Sunday Worship

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.

Sunday August 6 at 10:30 am:  “The Harvest”
Worship Leaders:  Kathy Warne and Laura Zimmerman
Worship Associate:  Kate Hand
At this service we celebrate the ancient holiday of Lammas, which marks the beginning of the harvest season. In the first planting societies, late summer was the time to begin the threshing of grain, to harvest what the village had sown and store it for the winter. In this service, we’ll explore what harvesting might still mean for modern people. For our own Harvest Celebration, you are invited to bring an offering of vegetables from your garden, some berries you have gathered, or any small item that represents what you have given for the enrichment of the community.

Sunday August 13 at 10:30 am:    “Path of Most Resistance”

“On the path of life you come to a mountain. You have 3 choices: go over, go around or go through. Being the person you are, you choose a fourth, and wait for the mountain to go away.” —Lee Rossi

Sunday August 27 at 10:30 am:  “Liberal Women Ministers”
Worship Leader:  Geri Kennedy
Worship Associate:  Jorie Schulz
Ministry has historically been the purview of men and for the two largest religions, Christianity and Islam it continues to be the case.  However, just over 50% of the Unitarian Universalist ministers are women.  Learn how this has come about, the struggles, the ups and downs and how it has affected our religion today.  There will also be some great music!
