Central Unitarian Church holds worship services on Sunday mornings beginning at 10:30 am.

During the pandemic, CUC has produced its worship services online as well as in hybrid form.  Attendees join us on Zoom (registration required) or can view the service on our Facebook page.  Past services are archived on our YouTube channel and Facebook page. 

To comply with COVID restrictions, we require attendees to wear masks and to register in advance for our limited and socially-distanced seating. To receive an invitation to join us in person or on Zoom, complete the “Contact Us” form at the bottom of every page on this site. 

What to Expect

Services open with the ringing of a bell, a joyful hymn and words of welcome from our service leaders. This time is reserved for such intergenerational activities as the sharing of joys and concerns and stories for all ages.

After the young people go to their classes, the minister provides a meditative reading to draw the congregation into the spirit of worship.  The sermon is the high point of each service and may cover topics from living a spiritual life to social justice, from theology to the understanding of current events in a religious context.  

Music from our musicians and choir, as well as guest musicians, form a vital part of our weekly celebration of faith.  The congregation also sings hymns both traditional and modern. 

The Christmas Eve candlelight service is a favorite at CUC.

Worship With Children and Youth

We are a kid-friendly congregation ready to help with the sometimes challenging job of bringing youngsters to a worship service.  Our religious education classes, from pre-Kindergarten through 10th grade, welcome visitors in addition to regular students.  To arrange a visit, email worship@cucparamus.org. If your infant gets fussy during a service, you may retreat to the lobby at the rear of the sanctuary, where a loudspeaker will allow you to hear the sermon while caring for your child.  

What to Wear

Not sure what Unitarian wear to service?  Informal but neat dress is welcomed as a sign of respect for our house of worship and each other.
