"What Do We Hold On To? - Navigating Unwelcome Change"
Led by Jill Braithwaite, Ministerial Intern
It’s a truism that change is the only constant in life. Much of it comes to us unbidden and unwelcome. What can we hold on to when life throws unwanted changes at us? What values or practices make a difference as we navigate unwelcome paths?

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 the following themes:
September 2022: Belonging
January 2023: Finding Our Center
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.
