Q. What does it mean to be a Unitarian Universalist?
A. Very generally, Unitarian Universalists have agreed to live by seven principles and have identified six sources of religious tradition. These principles and sources have been arrived at through a democratic process involving our membership and may occasionally be amended the same way. Detailed answers to this question and others about our beliefs, tenets, and history can be found here. A good source for answers to this questions can be found in a book called 100 Questions that Non-Members ask about Universal Unitarianism by John Sias from UU Church of Nashua.
Q. What makes your church different from others?
A. There is no test of creed to join. Within our congregation, you’ll find diversity of belief. In our religious education program, we empower our children to become free-thinking individuals who know and respect themselves and others, contribute to their human and natural communities and make informed decisions regarding their spiritual paths.
Q. Will you take up a collection?
A. Yes, but we do not expect visitors to contribute. We invite you to be our guest!
Q. Where do I go when I get to the church?
A. As you enter the front foyer, you will be greeted by a member of LCUUC and given the opportunity to learn about our church and Unitarian Universalism. The sanctuary is on your right.
Q. What should I wear to church?
A. Come as you are. Be comfortable. You’ll see quite a variety: “Sunday best” to casual!
Q. What are Sunday services like?
A. Go to Sunday Services for service details.
Q. Can I bring my children?
A. Religious education for youth and children is an important part of our mission and is available during the service. In fact, our RE program is one big reason people are attracted to this church. Our young people stay in the service through the offertory and then leave together for their Religious Education classes. You are welcome to attend your child’s class to observe. Children who are able to sit quietly are invited to remain in the service with their parents if they’d like. Child care is available for infants and toddlers.
Q. Is your building disability accessible?
A. Yes. We have an ADA compliant non-gendered restroom, hearing assistance headphones, wheelchair and scooter seating, and seating for persons of size.
Q. Where and When are Services held?
A. Services are held at the Lake Country Unitarian Universalist Church at W299N5595 Grace Drive, Hartland, WI 53029. They are held every Sunday from 10 am to 11:15 am. Beverages are available after the service. To find directions and maps, go to Directions. There is plenty of parking available around the building.
Q. Will I be pressured to join?
A. Absolutely not! We know that many people prefer to church shop anonymously before they start making relationships. As you choose, you may sign our Visitor’s Ledger and sign up for our monthly newsletter, and you are welcome to join us for coffee and discussion after the service in the social hall. Make yourself known – or not. But we all enjoy meeting our guests.
Q. I have other questions. How do I get them answered?
A. Please contact us at (262) 369-1703 or admin@lcuuc. We’re happy to help you find the answers you seek.
