Our Sunday Services begin at 10:00am.


Compassion


We are called to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We hold that each is a unique individual, precious in his or her own right, entitled to be received by loving arms and to be guided with empathy and respect. These affirmations apply to our children as well. We take it as a duty incumbent on us all to provide love, care, and support so that our children may grow to be confident in themselves, and joined to a larger humanity that loves all life. Through our Worship Services, we deepen our journey.

Service Schedule – January, 2017

January 1st
I Can Sing Alone, But I'd Rather Not
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 8th
Enhanced By Joy
Nelson Mandela once said that the opposite of poverty is not wealth...that the opposite of poverty is justice. That this is real life; not a rehearsal. Nor a movie or a play. That we determine the value of this real life by what we do and how we do it. Everything is enhanced by joy. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

January 15th
Crushed Kingdoms and Kingdom Dreams
Sometimes at night, about 90 minutes after you fall asleep, your brain will come alive with a crack of mental electricity. For the next 6 - 8 hours you'll experience a process called dreaming. Rev. Larry Brumfield will preach the sermon.

January 22nd
Rise Up!
Rev. Dr. Thandeka is the Affect Theologian in Residence at Andover Newton Theological School, is an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister and congregational consultant, and an Emmy award-winning television producer. She is the creator of the Love Beyond Belief™ initiative for progressive congregations and the founder of Contemporary Affect Theology, which is designed to explain emotional development in religious settings and terms.

January 29th
T.B.A.
Renee Brill and our Worship Ministry 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.

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.
