Come Worship With Us

WORSHIP CALENDAR: October 2022

November 6: “Happy Resilience”

(Rev. Michael) These are fearful times marked by division, political violence and the looming threat that our democracy institutions may not be able to withstand the pressure they are under. In order to right the ship we will need resilience, courage, real change and good humor. Say what? Join us and see. Today we will share Joys & Concerns with each other.

November 13: “You Want to Know About Resilience?
Just Ask Me.”

(Rev. Michael) Each generation of children and teenagers faces challenges due to shifting ideas about parenting, general societal changes, sexuality— even musical choices and fashion fads. Today, our minister makes the case for his generation’s capacity for resilience. Today the KUUC Choir joins us.

November 20: “Lost & Found”

(Rev. Michael) We have been through an awful lot in the past 4-5 years—and plenty of it has been just awful. What do we do with it? How do we process it? Perhaps throw it in the attic? We’ll just have to figure it out together. The KUUC joins us once again

November 27: “TBA”

(MOOP) More details to come…

Our Principles as we Reopen:

Safety ~ Choice ~ Inclusivity ~ Flexibility

Watch Virtual ServiceSafety is our overriding concern. Our newly purchased audiovisual equipment makes it possible to have multiplatform/hybrid worship services that can be watched at home. Thus, those of us who are at higher risk of getting COVID-19, whether due to not being vaccinated or because of having a health condition that makes vaccination less effective, can still attend services, virtually. Our concurrent streaming to YouTube makes it possible for those of us who have other reasons to not attend services in person to attend online.

Although the CDC has basically stated that all activities are safe for those who have been fully vaccinated (provided that they do not have compromised immune systems), the UUA, in its emphasis on inclusivity, has set forth guidelines with the assumptions that not everyone has a healthy immune system and that not everyone is vaccinated (especially given that children under age 12 are not yet approved for vaccination). Thus, the UUA recommends use of masks at worship services, also spacing. Smaller groups (ideally fully vaccinated) may meet without masks, but all group members should be willing and ready to wear a mask at the request of any member of the group. As eating and drinking together inside in large groups is not possible to do while masked, and is a relatively high-risk activity, there will be no coffee hour for the time being—at least not indoors.

With the following rules, attending activities at KUUC will be at least as safe as entering other indoor spaces that are used by the general public.

Our Rules:

  1. All in-person worship attendees must be able to show proof of vaccination. You can do this by sending a copy of your vaccination card to Rev. Michael to be put on the list of live service attendees or show it to the ushers on Sunday morning. Because the vaccination list is updated weekly, once you have sent/shown it, you won’t be required to do so again.
  2. People should not enter the church building if they are ill, especially with new onset (less than 2 weeks) of cough or cold symptoms. This does not exclude people with a mild chronic cough or known allergy symptoms.
  3. People (other than for the minister and others speaking from the altar area) will be masked and spaced in alternating pews for worship services – people in the same household and friends who frequently see each other may sit together.
  4. Singing will be permitted, but with masks on.
  5. At this time there will be no indoor coffee hour or other indoor congregation-wide eating or drinking.
  6. Groups of up to 20 fully vaccinated people may meet without having masks on and may share food and drink, but if any one member of the group requests that the group wear masks, all should readily agree to do so, no questions asked.
  7. As taking the temperature of people entering the church and as wiping down surfaces is time-consuming, resource-consuming and of questionable benefit, these practices are not being implemented.
  8. Should the COVID-19 epidemic take a significant turn for the worse, especially if a new vaccine-resistant strain emerges, the board of trustees reserves the right to limit access to our building
