Music at UUCH
Music is a very important part of our UUCH community life. Not only do we offer a variety of different styles and opportunities for music in our Sunday services, but there are several other ways we share our enjoyment of music throughout the year.
Each month during the church year, in conjunction with our monthly themes for our Sunday services, we have a Music Project. These projects provide opportunities for all musicians (singers and instrumentalists) to participate in a Sunday service, at different levels of skill. Everyone can join in. You simply need to choose the months that work for your schedule and level of commitment and come out for one or more rehearsals for those months.
Rehearsals for the Music Projects are Sunday mornings at 9:30 am in the Worship Room. Exceptions are when the Afterchoir are practising. Then we gather in the Minister’s office. This is usually on the last Sunday of each month.
Music Projects for this church year (2017-18) are planned for the following dates:
Sunday, September 17th
Sunday, October 15th
Sunday, November 19th
Sunday, December 10th
Sunday, January 21st
Sunday, February 18th
Sunday, March 18th
Sunday, April 15th
Sunday, May 6th
Sunday, June 10th
The Afterchoir (our folk/rock group) meets most Wednesdays, from approximately 4:45 to 6:15 pm. This group usually contributes their unique and vibrant style to the last service of each month. They also play on special occasions during the church year, such as our church picnic and coffeehouse.

Winter Warm-up Coffeehouse
Every February we host a lively evening of music, poetry, skits and comedy, offered by our talented members and special guests. It is a fabulous way to warm up the winter with entertainment, fellowship, refreshments, and good community fun. All are welcome; members, friends, family and visitors. There is a donation basket at the door, and we share potluck snacks.
In April 2015, ten enthusiastic members and friends presented two nights of Dinner Theatre as a fundraiser. It was a great success for participants, attendees and the church coffers. In the spring of 2016, a cast of 15 presented 3 shows, on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, May 12, 13, and 14.
Verses and Vittles
In the fall of 2016, we had a great evening reminiscing about our history, with food and music covering the 139 years since we held our first service.
We like to take our music ‘on the road’ at times, spreading cheer to those who are ill or have trouble getting out to services and events.
