Flower Communion and Bridging

This service is the Unitarian Universalist multi-generational tradition of “Flower Communion.” If you are new to Unitarian Universalism, it’s a lovely tradition about embracing our diversity of thought and person by building a bouquet of flowers, with each person bringing a flower to add to the bouquet. We also lift up the bridging of our youth to adulthood this day.

The Root Causes of Addiction

Beth Syverson shared her own journey with addiction, plus her son Joey and others from the church shared their stories as well. Beth helped us ponder the root causes of addiction, and suggested ways we as a community can help those who are affected by its pull. Their stories are full of hope for those suffering.

Success isn’t about having the most money or the biggest church. Success can be measure by how well we deal with change and embrace new information.

Marking Underground Utilities

On Friday a representative from our new sanctuary project’s civil engineering firm was on the OCUUC campus to locate all the underground utilities. This is an important step beginning with the project’s demolition phase later this year so the contractor will know which utilities need to be capped and avoided. If you were at the church service on Sunday you may have noticed a lot of various colored dots painted on the courtyard and the parking area. This is the…

Learning from Experience

Memorial Day is often referred to as the unofficial start of summer and this year it has even more special significance at OCUUC as we open the church for in-person Sunday services and we head out on long-delayed travel for the first time since March 2020. You can rest assured, however, that your Sanctuary Construction Committee will continue on the forward path to bring the new sanctuary plans to reality. We gather on Zoom from places near and far to…

Giving

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.
