COVID UPDATE 06/09/22: We have returned to in-person services. If Orange County is in a code yellow or red, masks will be required indoors. If we are in the Green, masks are optional. There is a sign on the front door of the church to let you know, and check your ENEWS for the most up to date information.
Sunday mornings at UUCH are a time for us to gather in our liberal faith, learn from one another and renew ourselves to better serve the world. 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 and open mindedness. All are welcome in our sanctuary. Come join us.
UUCH uses the Soul Matters curricula, along with over 200 Unitarian Universalist congregations, to guide our words and music for Sunday services, small group Soulful Circle discussions, monthly Faith in Action topics, and personal reflection and practice. Soul Matters anchors our congregational life through monthly themes, September through June. Each theme plays a part in the development of a well-grounded religious and spiritual life. The church’s offerings each month are by no means limited to the themes, but the themes provide a focus around which we engage in community-wide conversations and practices. The themes for the 2021-22 church year include:
September: Embracing Possibility
October: Cultivating Relationships
November: Holding History
December: Opening to Joy
January: Living with Intention
February: Widening the Circle
March: Renewing Faith
May: Nurturing Beauty
June: Celebrating Blessings
We gather together in spiritual community because we need constant reminders of what matters most in life. In a world of heartbreak and dehumanization, our congregations and communities call us to our better selves. We learn to live with more wisdom, more connection, and more compassion.
Our Worship Services are weekly reflections that weave together our own thoughts and experiences with music, beauty, poetry, and words that both comfort and challenge. Our programs for all ages inspire us, and awaken us to our capacities to make a difference in our own lives and in the world.
We are inspired not just by religious sources but by the people with whom we journey: the diverse and spirited Unitarian Universalists.
