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 a still newer way. What if this new Welcoming Way was through Social Witness?

March 29th
Boys in Crisis: The Silent Epidemic
Boys growing up in our culture face challenges that may be overlooked, or even minimized. Let's break the barriers, honor their stories, and support a healthy masculinity for all boys and men. This service will be presented by Stephen & Rachel Betzen and our Worship Ministry.

April 5th
Easter Sunday
Easter is a celebration that crosses most all religious boundaries, gathering the world up in its festival of resurrection, rebirth, and re-creation. It reconciles our relationship with the Universe and with each other. It provides the promise of a wiser, deeper covenant for us all. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon and serve a traditional Communion.

April 12th
Render Unto Caesar
It is that time again when the Ides of April bring the IRS filing deadline. How do you feel about filing a tax return and paying taxes to support our governments and the safety nets they provide? Are our tax-funded entities doing the will of the people? Are they responding as stewards to the world that gives us life? Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

April 19th
Healthcare at Bethesda
The concept of compassionate healthcare for the masses is an ancient concept. This service will be presented by Rev. Larry Brumfield and our Worship Ministry.

April 26th
It's been argued that Religion is the most powerful and pervasive force on earth. When at their best religions have inspired communities to put aside too-narrow self interests and pursue their higher values. Religions have also harmed more people than any other cultural impulse. They have incited war, slavery, and genocide. Religions can turn evil. 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.
