighting our Children – with stories, parables, drama, candlelight, beautiful music, and a very special Communion. This is an evening service that will begin at 7PM.

December 28th
Universe Leading by Strange Pathes - A Commentary on Exodus
The new year is a time of assessment and aspirations, a time of renewal and fresh commitment, it is also a time in which we find ourselves wondering what lies ahead? Pastor Larry Brumfield will be in the pulpit.

January 4th
Happy New Year
In many cultures the end of one year and the beginning of the next requires the settling of all debts; clearing the slate; and setting a new course for a new adventure. Today's service will include the 'Two Cookie Communion' from our pagan traditions. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

January 11th
Ethical Grace
The second President Roosevelt famously said, “The only thing we have to fear...is fear itself.” Yet fear has been the driving force for most of this new century. Since 9/11, too many decisions have been driven by fear and the repercussions weigh heavy on our hearts. Can grace, ethical grace, drive our fears away and restore our integrity? Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

January 18th
Minimum Wage
This month will bring an abundance of deserved tributes to, and remembrances of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. He dreamed of a new 'ethical grace' for all of us and his vision for a better America was focused in many directions. We must never forget that at the heart of his dream was a better life for working America. To truly honor him we must continue his vital work. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

January 25th
Doubting Thomas
"Throughout my Faith/Pastoral life I have railed against the right wing for hijacking the Christian Scriptures and good people of Faith not reclaiming them for love, peace and goodwill." Pastor Larry Brumfield will present 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.

Worship Ministry member Renee Brill in the pulpit

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.
