January Split the Plate Supports Common Ground

Each month, UUCW gives half of all undesignated offering monies to non-profit organizations as a way to help us live our Unitarian Universalist values and serve our community.

Pursuing justice and working together to create a better world is central to Unitarian Universalism. We see brokenness around us: community members struggling to be recognized as citizens and feeling powerless, intimidating threats against minorities, continued violence, and a disregard for our environment. As individuals and community partners, we seek to be repairers of the breach.

Build 2020 Update

Imagine the Unitarian Universalist Church West of the future: a congregation with a building as open and flexible as our theology, as welcome and warm as our spirit, a building with mechanical systems that are healthy and efficient, office and meeting spaces that help our ministries hum along, and a floor plan accessible to everyone! We're describing UUCW’s Build 2020.

For the past two years, UUCW has engaged in a Holistic Study process to discern what needs to happen to transform our building into one that more fully supports our ministry and mission. We worked with Workshop Architects on that process, which resulted in a preliminary architectural plan. Click here to view the Holistic Study presentation.

Join Us Sunday Morning

Worship Services
9:15 AM and 11:00 AM
This Sunday's Sermon:
  • Prophetic Places, Powerful Spaces

    Sunday, January 29th - 9:15 and 11:00 a.m.

    Pulpit Guest:  Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher          Worship Coordinator:  Almuth Soffee

    The spaces we live in, learn in, work in, worship in and play in shape us.  They contribute to the ways we think, they encourage or discourage our dreams, they help us think out of the box or keep us locked in it...and thus they have a share in determining what we are becoming.  But what if we could shape the spaces we inhabit in a way that could help us live our values more fully? What if we could shape spaces to help our dreams come alive?

    About our guest:  Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher, an artist and teacher, was the Religious Education Director at Detroit UU church.  She became Minister in 1989 and served churches in Traverse City, Michigan; Morristown, New Jersey; and Naperville, Illinios, which granted her the status of Minister Emerita.  Kaleidoscope, the UUCW Worship Band, provides music today!
