Awake, Arise, and Rejoice!

Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021 at 10 AM

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman, DRE Colleen Thoele, and Worship Associate Randy Bish.

Spring is a time of many religious holidays with celebrations that invite us to reflect on life’s power to renew itself. With songs, stories, and readings we will tell stories of Easter, a story of life overcoming death; Passover, the story of a people who arose and journeyed to freedom, and Spring, which invites us to rejoice as the earth awakens itself once again. As part of our celebration, we will have a virtual Easter bonnet parade.

Join us Sunday, April 4, 2021 10 AM for this virtual service hosted via Zoom Video Conferencing. The link to join the worship service is below. We request that everyone joining the service please display your first and last name.  Thank you!

UUCK Children and Youth Making a Difference

On Saturday March 6th, we held a special Zoom gathering with Dr. Hayes-Nelson, Director of the Portage County NAACP. During our time together, Dr. Nelson shared with our kids the work the NAACP does in our community. The children shared why they chose the NAACP as the recipient of the January special collection and were excited to officially announce the amount they raised. In an exciting turn of events, the children were told just how their donation will impact the community!

The Fire of Commitment

Sunday, March 14, 2021 at 10 AM

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Heidi Emhoff Wood.

The song in our teal hymnal “The Fire of Commitment” says that our future begins when we have “deep assurance of the flame that burns within”.  With readings and songs we will explore the fire of commitment as a beacon of light and hope guiding us on our journey, as a song that inspires us to be brave and continue the struggle for freedom, and as a symbol that challenges us to do the work of justice.

Where Do We Come From? Where Are We Going?

Sunday, March 7, 2021 at 10:00 AM

A virtual service led the Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Kathy Kerns.

As we begin our annual pledge campaign with its theme of “Imagine the places we’ll go”, we’ll take time to look at where we’ve come from and where we imagine ourselves going in the next year.  We’ll celebrate what we’ve achieved in the past year, reflect on the dreams we’ve shared for our future, and answer the invitation to share our gifts, our money, and our time so that we can continue our journey into a future we’ll create together.
