"Getting to Know Us"
Every 1st Sunday after each service, visitors are invited to an informal Q&A with a long-standing UU Church of Charlotte member. Grab a cup of coffee from Freeman Hall and meet downstairs in the Conference Room immediately following either 1st or 2nd service. Hear about another person’s journey to finding her/his spiritual home here at the UUCC. .
TED for the Soul (Evening Version)
Can you think of someone you have known who truly exemplifies the qualities of compassion, empathy, passion, vulnerability, openness, and intensity? This TED speaker posits a theory that modern society systematically suppresses these ways of feeling. Join us in the Bernstein Room on Tuesday, February 3 at 7:00 p.m. to watch the talk and work together as a group to define and understand this provocative message.

Ah-hA Social Justice Auction
We know UUs have a strong history rooted in social justice. And we know our congregation demonstrates its commitment to justice, equity and compassion in human relations through ongoing efforts centered on Homelessness and Affordable Housing, a focus chosen by a vote of the congregation in 2008. But did you know?...The UUCC Social Justice Team makes significant grants to Charlotte-based agencies working to address the root causes of homelessness in our community. And did you know?...The funds for these grants come exclusively from monies raised at the UUCC Auction! This year’s Social Justice Auction will be a fun opportunity for both fundraising and friendraising as we unite to devote our time, energy and resources to this important work. So much goes into the planning and implementation of a successful auction. Please consider volunteering for an organizing committee and/or making a donation. Contact Craig Miller or Trish Hevey, auction co-chairs, for more information or to get involved in our Affordable housing and homelessness Auction – Ah-hA!
