Compassionate Communication, based on Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication method, is a tool for resolving differences.

Social Justice Committee 

Second Sunday of the Month at approximately 11:30 a.m.

Unitarian Universalists have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” Our work for a better world calls us to unexpected places as we harness love’s power to stop oppression.

Chalice Circle


Co-facilitated by Rochelle Turner, Jeanne Schmitzer, and Dylan Eralie, Chalice Circle is a small-group ministry. Meeting each second and fourth Sunday of each month at 5:00 p.m., this informal group will discuss topics of common spiritual interest.

This small group is the perfect place to meet new people and come to understand mutual life concerns. As we progress, our hope is to build deep connections with one another, with the congregation, and with the sacred.

Whether the topic is “religious timelines,” “living simply” or “the mystery of healing,” the conversation is respectful and caring and leads to greater understanding. Every participant has opportunities to share their perspectives, tell their stories, and listen mindfully. Our time together is structured with opening words, check-in, discussion of the evening's topic, likes and wishes, and closing words. Sessions will end at approximately 6:00 - 6:30. All are welcome.  


First and Third Tuesdays, 6:00 p.m. 

Second and Fourth Saturdays, 10:00 a.m.

Double-check the UUCC FB Page and/or Group for Verification

Tuesday sessions are traditional sitting meditations, part guided and part silent. Our focus will be on encouraging one another to develop a regular meditation practice, with some instruction on how to do that. You may sit on a chair, on the floor, or bring a cushion. Young adult and adult oriented.

Saturday sessions, titled "Mindfulness for Everyone," are family-focused, kid-friendly sessions that will be just as fun and use for adults. They will be a little more adventurous than our Tuesday sessions. We'll explore a variety of meditation traditions and techniques both ancient and modern, and talk about ways to bring mindfulness not only to a meditation practice but to everyday life. All are welcome.

All sessions are facilitated by Deanna Lack.
