Welcome to the Unitarian Church of Montpelier!
Summer has traditionally been a time when we take a break from our regular Sunday services. During this time of Covid-19, physical distancing, and the continued closure of our building it is even more important for us to stay connected. We are offering three ways for you to participate in our virtual faith adventure this summer: find out more here, or read on...
Continuing our tradition of over 12 years, we will have meetings for silent and spoken Summer Meditation this summer. These will be held on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. on Zoom, beginning on June 14th and continuing through September 6th, except for June 28, July 26, and August 16, when Rev. Joan will be leading Summer Services.
Tired of staying home and need to get out on the open road? Then join us on our East to West Virtual UU Road Trip! Each week in the e-news, we’ll post a link for worship at the church we’re “visiting.” It will be a recently recorded service, not “live” on Zoom. You may watch it at 10am if you wish to keep to a worship routine, or any other time that suits you.
At 11am each Sunday we invite you to join our online UCM Road Trip Coffee Hour to share impressions from your worship experience with others from UCM! And it is a great way to stay connected with our UCM Community.
We at UCM are doing our best to hold together the foundations of our beloved community, and we can’t do it without the ongoing weekly support we count on from our congregation. During this time that we are unable to meet in person, please consider giving online to keep our finances steady.
