Our Sunday Services begin at 10:00am.

Journey to a New Church

There is both Prose and Poetry in the life of our Liberal Faith tradition. It calls us, not only to dream of human improvement, it expects us to create a sanctuary where Joy abides – where Justice-Seeking becomes real. It calls us all to a spirited, eclectic feast, filled with fun. Just like our Wayside Pulpit proudly declares. Come all ye faithful, come build a New Church!

Service Schedule – May, 2017

April 30th
Celebrate Spring and the renewal of the Earth. Including a special flower communion. (Please bring a fresh flower.) Darvin Stephens will be in the pulpit.

Followed by the 2nd Annual Maypole and Beltane Picnic. The festival will include a fire ritual, crafting, face painting, a mandala coloring contest, maypole dance, and music. Festive dress is encouraged.

May 7th
Sisyphus, or Salmon
As Unitarian Universalists, there is often an unnerving truth to the communities we form. We too often succumb to the blocked pathways of our journey. Sometimes it is not fully risking the love required for the fulfillment of a ‘beloved community’; sometimes it is not accepting the call of spirit that would have us participate more fully in our days together. Rev. Mark Walz will preach the sermon.

May 14th
Hannah, the Ideal Mother
Rev. Larry Brumfield will preach the sermon.

May 21st
On the Road Again
This might not be heaven, but we’re on the road. Renee Brill will preach the sermon. Our Spring Parish Meeting will follow the service.

UUCOC turns 56 years old. Happy Birthday!

May 28th
Alice Paul: Champion of the 19th Amendment
Robertus van der Wege will speak on the life and work of Alice Paul. Alice Paul was foremost a devout Quaker, and it was that faith which colored her abiding efforts to utilize non-violent methods in gaining the right of American women to vote. After Henry David Thoreau's defining essay on civil disobedience in 1849, two great campaigns emerged in the 20th century that would test his hypothesis, Gandhi's struggle to gain independence for India and Alice Paul's efforts to win women's suffrage. This sermon will examine the history of the later and consider why the lessons of that time may be applicable today.

Please consider coming dressed in your finest early 1900s attire for this special 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.

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.
