We gather together in spiritual community because we need constant reminders of what matters most in life. In a world of joy and heartbreak, celebration and dehumanization, our congregations and communities call us to our better selves. We learn to live with more wisdom, more connection, and more compassion.
Our Worship Services are weekly reflections that weave together our own thoughts and experiences with music, beauty, poetry, and words that both comfort and challenge. Our programs for all ages inspire us, and awaken us to our capacities to make a difference in our own lives and in the world.
“Singing the Journey”
Our 2016-2017 annual theme holds great possibility for an exciting year at UUCG: Singing the Journey invites us to explore the ways we “harmonize” with our voices, as well as with our time, talents, and treasures on our journey towards being the radically welcoming sanctuary in a green space we envision. Our programs this year will be built on monthly themes based on beloved songs from our hymnals, inviting us to go deeper into the stories, metaphors, and meanings in the words we sing.
