Coming Up Sunday

Worship Service at 10 a.m. Only

“Total Eclipse of the SUUn” – Rev. Molly Housh Gordon and DRE Jamila Batchelder

As Columbia prepares to experience a total solar eclipse on Aug. 21, join us in a multi-generational worship service to explore the science of the eclipse, the myths that ancient peoples have used to interpret the disappearance of the sun, and the awe and wonder of myth and science both!

Loaves and Fishes Dinner – Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church

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.

If you have questions, email Diane Suhler of the Social Action Team.


Attention! Volunteer opportunities for various tasks on Sunday morning are available!

Additional volunteers are needed to serve as collection teller, usher and greeter. Click the button below to sign up.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

We want your feedback!

The AIM (Accessibility and Inclusion Ministry) Team requests approximately eight minutes of your time to provide your opinion on accessibility at UUCC. The survey will be available on the church website through mid-September, and, along with the online survey, paper versions in regular and large-print will be available outside the sanctuary during the next four Sundays.

AIM Survey

Please help UUCC understand how it can better serve the needs of people with disabilities and diversabilities!  If you have questions contact Gretchen Maune or James Cutts.

Festival of Sharing Pizza Party Fundraiser, August 27 at 11:30 am.
