The Church Has Left The Building!
We have moved our worship services (mostly) online!
We will be holding several in-person outdoor worship services over the
summer (June 20, July 18, and August 8), and hope to be back in the building this fall.
Please check below for links and more info on this switch of our services!
Sunday Service: Where Has All the Nuance Gone?
8/8/21 at 10am
We are bombarded with messages about how divided our nation is. Indeed, we all know people with whom it seems we can barely speak without arguing. Why is this? Have we all lost our ability to see nuance?
This will be a hybrid outdoor and online worship service, with the in-person component at the Riverbend Shelter in Genesee Valley Park and the online component over Zoom.
Speaker: Peter House
We no longer are requiring masks, registration, not health screenings for folks who are vaccinated. We do ask that those who are unvaccinated please come wearing a mask and observe social distancing requirements.

Please send your Joys and Sorrows to be read at our Sunday Worship service to JoysandSorrows@uuroc.org.
Note: When you email a joy or sorrow to us, you are giving us permission to read it aloud at our Sunday service and possibly publish it in this weekly email. Thank you!

Free Will and Predestination
How much are our life choices shaped by circumstances? How much by our will and how much by our environment? How much by conscious choice and how much by unconscious motive? Does it matter what we think about these matters? Phil Ebersole will facilitate a discussion of these questions.
Please join us for our summer Midweek Meditation sessions at 11:30am on the dates listed below!
