Many Spiritual Journeys, One Humanity

Services at 9:15 & 11:00
Recently, Reverend Nica attended the Parliament of World Religions and found that our many different religious journeys had so much in common. Join us to hear stories from diverse spiritual traditions that point us all to our common humanity and the search for a more loving and just world.

Coming to America

Services at 9:15 & 11:00
In his book “A Nation of Immigrants” John F Kennedy described the waves of immigrants that came to America in the first three centuries of our country’s history. They were sturdy and adventurous folk, looking for a better life for their families. But they also suffered from discrimination just as our current immigrants are experiencing. Immigration in the US is fraught with complexity and stories of colonization, courage and perseverance. This morning we will draw from history to provide a new perspective on the current immigration challenges.

Trusting Each Other

Services at 9:15 & 11:00
Our society can lead us to be very suspicious of one another. Yet, our faith calls us to be in Beloved Community with one another. Our Covenant of Good Relations asks us to assume good intentions and lays out a clear way for us to be in community together. Explore with us what it might look like to practice trust in each other and community.

Trusting Life

Services at 9:15 & 11:00
When everything around us is changing so rapidly, how can we let go of our expectations and trust in the flow of life? When things seem chaotic and unfamiliar, do we seek to control or is there a way to surrender to trust. Join us for this exploration on riding the rollercoaster of life.

The Future of Church

ONE SERVICE only that day at 9:15 with a Congregational Meeting at 11 afterward
Unitarian Universalists are theologically progressive, but often considered ecclesiastically conservative. How do we move with the times to co-create relevant, engaging church, to avoid the attendance decline that so many denominations are experiencing? How do we befriend the possibility of change, when change is so hard for many people. These times are unprecedented. Join us to explore new possibilities.

Over the Rainbow

Services at 9:15 & 11:00 

Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the most inspirational, visionary leaders of our modern times. He spoke of a world of possibility in which all are treated with dignity and respect. How do we realize possibilities that at times can seem impossible? Join us to explore whether the possibilities and dreams envisioned by visionary leaders lay somewhere over the rainbow, or they are achievable realities?

Aligning our Habits with our Values

Services at 9:15 & 11:00
After her Community Forum the night before, Amy Halpern-Laff will join Reverend Nica to explore the possibility of aligning our habits with our values. If we are serious about honoring the interdependent web of all existence and stemming climate change, what habits might we consider shifting? Join us to explore how to make the world a little healthier for all.

Finding our Way in the Darkness

Services at 915 & 11:00a
“I have faith in the night” writes the poet Rilke. The darkness has gifts that are sometimes hard to perceive. Many of us are navigating challenging times in our personal lives, our community and the world. As we approach the winter solstice, the darkest time of year, we will explore how to find our way during the darkest times.

The Mysterious Journey of being a Unitarian Universalist

Services at 9:15 & 11:00a

As we welcome new members into our midst, we explore what it means to truly be a Unitarian Universalist. Several longtime UUs will share their stories together with Reverend Nica’s thoughts on the essence of Unitarian Universalism. Join us for this special celebratory service featuring our choir.

Surrendering to the Mystery

Services at 9:15 & 11:00
Mystery is an important part of our spiritual lives. There is so much we cannot and will never know in life. How do we want to interact with the mystery of the unknowable? Do we resist it or can we surrender to it? Join us to explore the mystery.
