Split the Plate: Life Navigators

Split the Plate is one of UUCW’s programs of outreach and generosity. Each month we give 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. In February, UUCW supports Life Navigators.

Life Navigators is located in Wauwatosa and was founded in 1949 by parents committed to developing programs and educational opportunities for their children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Their mission is to "improve the quality of life for these individuals and their families through information, education, advocacy and life planning services." 


UUCW Votes to Stand with Black Lives Matter

By UUCW President, Betsy Gomoll

On Sunday, January 31, 2016, the congregation of Unitarian Universalist Church West voted yes on supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and affirmed that we begin to show our support publicly.

The Board of Trustees is grateful that more than 100 members and friends (and some youth) attended the meeting. There has been a great deal of learning and discussion in the past few weeks. That discussion continued before the vote on Sunday, and a number of questions and concerns were voiced and heard by all.


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.

My name is Eric Hoaglund and I have been a member here for almost five years. I firmly believe that you cannot develop your faith in isolation. We need community. We need to be able to discuss and challenge our beliefs. We need to tap into the wealth of knowledge and experience that is out there. UUCW offers all of this in a safe and caring environment.

  • Let’s Talk About Sex

    Sunday, February 14th, 2016—9:15 & 11:00 a.m.

    The Rev. Suzelle Lynch

    February‘s theme is "We are a People of Desire," and so it just seems natural to talk about sex! But can we really talk about SEX in church? Well, we offer Our Whole Lives, a wonderful values-based, human sexuality course to our young people, so why not? What‘s happening with sex these days in our broader culture? Do sexuality and desire have anything to do with spirituality? Come enjoy the conversation, along with music from our UUCW Adult Choir.

Family Movie Night and Sing-Along

Friday, February 19, 2016
6:00 – 8:30 pm

Join people of all ages in singing some of our favorite songs while we make our own lollipops and watch The Wizard of Oz together!

February’s Soul Matters theme is “We are a people of desire.” We are reminded of what Dorothy says in the Wizard of Oz: "If I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own backyard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with." As we watch the movie, we'll think about how happiness isn't something that's "over the rainbow,” but can be found right where we are.
