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 Forum 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.  After the service there is a fellowship time in the Community Room. As we do not currently have a settled minister, Sunday services are lead by our Worship Associates and guest speakers.

Upcoming Services

The Theme for April is EMERGENCE.

Let mystery have its place in you; do not be always turning up your whole soil with the plowshare of self-examination, but leave a little fallow corner in your heart ready for any seed the winds may bring, and reserve a nook of shadow for the passing bird; keep a place in your heart for the unexpected guests, an altar for an unknown God. 

- Henri-Frederic Ariel

Ministerial Transition

UUCM is currently in a transition period between ministers so throughout the summer we will be lay-led by our Worship Associates and guest speakers. The application process for an Interim Minister is underway, with an expected start date of August 1, 2018. The search for a settled minister will take place over the next year or two. Click here for a full description of how the process works, along with several videos to view. The UUA "Transitional Ministry Handbook - A Guide for Congregations and Ministers" PDF document, which has a full explanation of the process, is posted at the bottom of this page for download.

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.
