To worship is to ascribe value to something dear to your heart. Our services make space in busy lives to rest for a moment in contemplation, to join in song, to listen for the words of inspiration. Join us at 10:30 on Sunday mornings and listen for the call of your beating heart.
We have a continuing commitment to the spiritually rich and psychologically sound nurture of your children and youth. Our comprehensive program embodies our Unitarian Universalism principles and heritage. We seek to provide our young people with opportunities for worship, learning and fellowship activities that will guide them along their spiritual journey.
All visitors are welcome to stay and partake of coffee, tea, juice & a rotation of yummy snacks. Coffee and tea are 'Fair Trade' provided by our in-house Fair Trade table sponsored by Debbi Daniel-Wayman from her Fair Isle Book Store. There are usually vegan friendly creamer options and treats. You're invited to use one of our "green mugs" which alerts folks that you're new and interested in meeting folks. You're also always welcome to come and fly under the radar to check us out!
What to Expect
Our service starts at 10:30. You will hear an inclusive message at UCH. You are welcome to participate fully, or just sit back to watch and listen.
The service is usually 60 minutes long - more or less! We begin by singing together. The service also includes silent reflection, spoken prayer, a story, and a monetary offering. Rev. Pam Rumancik leads worship about three Sundays per month; guest and lay leaders lead about once a month.
Fair Trade Table
Most Sundays November thru March, member Debbi Daniel-Wayman runs a Fair Trade Table for members and friends to purchase ethical and sustainable gifts, chocolate, tea & coffee. She and her volunteers contribute the profits to the church providing a win-win situation for both artisans and our community. Debbi operates Fair Isle Books on Washington Island during the summer months.
It is impossible to struggle for civil rights, equal rights for blacks, without including whites. Because equal rights, fair play, justice, are all like the air; we all have it or none of us has it. That is the truth of it. ~ Maya Angelou

In addition to the Sunday morning service, members and friends can also gather to study religion and religious history, morality and ethics. They might work to further a cleaner environment or provide help to one another, enjoy one another’s company and just have fun. Like in any organization, church life is enriched the more one participates. The following are some of the committees, events, workshops and programs that help shape this congregation. They are open to anyone interested.
Ways to Get Involved
Life becomes religious whenever we make it so: when some new light is seen, when some deeper appreciation is felt, when some larger outlook is gained, when some nobler purpose is formed, when some task is well done. ~ Sophia Lyon Fahs
