Our Sunday Services begin at 10:00am.

Journey to Joy & Wholeness

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 sympathy 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. Our human lives are meant to be experienced joyfully.

Service Schedule – October, 2016

October 2nd
The Pursuit of Happiness
Sister Mary Tricky says, “If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you.” Yet, sometimes being happy is risky. We may know some who are suspicious of happy people, who feel that being with 'happy' people is just too much pressure. There is a rumor, however, that Happiness is exactly what the Creator had in mind for us all along. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

October 9th
The Gifts of St. Francis
Our annual tribute to the Unitarian Universalist Covenantal Statement, We affirm and promote the Interconnected Web of Life, of which We are a Part. Our service is dedicated to celebrating the Inherent Worth and Dignity of every living thing, especially the magnificent creatures we share our lives with. Please feel free to bring your well-behaved and well-managed pets to church. Blessing of the Animals will follow in the Gazebo after service. Robertus van der Wege will preach the sermon.

October 16th
You Never Know
It is difficult to avoid judging people by the emotions they display. Western society has trained us to expect and perceive emotions in certain ways. Carol Stephens and our Worship Ministry will offer a different view in terms of covenant.

October 23rd
On Making A Covenant With Your Strategic Self-Importance
The premise of this sermon is that God's redeeming power can use our denials, excuses and feelings of inadequacy as a birth canal of a covenant with ones own strategic self-importance. Rev. Larry Brumfield and our Worship Ministry will present the service.

October 30th
To Welcome Darkness: In a world that worships Light, what is Darkness and why do we need it? A tribute to the waning year. Sarah Ricke and our Worship Ministry will present the service.

November 6th
Día de los Muertos
Tracy & Vijay Tanwar and our Worship Ministry will present the service.

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.
