Sunday Services

 The Unitarian Universalist Church of Minnetonka offers Sunday services at 10:00 AM. During the school year, the time preceding the morning Worship Service, from 9:00 AM to 9:45 AM is "First Hour"  offering a myriad of possibilities such as adult education, meditation,  musical sing-a-longs, etc. Child and Youth RE is held during Worship  Service, following the beginning portion of the worship service,  starting around 10:15 AM. Our minister, Rev. Kent Hemmen Saleska,  preaches most Sundays, but from time to time, a guest speaker or member or Worship Associate is featured. After the service there is a fellowship time in the Community Room.

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  and Choir Directors, 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  has a large and talented choir and is led by  Director Mark Brekke. The  choir sings about once a month, and they 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.
