Worship is the primary spiritual practice for many Unitarian Universalists, renewing our spirits, inviting us into deeper connection with ourselves and the sources that nurture, sustain, and challenge us, and encouraging us to live into our unique calling in the world.
Our weekly Sunday worship services aim to inspire our hearts and minds and help us to fully live our Unitarian Universalist values of love and service. Through a diversity of topics, each service seeks to strengthen our commitment to help one another on our individual spiritual paths. On any given Sunday, our pulpit speaker may be a guest UU minister, a religious leader from one of a wide array of world religions, a lay speaker from the greater community or a member of our own congregation. Service topics include explorations of religious and philosophical issues, social, racial and climate justice, individual freedoms, and spiritual seeking.
UUCWI is served by an Interim Minister for Pastoral Care, the Reverend Kate Lore. Reverend Kate provides care for members of our community experiencing trauma, bereavement, or challenging life passages. She provides a loving, accepting, hopeful presence that makes it easier for people to get in touch with their own inner resources. In addition, she coordinates and consults with the UUCWI Pastoral Care Team and is available to officiate at memorial services, celebrations of life, and other rites of passage.
Lay volunteers provide logistical support to members of our community in need, through UUCWI’s Caring Circle.
