What we're about

UUCPA is closed to in-person events until further notice. All events are currently being held on-line via Zoom. If a group you are interested in doesn't provide Zoom details, please email us at uucpa@uucpa.org.

Check with your group to find out if/how you are meeting.

Please join us on our journey

We welcome everyone who seeks a religion guided by love, reason and conscience.

Respecting the worth and dignity of each individual, and treasuring what we learn from each person's unique experience, we welcome a diversity of ages, sexual orientations, races, gender identities, classes, abilities, theologies and religious heritages.

We are united not by a single creed, but by a covenant of mutual respect.

We encourage spiritual curiosity in our children and we eagerly continue that learning journey throughout our lives.

We are inspired by music and the arts, science and the beauty of the earth.

We are building a world that is more just, peaceful, and sustainable.

We support each other in community, building relationships with depth and caring concern.

If you also value doubt as well as commitment, are seeking truth and meaning, and want to be a part of a community where people care for each other and the world, join us!

We're part of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto (UUCPA).

Online event

This meditation opportunity is open to all UUCPA participants. Those who already meditate regularly may use it as a time and place to pursue their regular practice. Those for whom meditation is new may use this as a way to try it out, under the guidance of an experienced fellow UU. In order to make this meditation time accessible to people with other Sunday morning commitments (e.g. The Forum and choir), it will have a built in break at 10:20 to allow quiet entrance and exit for participants who need to do so.

Harmonic Circle: Online Via Zoom

Online event

Date: Sunday's Time: 2-4 pm Harmonic Circle meets online every Sunday, 2-4 p.m. using Zoom. If you’d like to join us, email Dan Harper [masked] and he will connect you with this week’s Zoom host. We use an online songbook, take turns choosing and leading songs. You can lead a song a capella, or accompanied by your guitar, ukulele, autoharp, etc. If you’d prefer not to lead a song, it’s fine to just listen in and sing along at home. We sing everything from traditional ballads and African American spirituals, to contemporary songs by Ed Sheeran and Adele, and old standbys like the Beatles and Otis Redding.
