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.

The UUCS Theological Discussion Group will meet to share ideas, understanding, and responses to sermons, essays, or readings written by 19th- and 20th-century theologians. We will choose material which helps us look at the questions: “Is a UU theology possible? Does it matter? How does the reading material inform our own theological response to life?” In September, Cindy Howe and Monnie Cannon will lead the discussion on Paul Tillich’s book The Dynamics of Faith. This short book is available at amazon.com for $5.00 to $12.00. We look forward to hearing your ideas and responses to Paul Tillich’s material.

Wednesday, September 17, 7:15 Reading the Bible from the Margins: Room 5
A basic guide to reading the Bible from the perspective of the poor, oppressed, and marginalized. This is provocative introduction to hermeneutics that emphasizes how issues of race, class, and gender influence our reading and understanding of the Bible. Reading the Bible from the Margins begins where other texts fail to go: with the perspectives of those who society ignores. In this class we will explore how traditional or standard ways of approaching the Bible can be unacceptable to those who are discriminated against, and that the insights and understandings of biblical texts "from the “margins" are enriching and valuable to all.
