Sunday Services

Important: We are moving to our summer hours starting July 3rd. Sunday Services will be at 10 AM for both in-person and virtual services. Our Mask mandate and all other usual pandemic protocols remain in place. 

July Ministry Theme: No theme this month.

July 3: “Kids: Embraced by the Interdependent Web.”

Kids in dirt. Kids in piles of autumn leaves. Kids in drifts of snow. Kids examiing bugs and looking at the stars. Kids happily hugging and being hugged by what Unitarian Universalists call “the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” Kids living this, our  Seventh Principle. Hear two members of the UUS:E family reflect on being a kid–decades ago–and on connecting with the natural world.

Coordinators: Sande Hartdagen and Marsha Howland

July 10: “Compassion & Choices: This is YOUR Life.”

Our first principle, the inherent worth and dignity of every person, extends from birth to that moment when our lives come to an end. Join us as we explore what it means to die with dignity with Tim Appleton from Compassion & Choices. This non-profit organization “envision[s] a society that affirms life and accepts the inevitability of death, embraces expanded options for compassionate dying, and empowers everyone to choose end-of-life care that reflects their values, priorities, and beliefs.

Coordinators: Sandy Karosi and Stacey Musulin

July 17: “Women in a Single Garment of Destiny.”

A recorded service in which UUA President Susan Frederick-Gray brings us a homily that talks about our connection through covenant. In story and song, this service brings us together in UU fellowship and commitment to our shared ideals. There will be “live” portions of the service in our sanctuary and through Zoom.

Coordinator: Sheila Foran

July 24: “God’s Quiet Things.”

All-Congregational Worship! Rev. Josh Pawelek will offer some theological riffing in response to one of his favorite children’s books, God’s Quiet Things, from the writer Nancy Sweetland.

Coordinator: Rev. Josh Pawelek

July 31: “How to Have a Spiritual Staycation.”

A week or two away at a special place (seashore, mountains, lakeside, the family homestead, a world-famous landmark) can relax and re-energize us physically and, most important, spiritually. But what if we can’t take a go-somewhere vacation and need that spiritual renewal? How can we transform our “same old place” to meet that need? Hear some ideas about how to do just that–anytime of year.

Coordinators:  Marsha Howland and David Klotz
