MID-WEEK STUDIES

From time to time UCT offers mid-week studies. Sometimes a member will lead a study about a book that they want others to read and discuss. During Advent and Lent we often provide mid-week studies. For example, we discussed Karen Armstrong’s “New Interpretation of Genesis” in 2007 and Borg/Crossan’s “The Last Week” in 2008. For 2010 we listened to 6 interviews with inspiring people of faith (not necessarily Christians) and discussed the implications for our own faith journeys.

SEMINARS AND FORUMS

UCT has sponsored seminars and forums for our own members as well as the general public on several occasions. In 2002 we held a forum to discuss the proposed invasion of Iraq. We had a diverse panel which included a Muslim and someone committed to non-violence. In 2003 we hosted a public forum on Free Trade with speakers representing rural social movements from US, Brazil, and Ecuador. In 2009 we hosted a forum with the Immokalee Farm Workers. We have also had a public screening of two provocative documentaries.

Pastors Mark & Brenda Dowell

Co-Pastors Mark & Brenda Dowell

The Rev. Brenda Dowell and Rev. Dr. Mark Dowell have been in ministry together throughout their years of marriage. They have served churches in Louisiana and Tennessee, and are now happy to be serving in Florida at UCT, a warm and welcoming church.

Rev. Brenda holds an M.Div. from Sewanee and has received awards in theology and ethics. Brenda has a B.S. in biology with a minor in chemistry. She is a dynamic speaker and loves combining science and faith to share deeper truths.

Rev. Dr. Mark holds an M.Div. and doctorate degree from Sewanee and is also a dynamic speaker. Dr. Mark's doctoral thesis was Art and Meditation and its Effects on Self-Esteem. He is also a certified Reiki practitioner.

The co-pastors believe in a radical hospitality and that EVERYONE is welcome at the table.

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.
