Discovering the UUCC
Offered quarterly and facilitated by Minister Jay Leach, this informative session covers our philosophy, history, programs, and organization. Along with 10-20 other participants, you'll learn about our diverse religious heritage and what common beliefs UUs share. You'll meet several of our church leaders and you'll hear about our active Children & Youth Religious Education program. Breakfast and child care are provided. The next session date is publicized in our newsletter Voices, the Sunday Order of Service, and at the Visitor's Table in Freeman Hall.
Getting to Know Us
In an informal, drop-by setting, you can get to know a member and ask some specific questions about the UUCC. This opportunity is offered every 1st Sunday after each service for half an hour in the Bernstein Room downstairs.
Meet the Minister
If you are a visitor or a new member, you are invited to chat with our minister between services on the Third Sunday each month. Grab a cup of coffee or tea in Freeman Hall and proceed downstairs to the Bernstein Room for this brief and informal discussion.
For Visitors and Guests
Discover deeper spiritual meaning…
Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte!
Here people of diverse beliefs and backgrounds come together for mutual support and fellowship as we follow our own paths in search of truth and meaning. We celebrate the full participation of everyone without regard to age, gender, sexual orientation, race, or any other category of exclusion. You'll find our members 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. Check out About Unitarian Universalism to learn more about this liberal religion.
Our Sunday services are a great way to begin to get to know us better. Our services focus on a wide variety of religious, philosophical, personal, and social issues. They are led by our minister, our musicians, and a weekly Lay Worship Leader. 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. We invite you to come visit us and see if our open-minded, liberal religion feels right for you.
Our Children and Youth Religious Education program—known as Sunday School in other faith traditions—is designed to give our kids the tools they need to make up their own minds about life's big questions. Exposure to the stories, beliefs, theologies, and practices of the world's religions is an important aspect of this spiritual development program. The first time you bring your children, please come by the CYRE office 10–15 minutes early (the Welcoming Greeters can direct you) and someone will help you find your children's classrooms.
There are two tables for Visitors on Sunday mornings. The first is in the vestibule as you arrive, where greeters welcome visitors and members alike. Visitors are asked to sign in and make a red name tag so our members can recognize and welcome them.
After the service, visitors are invited to Freeman Fellowship Hall, across the vestibule from the sanctuary, for socializing over coffee or tea, browsing the book store, and learning more about our church activities. There you will find another Visitor's Table offering brochures and reading material about Unitarian Universalism, information about upcoming events, and greeters to answer your questions.
If you would like more information prior to being our guest here, please speak with our Coordinator of New Member Development, Kristie Lauderbaugh, at 704-366-8623, Ext. 231 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
