Upcoming Services

Sunday services are at 10:30am

March 30 Holy Fools/Holy Humor
Service Leader: Joanne Tunnicliffe
Music: TBA

On the day before April Fool’s Day, our sermon focuses on the role of humor in our spiritual lives and practice. Fools were court jesters who used their entertaining patter to speak truth to power and dispense common sense, insight, and advice. Jokes and stories, while evoking a laugh, can also reveal truths that might be too painful to hear in any other form. Today we explore the myriad uses of humor and its role in a life of Unitarian Universalist faith

April 6 Learning to Live Without Gods
Val Ramsey
Service Leader: Rev. Victoria
Music: Susan Gudgeon’s Voice Students

Val Ramsey made the highest bid for a sermon at November’s Fall Festival. Today, she presents her thoughts on the changes she’s observed in her family’s fortunes and affiliations over many generations. Val has lived an action-packed life, and you’ll want to hear her stories!

April 13 The Cross and the Resurrection: UUs and Jesus
Rev. Victoria
Service Leader: TBA
Music: Paul Hawkins

This Palm Sunday, we’ll consider the sometimes conflicted relationship Unitarian Universalists have with Jesus of Nazareth. What parts of his story do we embrace? What do we believe and what do we doubt? And, what about those “miracles?”

April 20 Easter: For the Beauty of the Earth
Rev. Victoria
Service Leader: Mary Ellen Scanlon
Music: Choir

Easter and Earth Day – what a better time to celebrate the resurgence of energy and life that is SPRING! Today we honor the Earth that is our home, that sustains us and nurtures us, and teaches us about regeneration, being alive, and hopefulness.

April 27 Crazy for Mental Health
Denise Davy
Service Leader: Joanne Dear
Music: Youth Choir with Cindy Carey

While we're hearing more about the topic of mental health these days, we're still miles away from openly talking about it the same way we do with physical health issues. Denise Davy will share what she's learned on how we can all be more open to these discussions.
