Calling all unicorns, knights, sports heroes, superheroes, wizards, flying monkeys, queens, elves and other amazing characters! LEGENDARY: the fabulous UUCW “goods and services” auction is coming up on Saturday, November 12th from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.!
At the Auction, church members and friends bid on items, events, and services donated by other church members and friends (as well as from local businesses). The funds we raise help fund the UUCW Operating Budget.
Our LEGENDARY auction theme this year is inspired by our November Soul Matters Theme, “We Are a Community of Story.” Legends, myths, tales and stories—imagine all the possibilities for auction fun. Costumes are encouraged (but not required!)
UUCW blessed and hung a Black Lives Matter banner on our building in April 2016 as a tangible symbol of our congregation’s support of the Black Lives Matter movement, which was voted upon at the January 2016 congregational meeting.
Our Black Lives Matter banner was hung in accordance with the “temporary banner permitting process” of the City of Brookfield, which states that any organization may post a temporary banner no more than four times a year, for 30 days at a time. After we reached the time limit for the banner, we posted new, smaller Black Lives Matter sign in keeping with City of Brookfield rules for temporary political signs.
Imagine the Unitarian Universalist Church West of the future: a congregation with a building as open and flexible as our theology, as welcome and warm as our spirit, a building with mechanical systems that are healthy and efficient, office and meeting spaces that help our ministries hum along, and a floor plan accessible to everyone! We're describing UUCW’s Build 2020.
For the past two years, UUCW has engaged in a Holistic Study process to discern what needs to happen to transform our building into one that more fully supports our ministry and mission. We worked with Workshop Architects on that process, which resulted in a preliminary architectural plan. Click here to view the Holistic Study presentation.Read more...
Each month, UUCW gives half of all undesignated offering monies to non-profit organizations as a way to help us live our Unitarian Universalist values and serve our community.
YWCA Southeast Wisconsin is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, support families, and strengthen communities.Read more...

A Community of Healing is one in which we care for one another in times of joy and times of pain. We listen to each other’s struggles, we stand by one another, we step in to mend what is broken as best we can. But to heal, we have to acknowledge our wounds. With readings, silence, rituals, and music we weave a web of healing today to help and hold us all.
Special music today is by the UUCW Adult Choir, joined by special guest, Cynthia Cobb, of Skylight Musical Theater. The “Get Involved Fair” is also happening today after both services—learn more about the many groups, teams, and activities at UUCW.
