For most of our worship services beginning in the spring of 2020, we have video recordings of the full worship service and of just the sermon available for you to watch.

Characters on the Couch

Led by: Katie Resendiz
Worship Associate: Owen Lifshitz & Gio Palumbo
Music: Benjie Messer

There is nothing to be learned from children's television. Cookie monster, Elmo and their friends have no spiritual message for you, and going to counseling isn't useful at all for our younger generation. Join us as we share how the youth of UUCP can prove us wrong.

Major Margaret Witt was responsible for bringing down the U.S. military's anti-gay "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy, and also happens to be a close friend of Rev. Christine's. Join us to hear how she found a new purpose in fighting against discrimination, and to think about the work we have left to do. Immediately following the service, we will have our Mid-Year Congregational Update.

My Body Isn’t Broken, Your Faith Is

Led by: Rev. Christine Dance
Worship Associate: Gary Ezzell
Music: UUCP Choir

Ancient religions have taught us so many harmful things about disabled bodies being "broken" and needing to be healed. Like many things from our old beliefs, this is one that needs to be actively explored and challenged. We will explore what religions have taught about disabilities and how we can reform them to recognize the wholeness and worth of every single person, as our faith calls us to do.

MLK Day: Prophetic Ministry Is Always Pastoral

Led by: Rev. Christine Dance
Worship Associate: Sam Kirkland
Music: Drummunity and Friends

On this Martin Luther King weekend, we will explore how being a prophetic and deed-oriented people is always rooted in pastoral actions. From creating relationships to finding opportunities to serve to random acts of kindness, learning how to be pastoral can be radical acts of our progressive faith.

Led by: Rev. Christine Dance
Worship Associate: Jon Palumbo
