Services

Worship is a vital part of our community. It is a time when the congregation comes together to be spiritually renewed and even challenged. Sunday Service is at 10:30am. The home page shows the time of the next two Sunday services and who the main preacher is for the day. Our minister usually preaches 3 times a month and our great worship team takes the fourth Sunday. Dress is casual neat. There is no dress code except to be dressed.

Choir

The UUCWNC Choir sings one Sunday a month, from September thru June.  All are welcome to join, you do not need to know how to read music.  Practice recordings are distributed each month for those who like the extra help of hearing their voice part highlighted.

Meeting Times: Weekly rehearsals are on Wednesdays 6:45-8:15 p.m. in the Sanctuary, from the first week in September through mid-June.

Time commitment:  Consistent attendance at rehearsals and performances throughout the church year is ideal.  If needed, it is possible to drop out for a month and jump back in when you are able to rehearse the music for the next Choir Sunday.

Serve on Sunday

The Worship Team provides weekly support to the Minister and Lay Service Leader(s), including setting up the Sanctuary and enlisting Offertory Ushers and Chalice Lighters.

On Sundays when the Minister is away, the Team provides quality Lay-led worship services which seek to affirm and promote our Unitarian Universalist values and offer inspiration, edification, and solace to all who attend. We welcome all who wish to join the Worship Team!

Meeting Times:  Second Wednesday of each month, at 6:00 p.m.

Time Commitment:  Meetings last approximately an hour. Worship Team members who lead services prepare homilies and/or sermons which may take a number of hours to research and write.
