What to Do Here

UUCR is a vibrant, active community. We always have something going on!  

The year is full of annual, congregation-wide events that bring us together in celebration, worship, service, and fellowship. For example, we come together for our multigenerational Ingathering Water Ceremony every September, hold a festive fundraiser for the music program in February, and collectively spruce up UUCR's buildings and grounds in April (Do It Day).  

Following are more specific ideas to get involved, whether you're interested in worship and music, education and enrichment, social justice, or fellowship with other UUs.
