Secrets and Elephants — Sunday, July 8, 2018

Led by Rev. Dave Clements and Worship Associate Carolyn Schlemmer

Secrets can be defined as those experiences, thoughts, sometimes feelings that we choose to keep from view or to talk about. There are some secrets that are by their very nature contain information whose authorized disclosure could endanger lives or security. But then there are those secrets that become “elephants in the room.” These can be questions, problems, solutions or issues that many people if not all know about but choose to ignore because to do otherwise could cause embarrassment, sadness or even trigger an argument. What happens when secrets become elephants in the room?

Sunday service is offered at 10 AM with nursery care available for preschool age and younger.

Blessings in the Park (AT CHURCH) – Sunday, June 10, 2018

One service at 10 AM with Pet Blessings

Led by Lori Fatchet-McGee and Worship Associate Lisa Thiel

UPDATE: Due to rain, this service has been moved to the church building – NOT at Plum Creek Park. Please bring a picture of your pet for the blessing, rather than your actual pet.

On this Sunday, we’ll gather together for our annual service in the park and church picnic as we look  at how pets bless our lives and other blessings around us.

Our annual Church Picnic will immediately follow our worship service and pet blessings. 

Plan to bring the following:

  • Something to sit on – folding chairs or a blanket
  • A dish to share
  • Place settings for you and your family (plates, silverware, napkins, and cups)
  • Beverages (the Church will supply ice water)
  • Bring any games you might like to invite others to play.

For directions to Plum Creek Park, visit www.tinyurl.com/plumcreekpark

Introducing our new settled Minister. . . the Rev. Steven Protzman!

Called by a unanimous vote by the Active Members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Kent on May 27, 2018, the Rev. Steven Protzman will begin his ministry with us on August 1, 2018.

The Reverend Steven Protzman

is a native Midwesterner and grew up in Missouri and Iowa.  He holds an undergraduate degree in architecture from Iowa State University and his previous career was as a pipe organ designer for several major American organ builders.  He is a 2009 graduate of United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities, New Brighton, Minnesota and was ordained in 2010 at the First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis.  Steven has served the Unitarian Universalist Society, Coralville, Iowa (previously the Unitarian Universalist Society of Iowa City, Iowa) since 2011 as its settled minister.

Steven is an outgoing extrovert who loves to socialize and meet new people.  He is also passionate about nature, especially wolves, eagles and the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon, is an avid country western dancer, and  enjoys gardening, the arts, hockey, good food of all kinds, architecture, and exploring new places.  While in Iowa, he rediscovered the rugged beauty of southern Missouri and northern Arkansas and vacationed down there for several years, exploring caves, rivers, forests, springs and the natural beauty of that part of the country.

Steven believes in the power of Unitarian Universalism to transform people’s lives, to invite us to discover our fullest, most authentic selves, to guide us into deeper relationship with the Holy, and to challenge us to offer our lives in service to a world that needs the love and the gifts each of us has to share.

Life Calls Us On — Sunday, May 27, 2018

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman with Worship Associate Rev. Christie Anderson

In the hymn “Life Calls Us On”, written by Rev. Kendyl Gibbons and Rev. Jason Shelton, the fourth verse says:  “And the Spirit’s gracious power dreams of good that yet shall be.”  After a week together of getting to know each other and dreaming and talking about possibilities for our shared ministry, we will reflect on our time together and who life calls us to be together in the years to come.

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