On Sunday, April 29 at 10:30 am, the service will be Speed-Faithing with Rev. Diane Rollert and music by Sandra Hunt, Maider Martineau and special guest, guitarist Chris Verillo.
Aren’t you curious to know what the people in the congregation surrounding you think about the big — and little — questions of life, love and faith? You’ve heard of speed-dating, but what a about speed-faithing? Join us for an interactive service to engage our curiosity as we spin a magic wheel that will determine the questions we ask each other about our values, fears, hopes, passions, and more. Mystery, risk, inspiration, spiritual engagement and fun guaranteed.

After the service, UCM's annual fundraising event, BidSunday, will be held from 9:30 am - 2:00 pm. BidSunday features good fun and good food that accompany the day’s offering of fixed-price items, silent-auction opportunities, live-auction, temptations and raffle prizes – all offered by UCM members and friends. Childcare will be provided.
