During the regular church year (Labor Day to Father's Day), we hold two worship services, at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m., for most of the year. The first service is interpreted in American Sign Language (as of October 18th 2015), as well as coffee hour. Please join us in the Community Hall between services for an informal coffee hour, starting between 10:45-11:30.

Flowers of Thy Heart--A Mother's Day Service

Rev. Dr. Leon Dunkley

Be among the flowers that are busy being born, especially on this lovely Mother's Day!  A poet writes,

He looked beneath his shirt today at a wound in his breast so deep and wide
From that wound, a lovely flower grew from somewhere deep inside

Out of the struggles in life arise the most lovely of possibilities.  What is being born within you on this day?  What flowers are gently growing out of the rainfall?

Circle of Life

Sarah Gonzalez, CRE, Rev. Elizabeth Lerner Maclay,  Rev. Dr. Leon Dunkley

Unitarian Universalists all over the world begin worship each Sunday by lighting a chalice, connecting us across geographic, theological, and a   variety of other differences. But how did the flaming chalice become   such a core part of our faith? Join us to explore the history of this precious symbol and to participate in two of our most sacred rituals; our child dedication ceremony and our bridging ceremony.

Where's theFire

Rev. Elizabeth Lerner Maclay

May 29 (One service at 10:30 am; No sign language interpretation will be available for this service)
Fire and Desire

Crystal Mann

What is a goal without passion? I dare say it is simply a candle with no flame. How can we learn to ignite ourselves for real change? We will explore these questions together, although we may not land on an answer!
