All newcomers and visitors are warmly invited to drop in for a Newcomer Chat, which will generally take place every Second Sunday September-May in Building 2, Room 23 during Middle Hour (10:15 a.m.) for informal conversation. A Newcomer Chat is an opportunity to ask the questions you're most curious about, whether they be about UUCR in particular or Unitarian Universalism more broadly. Information will be made available for upcoming classes or other opportunities to learn more about our faith community. Do join us! Questions? Email Adrian Graham.

Come journey with fellow seekers and travelers! Members and lay leaders alternate faciliating these conversations, with occasional drop-ins by one of our ministers. No sign-up necessary.

Communal drumming returns to UUCR!
In the drum circle we discover how deeply connected we really are. Grooving together, our individuality finds expression within the whole - free of conflict or compromise. And it’s really FUN!!!
If you’ve ever tapped your foot to a song on the radio you have all the rhythm you need to share in the healing power of communal drumming. No experience is required and you need not bring a drum (though by all means bring one or any other percussion instrument if you choose).
Children under age 12 should be accompanied by an adult. Children under age 7 may not find communal drumming engaging, but are welcome to try it out.
Come groove with us!
Meets on the first Wednesday of each month (exception: January 8, 2020) from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Room 52 & 53.

Open to the public and in a coffeehouse-style atmosphere, Socrates Café Rockville facilitates a number of philosophic discussions in small to mid-sized groups (6 to 10 people) for each question, conducted loosely in the style of Plato's Socratic dialogues. Participants themselves generate the questions to be discussed each time and can expect to leave with a clearer understanding of others' positions, as well as their own, on questions of significant moral or ethical import.
There is no cost to attend and no sign up required. Come when you can. Bring a friend. Contact Jon Landenburger to learn more.
