Happening This Sunday

Sunday Service: The Hunger for Touch

August 16, 2020

It's one of the biggest griefs of this time period. Unitarian Universalism's Our Whole Lives curriculum has a word for it- skin hunger. Do you miss hugging your friends? Reaching out to connect at the end of church? You are not alone. Let's explore this particular grief together.

Speaker: Rev. Lane Campbell

Due to COVID-19 we will be holding our worship services online for the foreseeable future . We will hold on-line services each Sunday at 10am (our regular summer worship time). 

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!

Other Events

Supply Table & Open Bathrooms for the Black Lives Matter protests!

August 15, 2020

Another Black Lives Matter protest is being organized for this Saturday downtown in MLK Park at 1pm. Our Board and Minister have decided to open up the church bathrooms again and provide a supply table. Donations will be collected between 11:30am and 12:30pm. We no longer need water bottles, but we do need:

  • 2-3 coolers

  • Bags of ice

  • Individually wrapped snacks

  • Masks

  • Hand sanitizer

  • Cleaning supplies (bleach wipes, sanitizing spray)

If you would like to volunteer, we will have volunteers at the church from 11:30am-1pm, 1-3pm, and 3-5pm. Volunteering includes bathroom care, distributing supplies, and collecting supplies. If you volunteered this past week, consider giving other folks a chance to volunteer as we had to turn some folks away to keep safe numbers and to ensure as much physical distancing as possible.
