Goals & Purposes for OCUUC's New Sanctuary

Develop a sanctuary that:

  • Provides worship space that is meditative, tranquil, spiritual, and inspirational
  • Allows for fostering growth of the congregation and increases our influence in Orange County
  • Promotes community outreach through church-hosted concerts, film series, educational opportunities, and lectures
  • Provides for opportunities to generate rental revenue by serving as a site for weddings, memorial services, etc. and for sharing worship space with other congregations.
