The North Wall Art Space at UUCM currently features the work of Maple Grove artist, dancer, singer/songwriter and entrepreneur Beverly Tipton Hammond. Her “Hattitudes” series first appeared as part of the “Grace” exhibit at the MN African American Heritage Museum and Gallery. These acrylic portraits of women in exuberant, colorful hats are a paean to the long history of women and “church hats”, and is inspired by Ms. Hammond’s passion for millinery. Beverly is the Worship Leader at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. She will be visiting UUCM on Sunday, June 23rd and available to discuss her work after the worship service. And, look for Beverly to be singing at UUCM some time in the future!
Call the Unitarian Universalist Church of Minnetonka at 952-473-5900 for opening times. The show is also open by appointment. Please contact Christy Dachelet at email@example.com to arrange a visit or if you are interested in purchasing the art. This show is too fun to miss!

This class is part 2 of a 2- part series where we will continue to respond to your questions, and explore information and opportunities about our particular church, and how we relate to the wider UU Region and the Unitarian Universalist Association. Visitors and friends who have attended both of these “Exploring UUism” classes are eligible to become members of UUCM. Current members and friends are very welcome to join in the class! Facilitated by Barb Halsey, Membership Ministry.

Co-Sponsored by UUCM and West Metro Climate Action
In honor of World Ocean Day, Macalester College Professor Louisa Bradtmiller will provide information about two climate change related impacts on the oceans: warming of ocean waters and ocean acidification. The increasing acidity of ocean water makes it difficult for tiny creatures at the bottom of the food web to form their shells. The effects could threaten the seafood that one billion people depend upon for their source of protein. Join us to learn more about this topic and Dr. Bradtmiller’s ongoing research. This event is FREE and open to the public.
Scroll to the bottom of our Worship page to listen to sermons, guest speakers and musical performances from past UUCM services. New uploads are added regularly – check back often!
Are you able to help keep the UUCM grounds looking great? We are asking for a little help with light work on your schedule. Please contact Mary Cotton for questions/needs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 764-442-5808.
The Performing Arts Series at UUCM offers concerts, musical events and church variety shows to the congregation and the entire local community.
