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!

Thursday, October 23, POLOs Meeting from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. in the Nursery.
A group called POLOs is meeting twice a month at UUCS to give parents and little ones some social time together. Please bring a small breakfast-y snack to share (like fruit, pastry, etc.). Meetings are on second and fourth Thursdays from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. in the nursery. See Tracy S. for more information: (email@example.com).
Friday, October 24, Lunch Bunch, 1:15 at Panera at Hillcrest
Saturday, October 25, 7:00 p.m., Coffeehouse with Pat Jobe
Activist/author/singer/songwriter/musician/minister Pat Jobe will headline the October UUCS Expresso Yourself Coffeehouse. The guitar-picking preacher, who once served as summer minister at UUCS, has entertained our congregation many times with his folksy storytelling and sideways sense of humor. As is our custom, the first portion of the evening will be open mic-so all you performers, get your material ready. We ask that you hold your performances to two songs or about five minutes so that everyone who wishes to perform gets their turn in the spotlight. Admission is a suggested $5 donation, which includes pastries and coffee. Performers get in free, as, without you, we wouldn’t have a show! Please also remember to bring non-perishable food items for our TOTAL Ministries food barrel, which helps struggling families in our area.
