On May 27, 1866, 19 men and women officially founded the First Universalist Church of Kent and affixed their names to a constitution of their creation. Their creation has been shaped and molded by the ones who followed them and now by us, but the core of it remains and continues to be a blessing for so many people. This morning we lift up our gratitude for the ones who came before as we celebrate our 150th anniversary.
Services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM. Nursery Care is available for all services.

“And still, after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, “You owe me.” Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky.”- (Rumi). Come and explore this concept of, “How to be a Blessing.” You can choose to live a meaningful life; one that’ll make the world move forward, touching the lives of others in a positive way. Being a blessing to others can lift you up. When you are lifted up you lift up others as well!
Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 am. Nursery card is available for all services.

John O’Donohue also says that “Whenever you give a blessing, a blessing returns to enfold you.” For some, the act of receiving a blessing is harder than giving one. How can we open ourselves more fully to receive the blessings that come to us?

In his book To Bless the Space Between Us, John O’Donohue suggests that blessing “is a way of life, a lens through which the whole world is transformed.” We will start our reflection upon the meaning of blessing by considering what it takes to prepare. How can we give blessings?
