Sunday Services

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

The upcoming sermon theme is listed below.

During the summer months, from Father's Day through Labor Day, one service is held at 10:30 am. These services are interpreted in American Sign Language. Nursery Care and Religious Education for children through grade 12 are offered during the summer worship services. An informal coffee hour follows the service.

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 second service is interpreted in American Sign Language (as of May 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.

An Encyclical for Us: Where Climate Change and Racial Justice Collide

UUCSS Members, Daniel and Melissa Clark

UUCSS members Daniel and Melissa Clark will share from their own inner challenges as individuals and as a couple, as they contemplate this question, “If we were really functioning at full capacity, what kind of trouble might we create out there in the world?” As we look out and confront the endless array of wicked problems facing our world, let us periodically look inward to determine what we need to be doing, as individuals and as a community, to be stronger together .

Patience Flowers, Joy Abides

Rev Leon Dunkley

In each of us, there is a fire burning quietly.  The fire is life itself and it does not burn forever.  Questions rise to the surface before us: What will we do with this fire?  Will we be warmed by it or singed?  Will we share it lovingly, share it often and share it well?  Although the answers to these questions are clear but life gets in our way sometimes.  The deeper question is how does one choose patience and choose joy when life gets in the way?
