Welcome to our Sanctuary, a sacred space filled with beauty and spirit
where we gather in beloved community.
What happens on Sunday morning?
Beginning at both 9:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. from mid-September through May, each service is an offering of beauty and passion, a living symbol of life's questions and struggles, and a guide for living our values. Through worship, we connect to both the universal and the singular, the outer and inner realms of life. From June until mid-September, we hold one service on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m.
Each service weaves together sermon, music, poetry, silence, prayer and meditation, children's stories, and the congregation's joys and sorrows. The result is a Sunday experience of harmony and diversity where we explore many possible paths to wisdom, connection, and changing the world. You may read more about our upcoming services here.
Services are full of music to lift our spirits, and usually include two or three hymns and music from a choir (our adult, children's, or women's choir) or a guest soloist or ensemble. View samples of our Order of Service here.
Between the worship services, enjoy coffee and conversation during Fellowship Hour and participate in our Middle Hour Faith Formation offerings.
What holidays does UUCR celebrate?
We are a church of affirmation, not of doctrine or creed. Our worship draws from many sources, including Judeo-Christian, Humanist, Buddhist, Muslim, and earth-centered traditions. We value symbol, metaphor, story, and ritual. Some of our special events form our calendar of rituals and celebrations.
Is there Sunday School?
Religious education (our version of Sunday School) is held most Sundays after the First Fifteen in each worship service (for children) and during Middle Hour (for youth).
First Fifteen - Some weeks, they attend the first 15 minutes of the Sunday service with the adults.
Children/Youth Worship - Other weeks, the children and youth hold a short worship service, just for them.
Nursery care is provided for the youngest children and infants.
What should I wear?
Wear whatever makes you comfortable. Many adults wear "weekday casual," though some wear suits and others wear jeans. Children should be dressed for outdoor activities and art projects.
