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 – December 2015

November 29th
I Can't Hold my Peace
Rev. Larry Brumfield and our Worship Ministry will be presenting the service. Derived from the writings of Luke the physician - he comments about the natural tension in leadership & growth. Embracing & Retreating. As we approach the new year we need to be like Ms. Patty LaBelle with "New Attitude"?

December 6th
Comfort in Joy
For everything there is a season. Our human journeys are complex mysteries, lived in isolation and in community. We are challenged to accept the changes that are inevitable, in our communities, in our families, and in ourselves. Gabrielle West will provide our Special Music, and our Dramatic Moment. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

December 13th
O Come All Ye Faithful
The sounds of our Holy Days connect us in ways that comfort us and envigorate us. Our UUCOC Choir lead us in a celebration of our traditional, seasonal, holiday music. Pot Luck Dinner, White Elephant Gift Exchange and Christmas Party to follow!

December 20th
The Mystery of Christmas
There's a great deal we know about Christmas. But there's a lot we don't know. Christmas is shrouded in mystery and part of it does not seem to add up. The account of the Annunciation in Luke's Gospel we find fear. Unexplainable events and lots of questions?

December 24th
'Twas the Night Before Christmas
Our traditional Christmas Eve Service highlights 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 27th
One More Circle Round the Sun
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.
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.
