Please join us on Sunday mornings for uplifting and thought- provoking worship.

The upcoming sermon theme is listed below.

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.

Guaranteed for Life

Rev. Elizabeth Lerner Maclay and Rev. Dr. Leon Dunkley

Pondering an old watch leads to thinking: about what does it really mean to be guaranteed for life?  And what are the other ways lifetime promises get confusing, get broken, get kept by us as we move through lives that actually contain a fair amount of promises and premises?  Our sermon this week will look at what it means to offer one’s best and what that means in the lifetime of a congregation, including the story of a tapestry in Denmark and possibly a series  of quilts at UUCSS.  In this service we’ll also welcome a new member, and send off a longtime member: Alexa Fraser, who is leaving her regular membership at UUCSS to become a ministerial intern at River Road.  We’ll still see Alexa for sure, but it won’t be the same and we’re taking a few minutes in the service to honor this change and this path she is taking from us into the larger faith.

Flower Communion

Rev. Liz Lerner Maclay and Sarah Gonzalez DRE

Our annual multigenerational tradition, where we bring flowers for each other, and take one away for ourselves in a service of readings, prayer and music.  This is a blessing we offer each other, as we celebrate the beauties of this community as symbolized by the beauties of the season, and look to the summer when some of us will be away for long or short periods of vacation and travel.  Please bring one or more flowers you may have in your garden or a local shop to share with each other.
