Many paths. One welcoming and diverse community.

Sunday Morning Experience

The Sunday Worship Service is the centerpiece of UUCOV'S faith community and provides the opportunity for all members, friends and visitors to come together as a community to hear inspirational and intellectually stimulating sermons on diverse topics that are consistent with UU's Seven Principles.

Sermons are provided by our UUCOV minister, Rev. Khleber Van Zandt, on most Sundays. Guest clergy, guest speakers, and members speak when the minister is away from the pulpit.

Responsibilities of the Sunday Morning Experience Council are as varied and numerous as our membership! They include:

  • Carefully selecting guest clergy and speakers to assure a meaningful service is provided every Sunday.
  • Assuring that music is an essential part of our Sunday service through the Music Sub-committee. Under the direction of our Music Director, Steve Hanson, opportunities are available to sing in our choir, play an instrument, or just join in as the congregation sings several hymns each Sunday.  For more information email Steve at .
  • Coordinating with Jaye Williams, our Director of Lifespan Religious Education, on Words For All Ages, a story, for our children at the beginning of service, that relates to either the subject of the day's sermon or to our Seven Principles.
  • Confirming that there are hosts to guide the service on Sundays when our minister is not speaking.
  • Making everyone, visitors, new members and current members feel welcomed is a highest priority for UUCOV. To that end, we enlist members as greeters and ushers, who welcome all who attend and assist in making sure everyone has a comfortable seat.
  • Lively conversation and fellowship is a hallmark of UUs – we enjoy coffee and conversation after the service.
