Worship Services Online via Zoom

Join us Sundays at 11 am on Zoom

 

We are a Unitarian Universalist community gathered to move our spirits and the world toward love. Worship services are the shared spiritual practice of our community.

 

As we care for our communities and neighbors during this time of COVID-19, our services will continue to happen online via Zoom, an easy-to-use video conferencing site. While we're staying away from one another in person, let's stay connected online. Join us for a time of prayer, music, singing, and a short sermon.

Fall 2020 Schedule:

September 13: Life is the River

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

We explore themes of homecoming and change in a virtual water ceremony service. We explore themes of homecoming and change in a virtual water ceremony service. Send a picture of yourself/your family with some water to Rev. EB. Maybe it’s a glass of water, maybe it’s you watering a plant, or the garden, or in the ocean, or in a river. We’ll use it in a video in worship on Sunday. Please also plan to bring a small bowl of water (and a hand-towel) when you join worship on Sunday. 

September 20: Deep Listening
Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

Listening is so much more than waiting for your turn to talk. On this Sunday, we honor the value of listening deeply to another person.

Grief comes to us all at one time or another. In this collaborative service, we share strategies for living with grief and mourning those who have died.

October 11: The Past Is Present

October 25: Seeking Calm
Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

These are anxious times. On this Sunday, we tell stories and share practices for nurturing calm and presence and coping with anxiety, fear, and uncertainty.

November 1: We Call Our Beloved Dead

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

This is a time of year when many wisdom traditions and cultures honor and remember those who have died. At this service we will remember those in our community who have died in the last year, as well as ritually honor our other beloved dead. Please submit a picture honoring someone who has died: we will show them during the service.

November 8: Now What?

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

At a time of turning and turmoil, we stop to assess where we are and where we can go next in our journey toward love and justice.

 

November 15: History and Heroes

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

To quote Hamilton: "Who lives, who dies, who tells your story." On this Sunday, we seek a right relationship with ancestors: who has been forgotten, who has been unjustly uplifted, whose full story needs to be retold and claimed.

November 22: Cultivating Gratitude

Rev. Elizabeth Bukey

We honor the annual practice of Thanksgiving with a service of gratitude.
