UUCA CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) NOTICE.
At the strong recommendation of our national UUA leadership, we are switching our worship services to livestream, and will suspend in-person worship services in the sanctuary at UUCA until further notice. At this point in the COVID-19 pandemic, we seek to be a part of the solution of social distancing that is our best defense against the spread of the virus. We believe in public health. 

We will continue to livestream our worship each Sunday. This upcoming Sunday March 15, Rev. Taryn will lead worship, Don Milton III will provide music, and we will see a guest sermon from the excellent preacher Rev. Meg Barnhouse called "Finding Gold in the Shadows".  We will have multiple A/V technicians at UUCA to ensure an excellent livestream experience and moderate comments.

Our service will begin at 11:00am. Please tune in here.


UUCA is closed to the public until further notice.

Please email communications@uuca.org with questions and concerns. 
Sign up to get a livestream link via text!
