Building a Better World

We work actively to eliminate oppression and create a sustainable, just, peaceful and compassionate world in partnership with other organizations and congregations, as well as among ourselves. Our worship, spiritual life and caring community encourage and equip us to do this work. We share the good news of our faith and promote Unitarian Universalism in our wider community.

Split the Plate Supports the National Alliance on Mental Illness

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. Our Split the Plate recipient for February is the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).


Build 2020 Update

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.

This Sunday's Sermon:
  • "What Love, Understanding, and Commitment Can Do"

    Sunday, February 26, 2017 —9 :15 and 11:00 a.m.
    The Rev. Suzelle Lynch & Joyce Palmer
    Our UU Association President, the Rev. Peter Morales, said “I am a UU because I need other people who love what I love. I am a UU because I want to join hands with others to create a community where we grow spiritually, where we support one another, and where we work together to create a world in which everyone matters, everyone is free, everyone is respected.... I am a UU because I have seen what love, understanding, and commitment can do.  And I am a UU because I am convinced that if we let the love in our hearts guide our ways, the possibilities before us are breathtaking.” YES!  This is what UUCW is all about.  Today is “Invitation-to-Share Sunday” —we’ll reflect on the love, understanding and commitment we embody, and will provide everyone with the  means to be part of the Build the Vision Campaign!   
    Music from the fabulous UUCW Choir — and delicious treats provided after today’s service!
