UUCM is part of the Soul Matters Sharing Circle and uses a monthly theme from September to June to guide worship and religious education. For the upcoming church year, we will explore what it means to be a people of...
September: Embracing Possibility
October: Cultivating Relationship
November: Holding History
December: Opening to Joy
January 2022: Living with Intention
February: Widening the Circle
March: Renewing Faith
May: Nurturing Beauty
June: Celebrating Blessings
During the year we celebrate many important days in the liturgical calendar:
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.
