UUCM offers Sunday services at 10:00 AM. Child and Youth RE is held during Worship Service, following the beginning portion of the worship service,  starting around 10:15 AM.  After the service there is a fellowship time in the Community Room and in the Sanctuary.


Childcare: Childcare is generally open Sundays from 9:45-11:15 AM in the Spruce Room, for children birth-kindergarten. The predominant curriculum for this age group is love, security and safety. When preschoolers and kindergartners attend, there will also be stories and activities from the theme-based Soul Matters curriculum.


Kindergarten – 12th grade students start in worship with their families. Around 10:15 AM the children are “sung out” of the service to head downstairs to their classrooms. Parents of younger students are invited to walk their children to class. RE classes are scheduled to go until 11:15 AM. Students 3rd grade and younger need to picked up from their classroom by their parent/guardian.

THE JANUARY SOUL MATTERS THEME IS INTEGRITY


Sunday, January 19 at 10:00 AM 

Integrity: The Content of Our Character 

In his famous "I have a dream" speech, Dr. Martin Luther King stated, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."  How's that dream being lived out for Dr. King's children, grandchildren?  Reflections on integrity and race by Joyce Lyons Tregaskis and Meg Riley. 

Worship Leader: Rev. Meg Riley

Worship Associate: Joyce Lyons Tregaskis

The Board of Trustees is delighted and excited to announce a unique approach to having an Interim Minister while we begin preparing for the arrival of UUCM's next settled minister. Instead of one minister we'll have a team of three experienced and skilled people assisting us beginning August 1st, 2018.  Please click here to meet the new Interim Ministry Team and full details.

Music Ministry

Music is a big part of Sunday Worship  Service at UUCM. Our music director, Paul Winchester, brings a lively  array of genres from folk to rock,  jazz to classical, and occasionally a little rap!  


Music is especially celebrated annually each spring with Music Sunday where the worship service is led by our Music, the service is alive with loud and vibrant music! 


The UUCM Band plays many times throughout the year, and includes drums, bass, acoustic guitar, and cello. 


UUCM also has a large and talented choir. They sing about once a month, and rehearsal about three times a  month. Once or twice a year, an Invitational Choir is assembled for  people who wish to sing in the choir but not make a permanent commitment. 


Musical performances and recruitment of guest musicians is also facilitated by the Church Council Music Ministry team, led by Sam Brandt and supported by Cathy Bujold.
