One Place, All Faiths
Creating a Caring, Justice-seeking Community

We invite you to join us in our mission and share our vision . . .

Click above to see announcements…

A center for liberal religious education for people of all ages

A haven for those seeking a positive spiritual experience

A community of caring and committed individuals diverse in identity and theology

A positive force in the community for justice and equality

Cap off the service with a ‘cuppa’ coffee and convivial conversation. 

Sunday Services begin at 11 a.m. They take place in “The Dome,” our signature sanctuary (above, flanked by our “Small Dome” on the right, UUCT’s original meeting place), and are typically followed by coffee and fellowship, along with a host of activities – some planned, others spontaneous. You never can tell what might be happening on any given Sunday (unless you check here on our website, or come and find out for yourself). See you in church!

‘The Challenge of Challenging Times ‘
The Reverend Roger Grugel

Each of us at some point in our life will encounter difficult, even life-threatening, events. How do we not just survive, but actually thrive, from experiencing personally trying circumstances.

Rev. Roger Grugel is currently employed by Moorings Park, a retirement community in Naples, Florida, as an associate chaplain in charge of spiritual care. Roger was previously employed as a hospice chaplain for Avow Hospice in Naples. Roger received his Master of Divinity from Meadville-Lombard Theological School and his Jurist Doctorate from the University of North Dakota School of Law.

Roger was an intern minister here at UUCT from 2011-2012.


UUCT 6oth Anniversary
UUCT will be celebrating its 60th Anniversary in September and our first commemorative event was a T-shirt design competition. We had great participation with many very creative submissions so we put the choice of finalist up to a congregational vote. John Powers is our winner ! This design is now the official logo for the 60th Anniversary Celebration and you will be seeing a lot of it. T-shirts are being manufactured as you read this. WATCH FOR ORDERING DETAILS IN YOUR SUNDAY SERVICE BULLETIN.

Please visit our Month of Sundays page where you will get a long-range view of our services at a glance!

There is always something interesting, fun, challenging,
