Welcome! We are glad you are checking us out. Our Sunday Services invite people of diverse religious or spiritual backgrounds and beliefs, as well as those who just don’t know, to find a deeper sense of meaning and purpose. Our Fellowship comes together to experience the wonder and awe of life; to learn, to grow, and to be challenged; to feel loved and belonging; and to find joy in gathering in community.

When & Where?

Our Sunday Services are held every week on Sunday at 10:00 AM. Our services typically last about an hour.

Services are in person at our Fellowship building, and attendees may join remotely through Zoom.

Everyone is welcome.

We believe in the inherent worth and dignity of every person and that no person should be dehumanized through acts of exclusion, oppression, or violence. UUFCC is a Welcoming Congregation. No matter where you come from, how you arrive, what you do for a living, or who your people are, you are welcome in this community. Everyone – Skeptic, Seeker or Believer; Elderly or Young; Disabled or Able; Gay, Straight, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning or Queer – has a place at UUFCC. Individuals and families are involved in the entire life of the congregation.

UUFCC services express a broad and diverse range of what it means to be human. We draw from many sources including Judaism, Christianity, Humanism, and Earth Centered Traditions. We also explore what it means to be human in a time of global crisis looking at values like equity, generosity, justice, pluralism, and interdependence. Love is our grounding and core principle.

Our services are welcoming and inclusive. They typically include lighting the chalice (symbol of Unitarian Universalism), along with a mixture of elements such as readings, stories or wisdom lessons, sharing of joys and sorrows and a thoughtful reflection or sermon. Music, including hymns, choral selections and offerings from musicians in our community, is also an important part of the service structure.

On three Sundays a month, the service is led by our Minister. We also offer lay-led services guided by a member of the congregation, and several times a year we have a visiting guest minister or speaker. During the summer, our minister is usually away for study and vacation, and so , Sunday services are written and conducted either by members of the Worship Committee, or by other members and/or friends of the Fellowship. By viewing worship as a shared project, we are upholding the original understanding of the word liturgy, which literally means “the work of the people.”

Our services are intentionally multigenerational allowing families to learn, worship, and grow together.

We spend too much time separating our communities by age – children in school, older people in retirement communities. Unitarian Universalist congregations all over the country are breaking this cycle. Multigenerational congregations are simultaneously congregations of the ancient past and the distant future. Multigenerational services are intentional, meaningful programs that not only engage each generation on its own level but also connect each generation with other generations. Taken to its highest potential, a fully multigenerational congregation would be a community where everyone, both young and old, is both teacher and learner; where every stage of life is valued and supported. Though we value our individual paths as UUs, research conducted over the past fifty years has found that trusted relationships are still key to our faith development. These relationships are not merely among those of our own generation, but of all generations. Children learn they have roots; a history to ground them. Parents benefit by receiving support, knowing that there are other adults who love their children and who are looking out for them. Elders benefit by re-connecting with a sense of joyful freedom. Multigen connections balance the need for intellectual stimulation with a childlike exuberance and sense of wonder.

Other Worship Opportunities

Soulful Sundown

Soulful Sundown

Join the Soulful Sundown Zoom meeting.

Soulful Sundown contemplative services are held biweekly on Wednesdays from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Zoom.

Each gathering considers a topic offered by that evening’s presenter, who also suggests one or two related questions for silent reflection or meditation. After the quiet, all who wish are invited to share their experiences and insights. Topics vary.

Soulful Sundown can be both restful and energizing. Participants have said it is “restorative,” … “brings balance to my soul” … “clears my mind.” The soulful sundown community offers supportive companionship on your spiritual journey.

Find upcoming service dates on the UUFCC Calendar, in the weekly e-news, or e-mail Linda Bryce, chair of Soulful Sundown to be added to a notification list for service dates, topics, and Zoom links for each gathering, or to suggest a future topic.

Wheel of the Year

Wheel of the Year

Held on Third Thursdays of the month at 7:00 PM.

Observing the cycle of the seasons is an important part of earth-centered practices and cultures. The Wheel Of The Year is the annual cycle of festivals marking the solstices and equinoxes and the midpoint seasons between.

On the third Thursday of the month (at the end of Fellowship Supper) at 7:00 PM, we celebrate with the ancients and moderns alike by observing the seasons, offering thanks, and celebrating through ritual, music, and poetry.
