MICAH and UUCW needs You!


As a member of MICAH, UUCW has two people on its board. Stephanie Richardson is stepping down from the board after faithful service for over 6 years. Thank you, Stephanie, for your years of service and dedication. One of the duties of a MICAH Board member is to attend monthly meetings, which are online, then share the information with the congregation. If you might be interested in being on the board, please contact Joyce Cable, MICAH board member. Joyce will be in the community room after service.

Care About Abortion? Care for UUs. Care for Us!"

22.05.022 Reproductive bug.jpg

Kaleidoscope will offer inspiring songs of determination and protest.

The Rev. Denise Cawley


Wisconsin will be one of the states that will lose access to abortion in June. There are larger issues at risk that more forms of birth control will be revoked as well as what right-wing, conservative-leaning ideologists see as ‘identity politics’ like same-gender marriage, access to transgender medicine, and rights for LGBTQ people and women. All of these have a devastating impact on the real people we love. Limiting access to body autonomy and democracy, are of deep concern to Unitarian Universalist people.
