What to Expect
Visitors are always welcome at UUG! Sunday morning worship begins at 10:30 AM both in person and online. They last approximately one hour. Attending is a good way to begin to get to know our congregation, our minister and other leadership, and to learn something about Unitarian Universalism. If you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the beginning of the service there will be time to meet a Membership Committee representative who can show you the ropes. We hope that you also will stay after the service for coffee or our monthly potluck (held the second Sunday of each month).
At UUG, we are interested in YOU, not your clothes. Some of us choose to dress up for Sunday mornings. Others come in jeans or shorts (depending upon the weather). Just be yourself!
During the service, a Worship Assistant will lighting a chalice to symbolize entering into worship as a beloved community. A flaming chalice is the primary symbol of the Unitarian Universalist faith tradition. Learn more about it HERE
A Note About Parking
The parking lot surrounding the church is owned by another group. UUG has two designated “church parking” spots at the rear of the building that anyone is welcome to use. Handicapped parking spaces are available for use at the top of the parking lot nearest the front door of the church. Because the other spots are rented by the owner, please park in a spot that does not have a 24/7 marker on it. Any other spots are available on Sundays for worship. On street parking in front of the church is free until 1:00 PM, when meters are to be fed.
A Note About Accessibility
The main door located at the front of the church is handicapped accessible. The sanctuary, kitchen, church office, and a restroom are all on one level for accessibility as well. While there are rooms on the lower level of the church for small groups, there is no elevator at this time. The sanctuary is air-conditioned and heated when needed and is a smoke-free environment. If you need help with audio during the service, we recommend bringing a cell phone and headphones or earbuds along. Our technology team can link you into the Zoom service and the sound will be amplified. Our online Zoom services are set to provide closed captioning.
