Temporary changes to Sunday School

Due to how contagious the Omicron variant is and the danger it poses to the most vulnerable of us especially, the Ministry with Young People has decided to pause our in-person Sunday School. Child Care will still be available, outdoors, each Sunday.
Sunday School for children & youth will be on Zoom at 10 a.m. Details will be in the Friday email updates, which you can receive by contacting iucc@iucc.org 
Sunday School for children & youth will be online for Jan. 16, and we will continue to monitor the situation and adjust as needed. Watch for updates on Fridays in your email (IUCC “eblast” and MYP email) to confirm whether we are still all virtual or when we may be returning in-person.

Worship at 9:30 and 11 a.m. in person and online every Sunday

Worship service will by in person, online here and on our Facebook page at 9:30 and 11 a.m. Hit the “play” button on the video and it will take you to the service as it happens. A replay should be available below at 11 a.m. and on YouTube and Facebook. Thank you for your patience as we adjust to an ever changing world. Join fellow worshippers on the patio for coffee hour at 10:30 and noon. Sign up to help here.

You can also participate in weekly worship at IUCC via our Facebook Page. www.facebook.com/irvineucc. Ask to join our various Facebook groups, including the Group Page for Irvine United Congregational Church, and IUCC Diversity & Inclusion group page.
