Your First Visit
Until February 10th, OCUUC will be located on a beautiful hilltop location in Costa Mesa near Brookhurst and Hamilton, here is the map. Parking is in front of the church and the Viva Life Sciences lot next door. Handicap parking spaces are at the end of the church driveway.
On February 17th, we will start holding services at our new location at 2845 Mesa Verde East in Costa Mesa. The campus is at the corner of Adams Ave. and Mesa Verde Dr. East, sharing Adams Ave. and Mesa Verde Drive East driveways with visible businesses such as Torelli Realty and Piecemakers Country Store. Look for the brown buildings in the rear corner of the center, labeled 2845. You’ll find marked handicap parking stalls on the North side of the campus.
Located on our patio is the Welcome Table where you will be greeted warmly by a member of our community. Please fill out a Guest Information form, make a name tag, and pick up information about our congregation and Unitarian Universalism.
Pick up an Order of Service with readings, hymn numbers, announcements and the upcoming calendar. Sit where you are most comfortable. Our services last about an hour and include opening words, visitor welcome, congregation and choir singing, an offering, and a sermon.
We hold two services on Sunday morning. The first is a more traditional, contemplative service that starts at 9:45 am. The second is a family-friendly, more energetic service that starts at 11:15 am. During the summer, we sometimes hold only one service that combines elements of the two services.
After each service, everyone meets in the social hall or patios for coffee and conversation.
Patio tables have information about: social justice and adult programs, Religious Education for Children and Youth, the Young Adult Group. There is also a chance to browse the UU bookstore or purchase gift cards for many businesses at the Scrip table.
