Our Sunday Services begin at 10:00am.

Journey to Compassion

Our children will live in the world we leave them. They will live with the problems we have not solved or handled. We cannot tell them how to live in that future. But they are learning from us right now. What values, what lessons are they learning as we create a religious community with them?

In our beloved community 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 that 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. Let us begin a deepening of that journey.

Service Schedule – June, 2016

May 29th
The Ecstasy of the Earth
Socrates said that the greatest way to live with honor is to be what we pretend to be. Memorial Day is a time of needed reflection and an opportunity to engage in vibrant imaginings. As we remember how we arrived at this moment, let us trust in an Earth that welcomes us back to it, while directing our path to a an even deeper love for it. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the Sermon.

June 5th
Rev. A. Powell Davies
Born on this day in 1902, Powell Davies was one of the most influential Unitarian Ministers of the 20th Century. A brilliant speaker, he preached to overflow congregations, worked to end segregation in the nation's capital, and opposed Sen. Joseph McCarthy's persecution of Americans associated with the Communist Party. His funeral in 1957 was attended by three sitting Supreme Court Justices. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

June 12th
I've Been to the Zoo
In Edward Albee's play, The Zoo Story, his protagonist's first line is, “I've been to the Zoo.” What follows is a provocative adventure into the realm of isolation, and attempts to re-claim our affinity with the animal kingdom. It doesn't end well. Can we change the outcome? Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

June 19th
Father's Day
It is essential to honor this day with reflections of Fatherhood, Brotherhood, Grandfatherhood and how it feels to be a son or daughter on this day. Father is a concept that points us in many directions. Today, Rev. Mark Walz & Friends will share the way to a few.

June 26
How to Throw a Party
Our Worship Ministry and Rev. Larry Brumfield 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.
