Sunday Morning FAQ
COVID UPDATE: 8/7/2021 we have returned to in person services. Masks are required and social distancing is recommended in our sanctuary. See all REOPENING POLICIES HERE and check your ENEWS for the most up to date information.
What should I wear?
Wear whatever you want! UUCH is very casual.
What do I do when I get there?
If you are visiting for the first time, a greeter will help you fill out a visitor card and offer you a visitor packet. Be sure to get your order of service and plan to stay after the service for coffee and snacks spending some time to get to know a few people.
What happens at the service?
Sunday mornings at UUCH are a time for us to gather in our liberal faith, learn from one another and share together in acceptance. Some Sundays you can expect to hear moving sermons from our minister or enlightening services from our congregational leaders. Other Sundays you will see fun services from members, pagan celebrations, sermons from other religious leaders from our community or participatory singing and dancing! We encourage variety, thought-provoking conversations and open-mindedness. All are welcome in our sanctuary. Come join us!
What do I do with my children?
We love kids! All children are welcome to stay in the Sanctuary during worship on Sunday mornings. If you have a very young child (ages 0-4), you may want to get settled in the Early Room before the service begins at 10:30. Other young ones are invited to participate in Joys, Sorrows, and Milestones and the children’s story. Prior to the message, children are invited to go to the activity room or the early room.
What are Joys, Sorrows, and Milestones?
This is a unique part of our UU service and we think it’s pretty special! Everybody present is welcome to come up to the microphone and share their joys, sorrows, or milestones with the entire congregation. We do this as a way to offer our energy to celebrate with you or to help carry you through a tough time.
How do I just sneak in quietly to see if I like it?
Not possible. We love new people and we love to tell them about all the great things here at UUCH. Expect us to say hello! But, if you must be incognito, you can try coming in a little late, leaving a little early and filling out a guest card before you leave.
