Artist of the Month Gallery
The Artist of the Month Gallery strives to bring high quality artwork to the walls of our sanctuary. We invite and encourage artists from a wide variety of media to exhibit in our gallery. Our goal is to enhance the religious experience of the congregation through artistic expressions. Members of the committee are engaged in inviting and evaluating prospective exhibiters, hanging the art show, sales, publicity, and staffing the reception for the artist. The group meets the second Tuesday at 9:30 am. Contact Margot Garcia at 327-3946 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Share the Plate Program

Donation Basket
Share the Plate is an ongoing social justice activity of this church. Once a month, we share half of all non-pledge income in the offertory basket with a local nonprofit whose mission puts into action one or more of our Principles. Since its implementation, Share the Plate has increased congregants’ awareness of local efforts to improve our community as well as provide them information on how to help. As the name implies, Share the Plate is always split 50-50 between the local charity and our own church.

 

 
Sponsored Tours
UUCT offers sponsored tours for like minded people, both members and non-members, to travel together and learn about our community and world.  The tour cost includes a tax deductible donation to UUCT.
