You’re Welcome

Creating a welcoming congregation is not always easy, as people often want different things. How can we practice generosity of spirit in communities and help people with different backgrounds feel welcome?

Welcome Back?

What does it mean to be a “covenantal” faith in other parts of our lives – with family? Friends? Church? How do we forgive, reconcile, and create boundaries that help us all create a welcoming environment in all the places of our lives?

Water Ceremony

In our annual Water Ceremony, we welcome back Rev. Sian, welcome in Wendy, our new intern and we let go with our blessing, Beth, our Director of Music Ministries. What do you want to welcome in this year and lovingly let go of? Remember to bring water from someplace special for you to add to our community water. Symbolic water will also be provided.

Linda S. led us in some watercolor experimentation using eye droppers, which was fun and engaging for the kids. Maureen M. joined us for some woodworking, and each child got to make their own wooden car! Barbara M. did origami…

Fall at OCUUC

I love Fall at OCUUC. Although our fiscal year started two months ago, it feels like a beginning. Rev. Sian will be back, our new intern, Wendy Karn, will be starting, and we have so many exciting events coming up. It will be busy, and we will use it to transform our lives and communities by living our Principles. That is our mission! We will celebrate transitions, explore new ways to make a difference, and enjoy being together. We will…

A vision for our future, let’s make it happen


Many of us give of our time, many of us give of our resources, most of us do both. We are what we can do together.
