Welcome to the church nurturing spirit and service – a liberal religious voice lighting a moral beacon in Central Missouri. In the spirit of courageous love, we forge a community of radical welcome and deep connection that moves us together to heal the world. We invite you to join us.
At our May 13, 2018 worship services, the offertory was an original composition
by Sam Otten titled “Better Days.” It was performed by the UUCC Band, with
Sam Otten on piano, Alan Arnold on saxophone and Sam Buffaloe on drums.
Worship Service – Special Time: 9 a.m.
“Live from General Assembly”
On June 24 our worship service will start at 9 a.m. instead of the usual summer time of 10:30 a.m. because we will be live-streaming the Sunday Morning Worship at the UUA General Assembly in Kansas City. The service will end at 10:30 a.m.
Plan to virtually join the more than 3,000 UUs who will worship at G.A. under the leadership of the Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, the first elected woman president of the UUA. She was lead minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Phoenix from 2008 to 2017 and previously served as minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Youngstown, Ohio.
The worship service will feature the General Assembly Choir led by Anne Watson Born, who is the Director of Music Ministry at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Newton.
If you are unable to attend church in person on June 24, you can view the live stream by going to https://www.uua.org/ga/off-site/watching/sunday. If you cannot watch the service at 9 a.m., it will be available shortly after 10:30 a.m. on YouTube.

9 to 10:30 a.m. – Children’s Religious Education – Lower Level
Children’s R.E. will begin at 9 a.m. on June 24 to coincide with the special worship time.
Our summer R.E. classes focus on the UU Seventh Principle – our interconnection with nature. We are offering two classes during our worship service time:
• The older children (3rd-8th grade) will be learning about deepening their connection to the earth, exploring spiritual practices, close observation, and ways we can care for the earth. In particular, we will focus on our relationship with the beautiful land upon which our church sits.
• Younger children will be in our Montessori Spirit Play classroom, this summer with a focus on stories of earth-based religions and lessons on our 7th principle.
Both classes will be outside as much as is possible.
9 to 10 a.m. – Forum Adult Discussion – Lower Level-Library/Forum Room
