We hope you will join us as we worship together on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. and at Wednesday Vespers at 6:30 p.m. Lifespan Faith Development and other learning opportunities are available before and after church on Sundays and on Wednesdays, afternoon and evening. Our programming is rich and diverse and theologically expansive. We are a congregation that is committed to social justice and making a difference. We aspire to live up to our principles and the affirmation we teach our children: “We are Unitarian Universalists, with open minds, loving hearts, and helping hands. Together we care for the earth and work for friendship and peace in our world.”
Whoever you are, wherever you come from, whomever you love – you are welcome here!
Love Beyond Belief
What Does It Mean to Be a Friend of the Church?
One of the advantages that comes with being a Friend or Member of the church is access to the Members-and-Friends-only section of the website, where you can see the pictorial directory, birthday lists, and joys and concerns, among other items of interest.
FRIENDS ARE DEFINED BY THEIR:
___ ATTENDANCE at 3 Sunday services prior to their decision to become
___ COMMITMENT to active involvement in church life
___ AGREE to be canvassed during our annual pledge campaign
___ DESIRE to be listed in the UUCS directory (optional) and receive the Happenings (optional)
We also would encourage Friends to support our church during the year with their time, talents, and treasures.
If you have checked off the first three of the above criteria, we welcome you and celebrate your desire to be part of our community as a FRIEND.

This Week at UUCS
Wednesday, September 24, 2:00-3:30, Mind, Heart, Body and Spirit exercises and reflections.
Your Whole Self Crafts Day
We want to recognize mind, body, and spirit in these new programs. Our new crafts program will be a wonderful example of spirit and mind. We'll have a good time being together and creating something pretty. This month’s craft will be led by Palma Eisner. Learn how to turn tuna fish and/or dog food cans into “chair” pin cushions. Please bring in empty washed cans: Note: When opening the can DO NOT open the lid all the way, leave a part (about an inch) so that the lid will stand on its own. The lid will become the “back” of the chair. We will have supplies, such as fabric, thread, trims, scissors, and needles but if you have your own please bring them with you.
Wednesday, September 24, 6:30. Vespers: Family Friendly (Meaningful and Fun)
Wednesday, September 24, 7:00 Social Justice-Fellowship Hall
Wednesday, September 24, 7:15 Creative Expressions (all ages)-Hatcher House
Many of us remember making art as small children. Carving out that piece of floor or kitchen table or classroom and losing ourselves as we became engrossed in the task at hand. Immersed in a sea of paints, crayons, construction paper, brown paper bags and Popsicle sticks, all our senses were engaged. There are many routes to self-expression. Creativity can be explored through a variety of artistic disciplines. Commonly identified methods include drama, dance, music, creative writing and the visual arts, including photography. All of these activities engage the participant/artist in a process that uses a holistic health framework to access physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being. In this creative class we will be using scrapbooking techniques to create a UU Sacred Text. Using our Sources and Symbols along with our monthly theological themes each participant will complete their own scrapbook UU Sacred Text. This is a multigenerational experience. Children and Youth are invited to participate.
