Drop-In Discussions

Drop-in discussions are held each Sunday morning in the Chalice Room on the second floor of our church, starting at 9:15 am. during the regular church year. Over the summer months, we begin at 11:30 am. Sometimes our discussions are based on certain books or articles, but you don’t have to read anything or do any advance preparation to participate. Just drop-in. People of all viewpoints are welcome to make presentations or join in the discussions.

Do you have a topic for us? Please contact DropInDiscussion@uuroc.org.
