The following are some of the regularly scheduled events and activities that take place at UUCT. There are many more exciting opportunities within our community that can be found by looking thru our website. UU Christian Spirituality, Meditation Practices and helping with meals at the Kearney Center are just a few examples of what the UUCT community has to offer in addition to what is listed below.
Getting to Know UUCT
Every 3rd Sunday!
What is UUCT all about? In less than an hour the Membership Team will introduce newcomers to UUCT, answer questions, and invite you to share what brings you here. To learn more about this session, contact Trudy Deyle, Sally Andersen, or Terri Martin.
(BIPOC) People of Color Meet Up
Every 4th Sunday!
9:30 am, Room C
Members, friends, and visitors of color at UUCT are welcome to our monthly meetup! We will be deepening our relationships with each other, Unitarian Universalism, and our congregation through sharing spiritual practices and stories of showing up with our whole selves.
Due to the wide spread of the COVID-19 virus and associated dangers, the co-directors are suspending Freethinkers’ Forum meetings until further notice.
The Freethinkers’ Forum offers a discussion venue for those who think that opinions, religious and otherwise, should be formed on the basis of logic and reason.
Presentations include topics in science, social science, philosophy, and literature. Directors of the Freethinkers’ Forum are Warren Brackmann and Antonio Garcia. To be added to the email notification list, email Warren Brackmann at email@example.com. Emails should have “Freethinkers’ Forum” in the subject line.
All are welcome to attend.
Every 3rd Tuesday!
Facilitated by: Trudy Deyle and Sally Andersen
You are invited to join a special Small Group Ministry, UU Explorations, for those interested in gaining a deeper understanding of what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist. This is a sharing and listening circle about topics that relate to the theme: What does it mean to be a Unitarian Universalist? It is an opportunity to get to know others on a deeper level and reflect together on important topics and concepts in Unitarian Universalism. The circle is specifically not a class or discussion group.
All are welcome to attend!

Emergent Strategy Group
Every 1st Thursday!
As our congregation moves through transitions, builds relationships for the work of social justice in the community, and commits to an intentionally anti-racist, anti-oppressive, multicultural beloved community, we face many challenges for “how to do the work” and stay in right relation with each other.
We invite you to read the book Emergent Strategy by writer and pleasure activist Adrienne Maree Brown (or review online summaries) as time permits, but definitely don’t let that hold you back from joining the discussion.
We’ll unpack the rich wisdom of incorporating an emergent, adaptive, and growth mindset into our personal lives, how we relate to each other as a congregation, and how we can leverage these values in our work for justice in the wider world. You can purchase the book through the inSpirit UUA Books & Gift store. Contact Anna Bethea for more information.

Meet on the Veranda, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
Coordinator: Bonnie Abellera, Community Connections Chair

Come for an hour or join us all day. There are no rules for how long you should stay! No time is too short, and no job is too small! We welcome your help! We appreciate it all!
