"Ten Bad Reasons to Join This Church"
The Rev. Suzelle Lynch
 
Being a Unitarian Universalist is AWESOME!

Today we take a tongue-in-cheek look at why you should NOT join UUCW. We also honor National Coming Out Day today.

The UUCW Choir will provide music for New Member Sunday.
CHURCH LIFE
Build 2020 Update

Due to this week's heavy rains, the installation of the main HVAC unit has been delayed.

This Sunday, Oct 6, there will be no heat in the Sanctuary. Please dress appropriately so you can be comfortable. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
What does it mean to be
“A People of Belonging”?

At UUCW, we believe that the shelter of belonging — the circle of belonging — needs to extend broadly.
Bring-a-Friend Sunday and
the UUCW Activity Fair
is October 6th!

This is the perfect opportunity to learn more about groups that interest you (or your friend) and discover ways you can get involved. Talk with group members and facilitators. All are welcome to explore, connect, and join.
Look for your Pledge Statement

It’s UUCW tradition to send only three Pledge Statements per fiscal year, beginning this month. The statement will remind you of the financial commitment you made to the church, and how much you’ve paid so far. Next week, watch for your statement in your postal mail or email. Thank you for your generosity!
