Be Here Now: Spirituality and Distraction

Mindfulness, being fully present in the moment, sounds simple.  Simple is different than easy. There are a few approaches that may help us get closer to mindfulness.  We’ll explore together where we are, when we are, and how we are.

This worship service will follow our new, community-building format, with people of all ages worshiping together for the first 15 minutes before school-age children and their teachers leave for Religious Education classes.  Nursery care for children up to age 3 is available throughout the service.

Women’s Book Group

Meetings are held at a member’s home. All interested readers are welcome with no long-term obligation. We meet informally, discuss the book, take a break for delicious drink and refreshment, and discuss the future titles.  Questions: Call 301-754-1239.

UUCSS Choir Practice

The choir is open to all generations, and any middle and high school students who want to supplement their school singing experience with additional singing in the church choir are especially welcome. Rehearsals are Thursday nights 7:30pm- 9:30pm in the UUCSS sanctuary. For more information contact our Music Director, Michael Holmes, at musicdirector@uucss.org.

Sunday Worship – September 30, 2018

This service will spotlight Deaf Access and reflect on its meaning here at UUCSS.  We’ll consider together how being inclusive of the Deaf community fits with our UU values and what it has meant to us specifically at UUCSS.  We will look both to our history of Deaf Access and into the future, articulating why this is an important piece of who we are as a community.
