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 – December, 2016

December 4th
Can I Sing When The Going Gets Tough
It is hard for complacent bourgeois folk who have suffered little to understand the tenacity of affronted memory among the brutalized. Rev. Larry Brumfield will preach the sermon.

December 11th
Children's Service
This Sunday we will enter into covenant with the children and youth of this church. Come make it holy, with your presence, your promise, your vow of peace and protection for these precious souls who do church with us. Our annual Christmas Party with potluck, and white elephant gift frenzy, follows!

December 18th
The Gift We Most Crave
What was it we most longed for as children? What is it we now have the power to give to others but often withhold? "Blessing" is a simple word with great significance. Come and explore ways we each seek, give, and receive blessings and the difference it can make. Our guest, Julie Cecil, will preach the sermon.

December 24th
Christmas Eve
The Tanwars, Tracy and Vijay, and friends bring us a traditional Christmas Eve Service in a very special way. The service will begin at 7:30 in the evening and be shared in English and in Spanish.

December 25th
Christmas Day
It may be only me, but I need Christmas this year more than ever. Hanukkah began last night and Kwanzaa begins tomorrow. Just in time for a renewal of joy and promise in the wonderful Unitarian-Universalist way. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the Sermon.

January 1st
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.
