The Unitarian Universalist Community of Cambria offers many opportunities to grow spiritually, be challenged intellectually and to develop friendships. Joining one of the many committees or social groups is a wonderful way to become better acquainted with members and friends of the UUCC and to put our UU values into practice. Explore and discover all the various activities at our church.
A pleasant way to get to know other church members is by attending our potluck dinners. Conversation and food are plentiful. Check the newsletter for Potluck dinners. Come and enjoy an evening of food and fellowship.

Women's Discussion Group
Please Come and Join Us!
The UUCC offers a Women’s Group that meets the first Monday of each month from 2:00 -3:30 p.m.. We would love to have you join us if you are interested in going a bit deeper with discussions and topics. We usually meet on Zoom but we have also met in person. Zoom allows people who are traveling or not staying in Cambria to join the meeting from wherever they are so it works out well for many individuals in the group. We like to take turns leading the group and the leader of the group each month usually picks the topic for the next meeting.
Joining a discussion group is a great way to get to know other women in our church community. Over time, participants often build deep connections with one another through the sharing and heartfelt discussions that take place during the meetings. We would love to have new members or friends of UUCC join us. Since this is a drop-in group, you don’t have to be there every time although we would love it if you were. Each month a Zoom Invitation is emailed out to those interested in attending. Also, the topic is often mailed out before the next meeting to give you time to think about what you would like to say.
UUs celebrate broadening their horizons. The RE Committee currently offers a Thursday morning Meditation Group which meets 10:00am at the UUCC Sanctuary at 786 Arlington Street.
We also are in periodic discussion of this year's UUA shared reading, Mistakes and Miracles written by Nancy Palmer Jones and Karin Lin.
Other activities in recent past have included:
On Being Discussion Group (www.onbeing.org).
History of Unitarian Universalism classes
The RE committee is open to suggestions for other ways in which we can enrich our UU knowledge.
