  • Worship on Sundays

    Please join us for Worship at 10am every Sunday.

  • This Sunday at UCCSV - 11/10/19
    We've come to the end of our stewardship series "It's a Wonderful Life" and it's time to celebrate with joy and thanksgiving. At the heart of our relationship to money is living and giving with gratitude—whether the assets we have to give are monetary, or our own capital of time and energy. As a result of aligning our money practices with the courageous vision we see for ourselves and our impact on the world, we end our series by looking for the hope that has been cultivated and the possibility that we will transform fear to gratitude in the act of sharing. Holly will preach, Court Buchanan will give the stewardship moment, we will bless our pledges, and we will celebrate after worship with a feast. Please join us, whether you plan to pledge or not, and help us to have a truly wonder-full Sunday.
     
  • Crossing the River: A Half-Day Retreat on Resilience on November 17th

    Crossing the River: Finding Resiiency in Times of Change - A Half Day Retreat led by Doug Wysocky-Johnson of Lumunos

    Life is filled with transition and change. Change might be positive or expected—like retirement, moving, a new job, relationship, or kids entering your life or leaving the nest. Or, the change might be forced upon us through no choice of our own—think health crisis, or a change of leadership at your place of work. We are always leading up to a change; in the middle of one; or on the tail end of some change. Change changes us, but we aren’t always aware of how, or what to do with it.

    On Sunday, November 17, 2019  from 1:00-4:00 pm at UCC Seneca Valley
    you will have an opportunity to step back from some change in your life and view it through a spiritual lens. Using sacred story, research from the world of business and social science; conversation and time for reflection, you will leave with a different way to view the changes in your life. Light refreshments provided. ALL are welcome.

    Cost: $40 (Scholarship help available. Contact doug@lumunos.org)

  • Collecting Peanut Butter for Germantown Help in November

    This month we are collecting peanut butter for Germantown Help's food pantry. Peanut butter is a great source of self stable protein for all kinds of families. So when you go grocery shopping this month throw an extra jar of peanut butter in the cart and bring it in to church on Sunday. Help us feed needy families in our community!

  • Children's Playground Fundraising
    A couple of members of our congregation have recently offered to provide seed funding for a children's playground to be built on our church grounds. They are also asking for friends and family to celebrate an upcoming birthday by giving to this project. Having a playground would be a signal to our families, and any visiting families, that children are welcome here. if you would like to contribute to this effort of hospitality for our children and young families, we have recently created an online donation option on our website to collect donations for this project. Thank you for support!
