Sunday Service

"The Change we Choose"

led by Laurel Gray & our Repro Rights Group

This service will follow on the Oct. 9th service that our reproductive rights group led. We’ll share our findings from the risk assessment survey we did and imagine the ways forward. As Unitarian Universalists, we support bodily autonomy and will reflect together on how we, as a congregation, want to engage in change work.

Board Vista Letter

Greetings, friends. It’s my pleasure to bring you this month’s overview from the Board of Trustees of UUCSW. The “official” UU theme for November is Change, but as we all know, November is also a time to reflect on things we are thankful for.


At this month’s Board meeting we had a chance to look forward to some upcoming changes and to acknowledge many of the ways we should all be thankful as a UUCSW community.
