All are welcome to the weekly Sunday worship service at 10:30 am!

UUCSS worship services are central to building community and inspiring us to fully live the principles that guide our lives. They help us support each other in times of joy and sorrow. They can transform us spiritually and intellectually, and deepen our commitment to enhance the lives of our families, our communities and our world.

In our non-credal religion, services reflect the diverse faith traditions from which we come. We celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Easter, Passover, Winter Solstice and other holidays meaningful to our members and friends. These and our unique UU religious festivals, such as the September Water Ceremony and the spring Flower Ceremony also reflect our UU values.

Our extensive and vibrant music program includes a choir, house band, acapella group, Celtic music ensemble, ukulele ensemble, and gifted solo musicians and vocalists. Local and national artists also join us during the year, and we host a popular jazz series.

Children join us in the sanctuary before their classes, and for special services. Nursery care is available for children up to age three. Services are interpreted in American Sign Language and assistive listening devices are available. The sanctuary is wheelchair accessible.

Services at UUCSS help foster our strong community spirit. We hope you will join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am.

What do Goblins have to do with Hanukkah?

            Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins is my favorite Hanukkah story. I have loved the story since it was first published when I was six years old. It tells the great story of folk hero Hershel of Ostropol, and how he is able to outwit evil goblins who are terrorizing a village of Jews. The Goblins won’t let the Jews celebrate Hanukkah,…

Prepare Room (Also known as Room at the Inn)

As Delivered December 15, 2019 Rev. Lyn Cox The nativity story in the book of Luke is famous, even for people who were not brought up Christian. We talked about it a little bit last week. Linus recites part of it in A Charlie Brown Christmas. Crèche scenes of all sizes depict the babe in the manger, attended by shepherds. Clearly, this…


We have reached the time of Advent, a period of reflection leading up to Christmas. In our community, we have varying experiences of and attitudes toward the holiday season. For many UU’s, the place of common ground is to acknowledge the hope that comes with each new life. Whether a baby is human or divine, they will turn someone’s world upside down. …

Never Stop Dancing: A Story of Grief, Friendship, and Community from UUCSS by John Robinette and Robert Jacoby

Robert Jacoby: It started with a connection, two men in conversation. I should say: for me and John, in deep and wide-ranging conversation. A verse from Proverbs speaks to our interactions: “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” And John and I really do sharpen each other in our conversations. This might be…

We Make it So

I have been spending the past few days with Unitarian Universalist religious educators. The annual conference of the Liberal Religious Educators Association (LREDA) is this weekend, and this year’s conference is in Baltimore. My first job after graduating from seminary was as a Minister for Religious Education, and I continue to feel that religious educators…

Be Prepared!

“Be prepared” is the motto of the Girls Scouts, as well as other scouting movements. When I was in Girl Scouts, we learned preparedness through first aid, camp cooking skills, campfire starting and fire safety, and other practical things. I’d like to think the entrepreneurship we learned also helped us to be ready for anything.…
