2023-24 Faith-to-Action Nomination

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.

On May 28, 2023, the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, “The True Meaning of Honor” was the sermon title of the Rev. Dr. C.W. Dawson, Jr., our guest preacher. He said that as members of this society, we are encouraged to honor those who have died before us. And then he explored whether our honoring should stop there.

Sunday at UUCC – June 4, 2023

Mindfulness Meditation takes place at 9 a.m. every Sunday. Beginners and experienced meditators welcome. If the outside temperature is 55 degrees or higher and weather permits, meditation will take place at the fire circle behind the church. Otherwise, meditation will be in the Centering Room.

Flower Ceremony Centennial – Rev. Molly Housh Gordon and DRE Jamila Batchelder

Join us in this beloved all-ages celebration of the beauty of our many-flowering community. This year’s celebration is the 100th Anniversary of the very first Flower Ceremony celebrated by Norbert Capek in Prague in 1923. Join us alongside Unitarian Universalists across the world for a historic and beautiful centennial celebration. Please bring a flower to share! Stay after the service for our first Sunday potluck to continue the celebrations!

Masks are optional but welcome and celebrated at our worship services. We will continue to provide KN-95 masks of all sizes for those who need or prefer them and to maintain a culture that welcomes masking. In order to continue to protect our community, we ask you to ensure that you are up to date on Covid vaccination and boosters and to stay home with our online worship offering if you feel sick at all.
