UUCMC Adopts an Eighth Principle, Committing to Dismantle Racism

Our congregation adopted an Eighth Principle at its congregational meeting on March 14, committing members to work to dismantle racism. The 8th Principle affirms and promotes “journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”

Community has become even more important in these challenging times.

On Sunday mornings at 10:30am we gather on zoom to light our chalice, hear announcements and visit with each other in small groups to check-in, and to discuss a reflection question. It is easy and fun to join in, and ALL are welcome! You can get connection information by signing up for our email, or by contacting the office at uucmc@uucmc.org.

Our Sunday morning Service videos can be accessed at your convenience on our website Worship page or YouTube channel (CLICK HERE).

Dialog happens on TUESDAY evenings at 7pm; check our Dialog page for more information and the schedule.

The weekly service link and community hour link are sent out via email each week. In addition, our weekly eblast that comes out on Thursday mornings has loads of information about UUCMC happenings. If you are not already on our email list, click the button in the footer to sign up. Our Facebook page (click here) is also updated as information unfolds.

We hope you will join us in community from the safety of your homes.
