A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Rev. Cynthia Landrum.
In his poem “Silenced Cries” James Coburn writes about the 1921 Tulsa Massacre and the racially motivated destruction of the Greenwood area, known as “Black Wall Street”. He says ” What do I know but clouds of smoke once rose where memory presses green land.” On this, the 100th anniversary of the massacre, we will tell the rarely heard story of this event and reflect on the work we are called to do to end racism in our country.

The legend of the simurgh comes from Iranian mythology and is a story about the search for truth and self understanding. As we reflect on our year’s ministry together and celebrate our accomplishments, what are the stories we tell ourselves that prevent us from living fully into our vision and our mission? What stories do we want to tell about our future? This service will be followed by our annual congregational meeting.
A virtual service led by Director of Religious Education Colleen Thoele with the Children and Youth of our congregation.
Each spring we gather to celebrate the journey of our children and youth through the religious education program. Join us and share in the stories and songs of our young UUs. Led by DRE Colleen Thoele and the children and youth of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Kent, this service will also be an opportunity to congratulate and honor our graduating seniors.

What if the flowers rebelled? Join us as we tell the story of what happened the day the flowers refused to bloom and no one- bees, humans, hummingbirds, other animals and plants, even the summer wind- was quite sure what to do. Our time together will also include the flower ceremony, a uniquely Unitarian Universalist ritual created by Rev. Norbert Capek in Czechoslovakia in 1923, during which we will share flowers virtually.
