Split the Plate: Life Navigators

Split the Plate is one of UUCW’s programs of outreach and generosity. Each month we give half of all undesignated offering monies to a non-profit organization as a way to help us live our Unitarian Universalist values and serve our community. In February, UUCW supports Life Navigators.
Life Navigators is located in Wauwatosa and was founded in 1949 by parents committed to developing programs and educational opportunities for their children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Their mission is to improve the quality of life for these individuals and their families through information, education, advocacy and life planning services. Life Navigators supports children and adults throughout their lifespan to ensure that their individual with a disability is active and connected to our community.

Peter Mayer Concert in Photos

Minnesota-based singer-songwriter Peter Mayer gave a heartwarming and entertaining concert for a crowd of 200 at UU Church West in November 2015. His breathtaking talent on the guitar, charming wit and brilliant lyricism combined for an enchanting evening. Pete’s work as a musician informed by our Unitarian Universalist faith is inspiring to so many people; fans travel great distances to see him perform. Pete’s musical ministry has reached people across the nation! He truly is a delightful and down-to-earth person who connects with audiences in a powerful and personal way. During intermission and after the show, folks were able to purchase his CDs, get his autograph and chat with him too.

This Sunday's Sermon:
  • Thomas Merton’s Reflections on Unity

    Sunday, February 7th, 2016—9:15 & 11:00 a.m.

    Pulpit Guest: Virginia Kaib Ratigan, Worship Coordinator: Almuth Soffee

    Throughout his monastic life, in essays, letters and poetry, Merton often reminds us of our "original unity" by looking through the lens of childhood. Whatever our age, this simple and deep reflection on the child may cast light on our own lives, our lives in the local and world community and the principles which guide us.

Family Movie Night and Sing-Along

Friday, February 19, 2016
6:00 – 8:30 pm

Join people of all ages in singing some of our favorite songs while we make our own lollipops and watch The Wizard of Oz together!

February’s Soul Matters theme is “We are a people of desire.” We are reminded of what Dorothy says in the Wizard of Oz: "If I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own backyard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with." As we watch the movie, we'll think about how happiness isn't something that's "over the rainbow,” but can be found right where we are.
