All are welcome to the weekly Sunday worship service at 10:30 am!
UUCSS worship services are central to building community and inspiring us to fully live the principles that guide our lives. They help us support each other in times of joy and sorrow. They can transform us spiritually and intellectually, and deepen our commitment to enhance the lives of our families, our communities and our world.
In our non-credal religion, services reflect the diverse faith traditions from which we come. We celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Easter, Passover, Winter Solstice and other holidays meaningful to our members and friends. These and our unique UU religious festivals, such as the September Water Ceremony and the spring Flower Ceremony also reflect our UU values.
Our extensive and vibrant music program includes a choir, house band, acapella group, Celtic music ensemble, ukulele ensemble, and gifted solo musicians and vocalists. Local and national artists also join us during the year, and we host a popular jazz series.
Children join us in the sanctuary before their classes, and for special services. Nursery care is available for children up to age three. Services are interpreted in American Sign Language and assistive listening devices are available. The sanctuary is wheelchair accessible.
Services at UUCSS help foster our strong community spirit. We hope you will join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am.
