We come together at 10:30 am each Sunday morning to shape and define what is of value and worth to us, and to sing, meditate, and share our lives with one another. Our services focus on topics of spiritual, social and current concerns. Our Worship is designed to meet the diversity of spiritual paths that are embraced within Unitarian Universalism. Sunday mornings offer a celebration of community, an intellectual challenge, and a deepening of the heart.
Our Sunday Services are varied and unique, but generally we have an opening piece of music followed by a welcome statement, then a call to worship. Next there is a time for church announcements, and that is often followed by a time for sharing brief personal joys and sorrows. Then we often sing a hymn, which is followed by a children’s story.
After the children’s story, our children usually leave the service to attend classes or play. After the children’s recessional we collect the weekly offering with musical accompaniment, and then the main speaker is introduced. The Minister or guest speaker delivers the sermon, and we conclude with another hymn followed by closing words and then a final musical postlude. After the service we usually have a light lunch, coffee, and refreshing conversation.
There is no dress code requirement for our church. Some folks wear blue jeans and a T-shirt, others wear shorts and a tank top, and a few dress more traditionally in a conservative style. Wear what you are comfortable in, and you will be welcomed!
Upcoming Worship Services
March Theme: Truth
March 3: Fairness vs. Forgiveness
By Rev. Lori Kyle
Many of us are deeply moved by ideals fueled by justice. From justice often emerges an appreciation for outcomes based on fairness. We will explore how an allegiance to fairness potentially impacts our ability or willingness to embrace forgiveness.
March 10: Confessions of a Clueless Conformist
By Rev. Cathy Corbin-Manino
The deadly blissful ignorance of white privilege. It isn’t something we actively take or demand; society has given it to us. “Unless we change our institutions, they will continue to give it, however noble our intentions.” (Paraphrased from Harry Brod)
March 17: Three Slants on Truth
By Dr. Kaden Sheffield
In today’s post-truth era, truth is more precious than ever. One of the main tasks we face is finding what rings true for us. Perhaps the first step involves knowing what kind of truth we are searching for. Let us count the ways….
March 24: Big Daddy Sound Bytes
By Rev. Cathy Corbin-Manino
Big Daddy is not my favorite Tennessee Williams character, but he can sure smell a lie. How do we learn to live with the “odor of mendacity”?
March 31: Fighting for Equitable Healthcare
By Dr. Hiral Tipirneni
Healthcare is a moral obligation. Let’s develop a collaborative approach that improves access to healthcare today as well as for generations to come.
