“UU and You” Newcomer Orientation

“UU and You,” as we call it, is an introduction to our faith, its principles and history, as well as an overview of our church. This is a great way to start if you’re interested in learning more about us, and it’s also a requirement for membership to UUCD.

This two-session class is usually held on Sundays directly after coffee hour from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. A light lunch is provided, as well as childcare if needed.

Newcomers are encouraged to attend. Please email for more  information about this class and dates of the next class.

UUA Common Read

UUCD participates in the UUA’s Common Read program. The 2020 selection is The Indigenous People’s History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz.  We held a 3-session discussion of the book in April, 2020.

Corruption of Our Democracy

The Unitarian Universalists of Central Delaware (UUCD) hosted a series of monthly programs and discussions on the topic of “The Corruption of Our Democracy.”

This free public service program of readings and/or videos and group discussion is designed to raise awareness of some of the challenges facing the future of democracy in our country. In the first meeting, participants viewed the video Legalize Democracy. This video provided an excellent historical review of court decisions determining rights of individuals and corporations – detailing the influence of corporations on US Democracy. At the second meeting, we explored the impacts of structural racism on our democracy.  Finally, we explored the Sanctuary City movement and the response of the City of San Francisco Board of Governors in response to federal threats.

This topic – “The Corruption of Our Democracy”- encompasses much that is important to our lives and to social and environmental justice worldwide.

Bible Study: Ways to Read and Understand the Good Book

Yes, Bible Study! Learn more about the history and context of assorted bible stories.  This classic piece of literature has a great influence on our society and culture, and yet is so often misused and misunderstood. Explore its meanings, insights, and applications into the human condition and to our spiritual journeys.
