Welcome‎ > ‎

What to Expect

Our services begin at 10:00 a.m. from September through June, 
and move to 9:00 a.m. during July and August.

Arriving 

Parking is often tight downtown, so we suggest coming 5 minutes earlier than you might normally consider doing, so you are not rushed. There is free parking available on the streets and in several nearby parking structures on Sundays. For more information click HERE

You can enter the Church from either the Mission Inn Avenue or the Lemon Street entrance. 

We generally dress in our better casual clothes. Our kids dress in clothing appropriate for arts and crafts or fun outside activities in our religious education classes.

Children

Children are always welcome to stay with their parent(s) during the service. In our Lifespan Learning programs, children and teens learn the meaning of the UU Seven Principles, and explore interfaith traditions and life skills through creative and interactive activities.   

Children under age four have optional childcare in the Wiggle Room, upstairs in the parish hall adjacent to the sanctuary. All other classes meet in the Learning Annex next door to the church. Ask the Greeters for further information.

Worship

Services are usually an hour long and generally consist of a welcome, lighting of the chalice, hymns, sharing in stewardship (passing the offering basket, and collections of food and new socks and hygiene items), sermon, and benediction.

Following Worship

Fellowship

Following every service we gather in the parish hall for refreshments and good conversation. Parents generally walk over to the Learning Annex to see what their children have been doing, then return for fellowship.

On the first Sunday of the month, following Service, we have a First Sunday Lunch prepared by one of our church committees or other groups allied with UUCR. 

"Chat Time." This is an informal group open to all that starts at 11:15 a.m. in the Annex (building on Lemon next to the church) where we share our thoughts from the service or whatever else is on our minds.

For More Information: There is an information rack in the parish hall with brochures on various aspects of Unitarian Universalist faith and history.
