Come as You Are to Worship
10:30 am Sunday Services, in-person and online
First-time visitors and frequent guests gather for the Visitor Meetup after Sunday services on the first Sunday of the month. This brief, get-to-know-us session will answer your questions about Unitarian Universalism, our church community, and the many opportunities for growth, connection, and service. All are welcome. Stop by or contact us for more info.
For members and friends, old and new, we present Faith Forward. This series deep-dives into all things UU Santa Moncia: from membership and faith development for children and youth to UU principles and our social justice and environmental work. The campus tour and Q&A with the minister are always well attended. Check out the Events page for upcoming sessions.
Drop in for one session or attend many, as the nine-week course repeats in spring and fall.
Lifelong questioning and learning are fundamental to our faith, and UUSM offers many programs to educate, enrich, support, and build community. Adults of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to the recurring programs listed here, and special programs found on our Events page.
Opportunities to Serve with UUSM
We come together for more than ourselves. We work for peace, justice, human rights, and sustainability in our local community and wider world. Our Faith in Action Commission (FIA) enables awareness, volunteerism, and direct action in several ways. We advocate with local and national movements and support individual passion projects. UUs traditionally say that social action is “praying with your feet,” and we are on the march.
Intergenerational: Many families put their UU values into practice through wholehearted living, service, and activism.
Families, Children, and Youth
We invite families and youth to join an exciting journey of questioning, searching, challenging, and wondering about the meaning of life with all its mysteries, great and small. UUSM hosts in-person programs that foster the personal and spiritual development of children and youth, within the context of Unitarian Universalism.
First Friday Fun and Games is our newest come-as-you-are addition to our lineup of programming. We bring the dinner and games, you bring the family. It's a great opportunity to get to know other families in the congregation. Our Whole Lives sexuality education programs (Grades K-1, 5-6, 7-9 and 10-12), along with Coming of Age (for 7th-9th graders) and YRUU (Young Religious UUs, 9-12 grades) happen at different times throughout the yeaar. In Spring 2023 we are running OWL for 7th-9th graders. In Fall 2023, we plan to run OWL for 5th-6th graders and Coming of Age for our youth 7-10th grades. YRUU social activities will also reboot in Fall 2023.
