UUCW Stories

Split the Plate: The Milwaukee Center for Children and Youth

Each month, UUCW gives half of all undesignated offering monies to a non-profit organization as a way to help us live our Unitarian Universalist values and serve our community.

The Milwaukee Center for Children and Youth (MCCY) was founded in 2011 to respond to specific gaps in services for abused and neglected children in Milwaukee. Their mission is to keep children safe, to create nurturing communities, and to advance best practices and improved outcomes for children and families. All services are free, and include a healthy meal and transportation assistance.


2016 Pledge Drive Continues

"Wake Up Your Generous Spirit," UUCW's annual pledge drive, continues. The Stewardship Committee says thank you to everyone who has made a pledge of financial support to UUCW for the upcoming Fiscal Year. Members’ financial giving funds 82% of the annual Operating Budget—what wonderful supporters our members and friends are! As of March 22nd, we’ve 

received pledge commitments of $427,803. We’re not quite finished: we still have more than $70,000 to raise.

Want to learn more? Still need to pledge?


Why We Give

Members of UUCW share stories of "why we give" during Sunday services as part of our Annual Pledge Drive. We invite you to read their inspiring thoughts about UUCW, generosity and gratitude.

Here's why members Eric and Jody Jessup-Anger give to UUCW:

Jody: For me, UUCW offers community, opportunities for involvement in important community issues, and food for thought. And for Eric the services are a place of reflection and rejuvenation. It may be through the music of Dan Dance or the Worship Band or while listening to sermons by our ministers or a recent one on by Philip Chard on the mysteries of the subconscious mind.

Eric: We have been impressed by the myriad ways that UUCW promotes involvement within the community and also with the greater Milwaukee community. We know that the money we give to UUCW goes to causes we support unequivocally. And, we know that the programs and services offered by UUCW would not be possible without our support.

This Sunday's Sermon:
  • Bright Blessings of Beltane

    Sunday, May 1st, 2016—9:15 & 11:00 a.m.

    The Rev. Suzelle Lynch, EarthSpirit Team, and UUCW Adult Choir

    Today we tune into the cycle of the seasons and connect with the sacred ground we inhabit with the earth-centered holiday of Beltane! Sometimes also known as “May Day,” Beltane ushers in the light half of the “Wheel of the Year.” It’s a time of new beginnings, celebrating new ventures, and rejoicing in the new life all around us. EarthSpirit worship services promote respect for the interdependent web of all existence via ritual, storytelling, singing, silence, and reflection. We also begin UU Wellspring Month today.
