Sundays mornings are central to our life together. This is the day our community comes together to participate in the Sunday worship services and to deepen relationships.
10:30 AM – 11:30 AM: Service
Music, poetry, silence, and generosity are woven together during the worship hour, giving expression to the vibrancy of this “living tradition” while inviting personal connection with eternal truths. In the first portion of the worship service children are encouraged to join the minister at the chancel for a story or conversation, before being ushered to the Religious exploration classes.
11:30 AM – 12:30 PM: Social Hour
Fellowship continues with coffee and conversation in the Social Hall. We invite you to join us, meet other people, discuss the service, and learn more about our congregation.
Everyone is Welcome
Child care for infants and preschoolers is available from 10:00 to 12:00. If you are bringing children on a first-time visit to the Fellowship, we recommend that you arrive early to meet the teacher and/or child care provider.
We welcome all persons, regardless of race, ethnicity, or national origin; gender or gender identification; affectional preference or sexual orientation; age; physical or mental challenge; or social, economic, or marital status.
Here are the plans for Sunday mornings this church year for grades K-8. Except as noted, children start in the Sanctuary at 10:30 and are sung out to their classes/activities. Classes go until 11:30 or 11:40. Children are expected to remain in the Sanctuary for multigenerational services.
Child care for children ages 6 and under is available every Sunday in the Block Room.
MARCH’s Theme is REDEMPTION
Sunday, March 5th at 10:30 am: “To Be Stewards of Memory”
Worship Leader: the Reverend Stefanie Etzbach-Dale
Worship Associate: Jorie Schulz
Choir Director: Dawn Reyen, Pianist: Larry Chinn
It is said that forgetfulness is the root of much evil and that redemption lies in our ability to remember. Today we kick-off UUFRC’s annual pledge drive through celebration of the fact that membership in liberal religious community helps us remember what is most important. This service will include a New Member Ingathering Ceremony and music by UUFRC’s Choir! Return to UUFRC at 3pm for the Multi-Faith Coalition Interfaith Songfest!
Sunday, March 12th at 10:30 am: “Seussical Wisdom”
Worship Leaders: the Reverend Stefanie Etzbach-Dale & UUFRC’s Youth Group
Worship Associate: David Vallerga, Pianist: Dawn Reyen
Unitarian Universalism affirms that wisdom can be found in many places. While best known for his children’s books, the writing and drawings of Theodor Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) promoted ideals many considered radical. UUFRC’s House band will be performing.
Sunday, March 19th at 10:30: “The Art and Practice of Redemption”
Worship Leader: Kai Marks,
Worship Associate: Joanne McMahon, Pianist: Larry Chinn
Join us as we explore how to create redemption in our lives and in the world, redeeming ourselves and the world one little bit at a time. After all, what looks small is really large, and one seemingly insignificant act of redemption may be the most important and powerful thing we ever do.
Sunday, March 26th at 10:30 am: “Hope is Not Idle”
Worship Leader: the Reverend JD Benson
Worship Associate: Sarah Skovlund Pianist: Dawn Reyen
In a world in which circumstances seem out of control it’s too easy to settle in to acceptance of the unacceptable. How do we activate our hope for better, for our best dreams for the Common Good? Often there are many and various ways to help effect change. How do we “”brave up”” and make a difference?
