OUR MINISTRIES

Sunday Seminar

Any adult or teen is welcome to attend our Sunday Seminar, a part of our Religious Exploration (RE) program.

We normally meet Sundays 9:00-10:15 am (gathering at 8:45 am) in the Nichols Library, but for now meets on Zoom . We are respectful, funny, and enthusiastic learners. Those who attend decide on the topics and present them to the group.

After the presentation everyone has an opportunity to reflect on it. The topics are quite varied and have included UU issues about economic justice, Radical Judaism, near-death experiences, the latest in particle physics, our different notions of God, and the collapse of the American empire.

Meditation Group

We are a small, informal group exploring peace and understanding together.  We always welcome newcomers.  Our group meets every Monday night at 7:00 pm in the Nichols Library at Church.  We share a brief reading, have a partly guided/partly silent meditation for 30-40 minutes and enjoy some quiet reflection and conversation afterward. We usually finish around 8:00 pm.  All are welcome to join in. All you need to do is show up.  

Not presently meeting due to Covid-19

Small Group Ministries
Small Group Ministries

Small Group Ministry (SGM) is designed to foster connection and caring, to provide an avenue for personal growth, and ultimately to strengthen the fabric of our community.  Each group has six to nine members and meets once or twice a month.  Meetings include personal sharing and discussion of a topic designed to nurture spiritual growth.  Facilitators are chosen and trained by the minister to lead the groups.  Each group chooses its meeting discussion topics.  Examples include gratitude, forgiveness, living with loss, music, service to others, our mothers, and living with uncertainty. 

 
UUCM Choir

UUCM's talented choir is lead by our Music Director Karen Gahagan. Through talent and dedication the UUCM choir adds a beautiful, complementary  dimension to our Sunday Services.

 

UUCM's choir welcomes new members. If interested please contact our Music Director.

Pastoral Care Associates

The Pastoral Care Associates (PCAs) are a group of 8-10 UUCM members appointed by the minister to be "listeners" to those who need to talk or be heard. 

 

The PCAs provide this emotional and spiritual support to ​people during or after a challenging phase of life including illness, caring for another in need, a separation, or difficulty coping with life's challenges.

 

We also organize help in the form of meals and transportation via the UUCM on-line Caring Connection when members are in need. ​

 

We are most viable assisting the Minister during Sunday services. You can contact us through the Minister or directly. Tricia Sullivan and Jack Weltner are co-chairs. 

Over 60s Gang

This group meets once a month on the church patio or at your home on zoom. Those with phones, laptops, tablets may bring them to the patio, we will hook into zoom, and those at home will also hook into zoom, and hopefully we will be able to see and hear each other.  There will be some 'instructions' given at 9.20 or so on the patio - so please show up a bit early.  We would like you also to bring a set of ear plugs for your device so that you might be able to hear better - BUT if you don't have them, don't worry - Paul has a speaker arrangement that should work for everyone.

Also if your battery won't last for the two plus hours of use of your device, please bring your plug in power cable - we will have power on the patio.

Masks will be 'mandatory' when you are walking around but when sitting, etc. - no mask required.  Also the kitchen will be closed and no food will be provided - so bring your own refreshments for yourself ONLY.  The unisex lavatories will be accessible.
Questions - email Bill.
