A Song in My Heart / Voices that Transform

(Also this morning: Spaghetti Fundraiser by UUYJ and Town Hall Meeting)

9:15 AM: A Song in My Heart

An in-person all-ages service led by Director of Religious Exploration Colleen Thoele. Transitional Music Director Emily Hall, and Affiliated Community Minister Renée Ruchotzke with a reflection by Mike Hovancsek.

Music holds the power to soothe, uplift and transform us. Our grief, celebrations, and rest often include a soundtrack. How has music transformed you?

10:00 AM Lifespan Religious Exploration

Religious exploration for our children and youth in classrooms.

Facilitated small reflection groups for adults in Hobbs Hall using our wondering questions:

  • What kind of music do you like to dance/move to? How does it make you feel when you dance/move?
  • Imagine there is a bio-pic (movie) about your life and how you have grown and changed. What would be the theme song during the opening credits? The closing credits? How might they reveal a story of transformation?

10:00 – 11:15 AM Community Café

Our social hour in Hobbs Hall is open to all. Connect with others, learn about the church, find out about programs and other opportunities to connect.

11:00 AM: Voices that Transform

A multi-platform service (both in-person and on Zoom) led by Transitional Music Director Emily Hall and Commissioned Lay Minister Kathy Kerns.

Music is a powerful source of spiritual transformation.  It can connect us to each other, help us to understand and appreciate what can sometimes feel hard to grasp in words alone, and be a source of inspiration to us as we try to bring about beloved community.  This service explores this theme through singing hymns and learning the story behind the song.
