UUS:E Virtual Sunday Services

Dear Unitarian Universalist Society: East Members and Friends:

We warmly invite you to join us for Virtual Worship Services, Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM

“Arriving on These Shores of HOPE: Thoughts on the New Normal.” Sunday, June 20th, 10:00 AM

We cannot go back to the old normal!” This has been a mantra for many during the pandemic. Now, as states and businesses and congregations begin to reopen, we contemplate what, exactly, is different. Is there a new normal, and does it meet the demands of our historical moment? Coordinator: Rev. Josh Pawelek

Note: This morning we welcome the members and friends of the Universalist Church of West Hartford. (We will join them for a Sunday service in August.)

How to join us on Sunday Mornings

First: If you would like to join by video on any device, login information for our Virtual Sunday Services appears in our congregational eblast on Wednesday mornings and Saturday afternoons. To add your email address to our list, please contact the UUS:E office at (860) 646-5151 during regular business hours.

If you haven’t used Zoom before see below for more information.

However, your device must be properly enabled. If you have not used Zoom video conferencing before, go to https://zoom.us/support/download. Downloading Zoom is free and quick. I recommend that you do the download as soon as possible to make sure you are all set for 10:00 am.

Second: You can also join the virtual service by phone. Call in at the number included in the eblast a few minutes before 10:00 AM. You will be prompted to provide the supplied Meeting ID. You may be prompted then to provide a participant ID. If so, ignore that prompt and just hit # again. Please mute your phone during the service and during songs.

Tip: If you cannot hear well using your computer or tablet sound, join by Zoom, mute your mic, and then call in to listen.

Third: We will be passing a virtual Sunday Service Collection basket. Unspecified donations are split 50/50 with our monthly Community Outreach Ministry and UUS:E’s operating cost fund.

I cannot attend at 10 AM, can I still view the service?

You can participate in services after Sunday morning in several ways:
