Our Sunday Services
9:15 am | 11:15 am
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte offers two Sunday Services—at 9:15 and 11:15—each Sunday morning. Each is approximately one hour in length. These services typically include readings, hymns, instrumental and vocal music, meditations, an offering, and a sermon by our minister or by a guest speaker. A printed Order of Service assists you in feeling comfortable as you participate with us.
Our services focus on a wide variety of religious, philosophical, personal, and social issues. They are led by our minister, our musicians, and by a weekly Lay Worship Leader who also assists in planning the week's service. We honor the wisdom of the world's religious traditions and often include readings from the sacred texts of one or more of these traditions in a service.
Our members come from throughout the Charlotte area and beyond and are diverse in their personal religious perspectives. You'll find them attired in everything from business wear to more casual clothing. Some have been life-long Unitarian Universalists; most have come into this faith from other religious traditions.
During our 9:15 a.m. service there are Religious Education classes for children, preschool through fifth grade. (Note: a Middle School class will be added at this time in September 2014.) During our 11:15 a.m. service there are Religious Education classes for all children and youth through 12th grade. Both services offer a well-staffed nursery for children up to 36 months. Because our services are designed for adult comprehension and adult attention spans, we encourage you to allow your children to enjoy the activities we offer for them.
