January's Divine Faculty is Faith

Faith is the ability to believe, intuit, and perceive.
Faith blesses my day and paves my way!

Sunday January 12

At 10 am Rev. Debra Carter Williams
Title: "Finding Peace in the Storm"

Rev. Debra WilliamsEvery week, we end the Sunday service by singing these words: "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me." This is a powerful statement of intention, but what does it mean when faced with the struggles of life and the present condition of the world? Join us as we learn how to remain centered when the storms of life approach.

Tithe Team

The tithe team makes recommendations to the board about which local non-profit organizations will receive our tithes in 2020.  If you want to give suggestions, contact:
  • Jane Tappmeyer
  • Susan Liddell
  • Claudia Hamlett
The deadline is end-of-day Sunday, January 12. (Sorry for the short notice! We’re trying to work with the board meeting schedules and payment schedules.)


Team lead –  Frank Niedermayer
This team, on a rotating basis, welcomes people to UCR on Sunday mornings and occasionally for a special event, like a memorial service.  They also serve as ushers during the service. It’s a great way to meet people with very little time commitment (you’ll be at UCR anyway!). Right now, there are openings for the 1st Sunday of the month, the 3rd Sunday of the month, and the 5th Sunday (March, May, August, November).  See Frank if you want to sign up or get more information.
