Stewardship 2018 – Weaving Our Future Together
Two Worship Services – 9 and 11 a.m.
“This I Believe” – UUCC Members
A pagan, an atheist, and a Christian walk into a church… and share their thoughts from our pulpit! We claim to be a congregation of radical welcome and religious pluralism, but we don’t always get the chance to explore the true theological diversity of our congregation. Join us this morning to hear about the beliefs and meaningful spiritual language and practices of several very different church members.

Our Social Action Team organizes volunteers to provide the evening meal at the Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen on the third Sunday each month. Click the button below to sign up to prepare food for this meal and/or to help set up, serve, and clean up.
Please submit receipts for all food items, and some or all of your expenses may be reimbursed by the church. Food items should be delivered to Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church, 702 Wilkes Blvd., by 4:45 p.m. Please do not leave food items for Loaves and Fishes at UUCC because of the difficulty of transporting these items. It is best to use disposable cooking pans (available in the UUCC kitchen) rather than cookware that must be returned to the owners.
