UUCP Events

The following are typical UUCP Events. Not all of these events may occur every year. Most are social activities, but also function as an important source of income that helps to support our congregation. Please check our Calendar to confirm dates.


  • Karaoke Party – A great family event with food and lots of singing and music. Great way to connect with friends and invite new people to join the fun. Location is Flat Rock. Contact:Finance.
  • Service Auction – This annual fundraiser has played an integral part in the community spirit, social life and fiscal health of UUCP since its inception. It’s also a festive event that is fun to attend. Members, friends, local merchants and restaurants donate the “services” – food, wine, dinners, baskets, crafts, art, skills, etc., that are listed in a catalog. Events that you bid on offer easy social connections with members and friends all year long. And the proceeds from the event represents a healthy portion of our operating budget. Contact: Finance
  • Annual Stewardship Campaign Dinner – Our Stewardship Campaign is highlighted by our Annual Stewardship dinner at Flat Rock Brook Nature Center, which is attended by members and friends of UUCP. Also known as the Canvas Dinner, this annual event provides us with the opportunity to financially recommit to a vision of racial, cultural and theological diversity by financially supporting the work and mission of UUCP. We celebrate our accomplishments, plan for the future and financially support the work we do as a community of faith. Contact:Finance
  • Circle Supper – Coordinated by the Membership Team, these intimate gatherings of approximately 8 people are held each spring at the homes of congregation members. The host provides the entrée, guests supply beverages, appetizers, desserts and side dishes. This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know each other in a comfortable setting. Contact:Membership
  • Murray Grove Retreat – The UUCP Retreat, at the Murray Grove Retreat and Conference Center is a weekend of community building, exploration and worship. There is ample free time to hike, play games and socialize, as well as some time to do congregational work, or just explore some aspect of our religious journey and religion. A children’s program is also included. People generally arrive Friday evening after supper and depart on Sunday after a service in the historic Potter Chapel, where John Murray preached in the late 1700’s .

  • Annual Meeting – In June, the end of our church year, UUCP holds an Annual Meeting. Elections are held to fill vacancies on the Board of Trustees and the Committee on Ministry. We approve a budget for the coming year and conduct other business that may be required for the successful operation of the congregation.
  • General Assembly –  Join thousands of other Unitarian Universalists as we gather to hear terrific speakers, attend dynamic, entertaining programs and informative workshops, and network with other congregation leaders, share best practices, and learn from one another. Return to your congregation reinvigorated and inspired to put your values to work. For more information see UUA General Assembly
