A multi-platform service led by Worship Associates Randy Bish and Heidi Shaffer Bish and Commissioned Lay Minister Kathy Kerns.
This special service will be held in Plum Creek Park in shelter #1 on Sunday, August 21 starting at 11AM. There is a Zoom option but given the interactive nature of the service and planned social activities everyone is encouraged to attend in person, if able.
Unitarian Universalists recognize the interconnected web of all existence of which we are a part. Today we acknowledge and celebrate our connections to the natural world and to each other. We begin with a short service in which we consider our connections to the natural world. We will then have a shared community meal and many social activities as we renew our connections with one another.
Join us for Sunday Service at 11:00 AM either in person (meeting at Plum Creek Park) or via Zoom. (Our Zoom meeting opens at 15 minutes before the service for weekly announcements). The link to join the worship service is below. We request that everyone joining the service on Zoom to please display your first and last name.

Saturday: UUCK Leadership Leadership as Soulful Imagining and Community Healing Saturday, August 13th from 1:00 – 3:00 PM
The pandemic has been especially hard for the leaders in our UU communities. Folks are burned out, church members are overwhelmed, and we really aren’t sure what is going to happen next. So what do we do? This program will allow you to explore the possible in your own leadership and the leadership needs of the community. There will be some time for self and community care before we get to the question of: what’s next? Rev. Sunshine will stay after 3:00 PM to meet with individual committees or groups who would like some support in their work (see note below).
All participants are asked to read and watch the following before this session:
Leaders, we encourage in person participation but if that is not possible for you, please join us via Zoom.

Sunday: UUCK Congregation (Members, Friends, and Newcomers) After the Flood: A Workship for Our Times Sunday, August 14 at 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
As we relearn how to be in community in a time of extended pandemic, the question becomes- what do we do next? This workship (cross between a worship and workshop) will provide time to consider how we choose to be in relationship and what it means to imagine the possible. A mixture of lament and joy built through presentation and play will allow us to do some deep and meaningful soul care for this community and ourselves. All attendees are encouraged (but not required) to read “A Garden Story” and “Garden Story Part 2: The LAP” by Shannon Harper before the workship. There will be a time of transition at 11am for those who need to leave. The full workship will end at 12pm.
Update: UUCK Members and Friends who were not able to participate, this workshop was recorded. If you wish to view the session, please contact MaryBeth at [email protected] for the podcast link.
A multi-platform service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Kathy Kerns.
Our Second Source of spiritual wisdom is “the words and deeds of prophetic people which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil”. What does evil mean? Where does it come from? Why don’t we talk about evil very much? Drawing on the writings of various UU theologians, we will explore the concept of evil and ask how Unitarian Universalism empowers us to confront and challenge evil in ourselves and our world.
