Split the Plate Supports Neighborhood House of Milwaukee

Image result for neighborhood house milwaukeeEach 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.

Neighborhood House is located on Milwaukee's near west side, and has been in operation for 70 years, serving low income, largely non-white children and their families. It's a community center in the settlement house tradition, founded to help strengthen children and families in some of the city’s most challenging neighborhoods.

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.

  • How Do We Need to Live?

    Sunday, October 23rd—9:15 and 11:00 a.m.

    Pulpit Guest: The Rev. Dr. Andrew C. Kennedy, Worship Coordinators: Almuth Soffee and Deb Ruesch 

    Rev. Dr. Drew Kennedy, will invite us to think about how we ought to live our lives in light of the fact that life is precious and that all of us, one day, must die. Centering on an amazing and poignant story of a woman at a crossroads in her life, we’ll explore one of life’s basic existential questions: How do we need to live? About our guest: Rev. Dr. Drew Kennedy earned a B.A. in philosophy from the University of Michigan, and his Master’s and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Meadville Lombard Theological School, a Unitarian Universalist seminary in Chicago. Rev. Kennedy served 28 years as Senior Minister of the First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee before retiring in 2014.

    Special Music: Craig Siemsen and Patty Stevenson.
