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.

Rumpelstiltskin: The Advent Story
The four Sundays before Christmas mark the time of Advent on the Christian calendar - a time of waiting and preparation. But waiting and preparation are not experiences exclusive to just one segment of the population. All our lives are filling with waiting and preparation of one sort or another. Maybe we still have something to learn from this hectic, polyglot season. Rev. Annie Foerster will preach the sermon.

December 14th
Do You Hear What I Hear?
The sounds of our Holy Days connect us in ways that can comfort us and envigorate us. Some of the sounds are new, yet most of them are ancient sounds that connect us to our past and to our people – those who went before us and those who walk with us still. And Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, begins Tuesday, Dec. 16th. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon. Christmas Party to follow!

December 21st
Come Love Your Lives With Us
We are now living longer than ever before. In the course of our modern lives, we will need to re-invent ourselves over and over again; to be re-born again and again. Building on successful incarnations is the key. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

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

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.

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.
