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.
February’s theme is: Religious Authority
Sunday, February 12th at 10:30 am “Can We Love Our Neighbors?”
Worship Leaders: Rabbi Nat Azray & the Reverend Stefanie Etzbach-Dale
Worship Associate: Dick Edminster
Pianist: Larry Chinn
What do our religious values tell us about how to live with one another when we may differ so radically in our experiences and belief systems? Should we/can we love our neighbors? Join us, as we hear from our Temple Beth Jacob neighbor!
Sunday, February 19th at 10:30 am “Rise In the Sea: UU Movement Moments & Love’s Persistent Call”
Guest Speaker: the Reverend Dara Kaufman-LeDonne Olandt
Worship Associate: Ellie Kilpatrick
Pianist: Larry Chinn
What do these times require of us? How will we sustain our hearts in turbulent times that call for compassion, action, and test our country’s capacity for civil discourse? How does our larger Unitarian Universalist movement inspire and challenge us to rise together in service of a more just world? All are welcome for this service of inquiry and hope. This Sunday is also a Share the Plate Sunday with HIP housing.
Sunday, February 26th at 10:30 am “Wild and Precious Life”
Worship Leader: Sarah Skovlund
This service is based on the Mary Oliver poem: a Summer Day. At the end of the poem she asks, “What will you do with your one wild and precious life?” The congregation will get to know the hopes, cares and dreams of eight members and friends of the Fellowship and a little bit about each of their Wild and Precious Lives.
