Coronavirus Alternative Church Plans

In response to the continued spread of COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, the Executive Board of UUCT has made the decision to cancel all in-person Sunday programs, including worship and RE, until further notice. Most other in-person programs are also cancelled until further notice, including Christian Spirituality, Mindfulness Meditation, and the Freethinker’s Forum. See the “More Information” section below for how to connect.

Scheduled Zoom Meet-Ups

Join us this Sunday via Zoom for connection and spiritual centering.

Learning from Wild Geese

Join us this Sunday as we explore together what this time has to teach us.  We will look to the natural world, to the poets, and to each other to learn “our place in the world of things.”  This will be a rich time of sharing, meditation, and reflection.

Our Zoom service starts at 11:00am.

Feel free to show up early, sign on, and socialize at our Virtual Coffee (Half) Hour starting at 10:30am.

If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, it’s simple and easy to use. 

You may join online using a computer or smart phone. 

You may also call in.

We recommend having a lamp in front of you and that you wear solid colors for best visibility. Use of a headset is also recommended.

More Information

We at UUCT are committed to supporting each other during this challenging time. We know that social isolation is also difficult, and even a health risk of its own. With this in mind we plan to make extra efforts to stay connected during this time when we are encouraging a reduction in in-person interactions.  The UUA’s Carey McDonald has suggested we use this time of “social distancing” as an opportunity to focus on community care, on how we can keep connected with each other even when we can’t be in the same room together.

Many of our opportunities to connect will be via video conferencing software Zoom and on the church’s existing Facebook UUCT Sharing group. Please join us and reach out if you’re having any difficulties.
