Sunday Worship / August 20, 2017

 Summer Theme

The services for June and July are being delivered mostly by members of the church with a guest preacher or two as well. Our theme for these services is “Learning to Love”

Many aspects of loving others do not come naturally to us. So what pathways do we follow as we learn how to affirm those in our lives for who they are and what they can be? What do we do when we encounter difference, or changes that occur through time and circumstance? And expanding further, what is the path we take when a practice or passion calls to us?

Sunday Worship – August 27, 2017

“Just Powers”, a reflection on democracy as a work in progress by Interim Minister Rev. Evan Keely.

Sunday Worship Services Led by Interim Minister Rev. Keely Start August 6.  Our Interim Minister, Rev. Evan Keely, will start at UUCSS on August 1.  And he is jumping right in!  He will be leading the Sunday worship services on August 6, 13, and 27.  In addition, on August 6, he will be doing a presentation after the service, followed by a question and answer period.  These services and the presentation are an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with Rev. Keely and to learn more about what lies ahead for the congregation during this transition period.  We hope you can come meet him and help get his service as our Interim Minister off to a fabulous start!
