UUCC Offices will be closed on Thursday, November 27 and Friday, November 28 in observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday.
"Getting to Know Us"
Every 1st Sunday after each service, visitors are invited to an informal Q&A with a long-standing UU Church of Charlotte member. Grab a cup of coffee from Freeman Hall and meet downstairs in the Conference Room immediately following either service.
Credo: A Spiritual Journey
Born in a small town in rural Pennsylvania, Jen attended a fairly liberal United Church of Christ with her family. She spent most Sundays at church, sang in the children’s choir, and spent summers at church camp. For her, church was more of a community rather than a spiritual place. Jen Neitzel was always a questioner and stopped going to church in her early adolescence. After many years of trying to figure things out, Jen found her way to the Unitarian church. Here, she has explored her spirituality and draws from many different religious traditions and practices to provide clarity and guidance in her daily life. Join Jen at 10:30 a.m. in the Bernstein Room to hear more of her story. Childcare provided.
Room In The Inn
We provide shelter for nine adults each Sunday night, and our first date this season will be December 7. If you are not already on the list and would like to consider being one of the approximately 20 volunteers who make this shelter happen each week by setting up, driving, cooking, hosting, and/or cleaning, please email Rocky Hendrick at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.signupgenius.com and pick a date.
Forum on Child Refugees from Central America
The UUCC Social Justice Team is sponsoring a forum on Tuesday, December 9, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary on the current situation involving thousands of unaccompanied child refugees fleeing horrendous gang violence and poverty in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. This event is being cosponsored by the Immigration Solidarity Committee of Charlotte, and representatives of the Charlotte Compassion Action Network for Children, representing faith communities, businesses, legal and humanitarian service organizations in support of unaccompanied child refugees, will also be present.
Holiday Treats Abound for Everyone
Join us for a day filled with holiday cheer, from “Snacks with Santa” to a community potluck and holiday carol concert. The festivities begin at 4:30 p.m. with the CYRE-sponsored “Snacks with Santa” in Freeman Hall. At 6:00 p.m., the Community Building Team-sponsored community potluck will take place in Freeman Hall. Please bring a labeled dish to share and a healthy appetite! Libations will be provided. The evening concludes with the Music Program-sponsored Holiday Concert at 7:00 p.m.
