A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Lori McGee.
Unitarian Universalism claims at least one miracle, the story of how Universalist John Murray came from England and while his ship was stuck on a sandbar, was convinced to preach the message of Universalism in a local meetinghouse. Two hundred and fifty years later, we will reflect on the truth of Universalism as we celebrate Shared Ministry Sunday and ask, as John Murray did of life, where does our heart call us?

Eleanor Brownn says: “When you take time to replenish your spirit it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.” September’s Soul Matters theme is renewal, which invites us to reflect on the need to care for our bodies and spirits with rest. Together we will reflect on some of the ways we can take time to renew ourselves so that we are strengthened for the journey. During this service, we will also commission and bless our RE teachers as a new year of religious education begins
The UUCK youth group enthusiastically invite ALL people from the congregation to join the every 2nd Wednesday of each month 5:00 – 6:30 in support of Black Lives Matter and to express our commitment to anti-racist work through peaceful protest in front of our church.

They cannot be political or use inappropriate language. Please wear a mask and maintain social distancing. We really hope to see you there!

Who couldn’t benefit from some lightening of the spirit? The spiritual practice of play belongs to all of us, not just human children. What playful activity transports you, brings you joy, provides your spirit with respite and renewal? Let’s celebrate playing for its radical power

The Pat Humphries song “Swimming to the Other Side” reminds us that we are all journeying together and that we are intimately connected with each other. As we return from our summer adventures bringing water and stories to share, this festive service of ingathering and a virtual water communion invites us to bring our lives, our struggles, our hopes and our dreams to this community and join our lives together once again.
A virtual service led by Rev. Christie Anderson, Kathy Kerns, and Vivien Sandlund.
The road to freedom and equality can be long, and the journey can yield both successes and disappointments. Today’s service marks the 100 year anniversary of women gaining the right to vote nationally. We present the exciting story of the women’s suffrage movement, and reflect on the longer women’s journey toward full equality in American society.
Ingathering and Water Communion Our annual ingathering and water communion service will be on Sunday, August 30th at 10 am. Since we can’t be together in person for this service but we still want to blend water as a sign of being together in community, we are going to try something different for sharing water. We have scheduled the following times for you to drop by the church next week to bring some water from your adventures (it could be from the garden hose in your backyard or a local river or…). We’ll take a picture of you with your water and then create a slide show for the service. Be sure to keep some of the water you’ll be sharing so that we can do a water blessing during the service.
Please bring your water to the front church steps on one of the the follow days:
Wednesday, August 19 between 3:30 – 5:30 pm
Thursday, August 20 between 6:00 – 8:00 pm
In the event of rain, our common water bowl will be located just inside the front doors.
