The Promise of Peace

Sunday, April 28, 2019

Led by Music Director Hal Walker and Worship Associate Rev. Christie Anderson

In our annual Music Sunday, we will explore a variety of expressions of Peace through music. Music Director Hal Walker, worship associate Christie Anderson, the UU church of Kent Peace Choir, the Fallow Time Folk orchestra and the Tone Chimers will lead the congregation in a Sunday morning celebration of the musical pulse that is so prominent in our community and our world.  The tone chimers will debut a large work for handbells and solo violin called “Peace in our Time” by Cathy Moklebust which includes three movements, with each movement based on a quote by Mother Teresa, Mohandas Gandhi, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM with nursery care available during both services.

The Promise of Easter

Sunday, April 21, 2019

Rev. Steven Protzman and Director of Religious Education Colleen Thoele with Worship Associate Eric van Baars

The hymn “A Promise through the Ages Rings” says that: “a green shoot always, always springs, and something always, always sings”, affirming life’s resilience and ability to renew itself. On this Easter Sunday, we will gather as a community of all ages to welcome new members, to sing and rejoice together as we hear Easter’s message of hope and possibility, and to celebrate Earth Day.

Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM with nursery care available during both services.

The Way of the Heart

Led by Lisa Thiel and Worship Associate Cal Frye

Descartes may have done humanity a disservice with his axiom, ‘I think therefore I am,’ keeping us all in our heads. Today we will explore living from the heart as an essential part of the path toward wholeness.

Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM with nursery care available during both services.

A People Who Choose

Sunday, April 7, 2019

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Kathy Kerns

Unitarian Universalists are proud to be labeled heretics (from the Greek word hairesis, which means “to choose”).  We are a people who choose- we choose what we believe, knowing that truth and meaning are not fixed or final, but that new understanding and new revelation is always possible.  In this Auction service purchased by Carol Gould, we will explore what it means to be a people who choose.  

Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM with nursery care available during both services.
