"Paying Attention to Our History
(So We Won't Repeat It)"
The Rev. Suzelle Lynch

We Unitarian Universalists have a proud history of religious radicalism and putting our values into action for the greater good. Let's take a fast romp through it to see what we can learn — including a view towards how we and our faith are still unfolding. 

Today we honor Transgender Day
of Remembrance.

Special music today from Kaleidoscope our UU Worship Band.
Join us for
New Member Sunday!

Come and extend a warm welcome to UUCW’s newest members on November 17th

We will also celebrate November Membership Anniversaries.
Offer a Blessing or Wish
for UUCW!

Calling all hymnals home!
Now that there's only one Sunday service, we need to inventory the hymnals and determine whether additional copies need to be purchased. If you have a hymnal at home, please return it to the hymnal shelves as soon as possible.

If you'd like to have a hymnal at home, you can purchase a copy from the UUA Bookstore.
Who Are those
Camera People?
Two friendly volunteer photographers have been capturing the fun and special moments during worship at UUCW in recent months. They are doing a great job!
