Compassionate Communication

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

CC meets on the first and third Wednesdays of each month.


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

Sundays at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Facilitated by Dylan Eralie, UUCC is beginning a new series of Chalice Circles. The focus is on the UU faith. Everyone is invited, but the target participants are those who have are either new members of friends of the congregation. The Circles will focus on what it means to be UU. Long-time members or UUers may attend to strengthen their own faith. All are welcome.  


Meditation

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.
