UUCCWC is dedicated to welcoming people of diverse races, ethnicities, economic statuses, abilities, ages, sexual orientations, and gender identities.  We became a certified Welcoming Congregation in 2005, and have formed a task force to work on renewing this designation, and expect to complete our renewal in May 2017.  For our Movie Night, we showed “Milk” (about Harvey Milk) November 12, 2016 and will show “The Danish Girl” February 18, 2017.

Numerous lesbian, gay, bisexual,  and transgender people regularly attend services, and many church members have family members who identify as LGBTQ.  We are a progressive and socially involved congregation, and the people of UUCCWC march in the Portland Pride Parade every June,  joining with as many as 11 other UU churches in the area for a massive parade group.

Be part of a warm and loving congregation that cherishes people of all races, ethnicities, economic statuses, abilities, ages, sexual orientations, and gender identities.  Prepare to be delighted!
