Description: 
Worship is central to congregational life at CUC. Accordingly, we seek a minister with strong preaching talents and the creativity to explore and experiment with different liturgical approaches. Sermon alternatives and art in worship are recent examples. Because music is highly valued by our congregation and integral to our worship service, the successful candidate must have both the capacity and enthusiasm to support an effective music program. Musical ability would be an asset. In recent years we have invested in children and youth programming and seek a candidate who will continue to support and develop these ministries, both for families in the congregation and in our community.
