We are a faith community that values caring, learning, and acting on our Unitarian Universalist principles.

Large-and-small-domes-main-entrance-from-road-12-10-2013-1024x575OUR VISION: We will become:

  • A generous community where all members contribute time, talent, and treasure to our shared goals;     
  • A responsive community dedicated to religious exploration for all ages, caring for one another and welcoming all people of good will;
  • A visible community with a heart for justice, actively seeking ways to be involved with our larger community;
  • A growing community that stewards an expanded and updated campus with accessible facilities that will support our mission.

We have two Sunday Services, the 1st begins at 9:30am-10:15am. The 2nd service starts at 11:15am-12:15pm. They take place in “The Dome,” our signature sanctuary (above, flanked by our “Small Dome” on the right, UUCT’s original meeting place), and is followed by coffee and fellowship, along with a host of activities – some planned, others spontaneous. You never can tell what might be happening on any given Sunday (unless you check here on our website, or come and find out for yourself). See you in church!

‘Meaning Without Memory’
Guest Speaker Christine Dance
In our month of discussing memory, our guest minister Christine Dance will discuss where we find meaning when we are a person with—or caring for someone with—dementia or Alzheimer. Without memory, where do we find connection, purpose and peace?

Times: 9:30am or 11:15am
