MEDITATION

A small group meets each Wednesday in the sanctuary for a time of meditation and shared prayer. No prior experience with meditation needed! One person shares a brief reflection, followed by 20 minutes of silence, and then prayer for any needs raised by the group. We meet between 12:10pm and 12:50pm so that workers can fit this in during their lunch hour. Contact UCT’s office (850-878-7385) for further information.

LIFE STORIES GROUPS

The first Life Stories group began in 2004 and continues today. The groups provide an opportunity for each member to share their “life story” uninterrupted for an evening session and be affirmed in their life journey. Those who participate in a life story group grow into a close and supportive community. We have had a men’s group, an LGBT group, and several women’s groups. The groups meet twice a month and many continue to meet monthly after everyone has shared their life story. Anyone may join a group, but once one is established and membership closes, others interested must wait for a new group to form. Contact the church office at 850-878-7385 for more information.

A Welcome To All

A Welcome To All

We are a church that takes Jesus’ command to “love one another” seriously. We are a welcoming church, open and affirming to the LGBT community and accessible to all who seek to worship with us and join the journey of faith. We expect diversity and look for it in people and ideas. We believe that “God is still speaking” and that every person is loved by God and worthy to be an active, vibrant, and generous participant in the Body of Christ, the church.
