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.

Loving, Caring, and Fatherhood (6-16-2019)

Good Morning! And, thank you Isaac for the Cat Stevens song, “Father and Son.” I like the song for having both the words of affection and the son, in the end, being his own person. There is the caring and the appreciation and the response of the son importantly saying that it was time for…

Courage for the Journey (6-9-2019)

If you’re on the Worship Committee, you may know that finding the image for the cover of the Order of Service is a part of preparing the service that I find delightful and meaningful. I have decided that I’ve been selfishly holding on to this task rather than sharing the ministry, so I’m looking forward…

Flower Ceremony (6-2-2019)

Norbert and Maja Čapek guided a faith community to support one another, in ritual and in mission, during a time when the world needed something entirely different from liberal faith than it ever had before, a time when people needed something from their faith to help sustain them in new ways, a time when people…

Honoring Self, Others, and Faith (5-26-2019)

Today I will be speaking about the concept of honoring. Before I venture into the meat of the topic, I would like to start with a little anecdote. I am a martial artist. While I no longer practice actively, I have been shaped by my art. Lessons about balance, perseverance, and indomitable spirit resonate with me to this day. I had a…

Reflection on Gender Identity (5-19-2019)

Gender as a concept is dazzling in its possibilities. Our dominant culture and our language might lead us to act as if there are only two genders. When we listen to the real experiences of all of our friends and neighbors and siblings (and for some of us when we listen to the songs of…

The Wonder of Creation (5-12-2019)

Has anyone here ever made something? What are some things you have made? Cake? Lego sculptures? Paintings? Paper bag puppets? What else? For those who have created things, was there ever a time when your creation didn’t turn out the way you wanted? Was there a time when the materials didn’t work, or you forgot…

Earth My Body

Unitarian Universalists affirm and promote respect for the interdependent web of which we are a part. Following up on last week’s Earth Day service, we remember that the concept of the interdependent web is not limited to caring for the planet. Our cosmology, our whole understanding about how the spiritual and physical universe works, is based on connections, and on cause and…

Love Remembers (4-21-2019)

I don’t know if the stories about Jesus being alive again happened exactly that way. I believe it’s true that his friends felt his impact, they could feel how he had changed their lives, when they were together after his death. I believe it’s true that he lived on in his friends when they did…

Weaving Hope (4.14.2019)

Some years ago, at an all-ages UU retreat, I was introduced to the spiritual practice of basket weaving. I thought it would be an easy break in between the workshop on Paul’s letters and our hike in the woods. People from age eight to eighty sat around the table with various kinds of ribbon, natural and artificial reeds, and coils of rush…
