Re-Creation

Twelve years ago we took a bold step by changing the name of our congregation from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Dallas to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Oak Cliff. Bold because it required us to leave the comfort of the Fellowship movement, accept the more formal responsibilities inherent in the name 'Church,' and seek a stronger presence in the religious conversation of North Texas. The intervening years gave witness to our transformation. Together we have achieved a Fearless Spirituality. Today we stand confident in our ability to embrace our neighbors and welcome their journeys into ours.

This Church is now a covenantal community fired by curiousity and in search of a constantly improving extended family. Join us in a year of Re-Creation, as we re-invent ourselves yet again.

June 22nd
Pastor Larry Brumfield
On June 19, 1865 (two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation), Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war — and slavery — had ended. We recognize this day as UUCOC member and pastor Larry Brumfield takes the pulpit.

June 29
Pro-Death/Pro-Life
Giving sustainability to Social Justice means trying to actually make things better in this world. This Wednesday, July 2nd marks the 38th anniversary of the re-instatement of the death penalty by the United States Supreme Court. 18 states and the District of Columbia have outlawed the death penalty. Since Texas resumed the practice on December 7, 1982, we have led the nation in executions with 515. Will it ever end? - Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

July 6
Patriotism
We all want our nation to be the best it possibly can be. But empty slogans and mindless flag-waving isn't real patriotism. True Patriotism can help and support our efforts and knee-jerk patriotism like Open-Carry has the ability to distract us from our best path and hinder or even arrest our progress completely. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

July 13
Deep Ecumenism
The wisdom with which our forefathers crafted our U.S.Constitution is nowhere more apparent than in the phrases 'freedom of religion' and 'no religious tests.' They give us the collective space to explore our own journeys to spiritual wholeness and the inalienable right to change our mind on the way. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

July 20
Learning To Dance With Chaos And Joy
The excitement of urban life can take its toll. It can bring danger and it can bring joy. Do you find your nervous system vibrating to something unknown and beyond your control? If you simplified your goals, clarified your focus, and embraced the chaos, could you dance to its rhythms without feeling foolish? Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

July 27
Saying Yes
Renée Brill, of our Worship Ministry (and student at Starr King School for the Ministry) will take the pulpit.

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.

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 teen/youth seating area, 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.
