Come Out, Come In

Sunday, October 10, 2021 at 10 AM.

A virtual service led by the Welcoming Congregation Renewal Team.

LGBTQIA+ people have long been excluded, from the wider society, from churches, and from families.  October 11th of each year is National Coming Out Day, an opportunity to raise awareness for individuals who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community .  As we honor Coming Out Day, we will renew our call to be a welcoming congregation, a place where LGBTQIA+ people are not merely tolerated but are called in and embraced and celebrated for who they are.

Among the Wild Things

Sunday, October 3, 2021 at 10 AM.

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Rev. Christie Anderson.

We live among wild animals every day.  They’re all around us every day if we just stop and notice them!  In honor of World Animal Day and the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and ecology, we will appreciate the animals we share our planet with, reflect on our Seventh Principle, and celebrate our beloved animal companions who share life’s journey with us with a Blessing of the Animals.

A drive through animal blessing will also be available at the church from 12 pm to 1 pm this Sunday.  You can bring your pet(s) or a picture of them for a brief blessing and treat.

A Vision of Ministry Clear

Sunday, September 26, 2021 at 10 AM.

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman.

In the hymn “Wake Now My Senses” we sing of “having a vision of ministry clear”. As we prepare to begin a new chapter of UUCK’s story, we have ideas about our future, but do we have a clear vision of what we will do together? As we celebrate our annual Shared Ministries Sunday, we will reflect on how we are called to serve each other and the world. We will also commission Rev. Christie Anderson as an Affiliated Community Minister of UUCK.

Not a Clue and . . .

Sunday, September 19, 2021 at 10 AM.

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Elaine Bowen.

How have you coped with the pandemic?  Has your answer to the questions of what to do or how to manage life sometimes been “not a clue”?  Together we will reflect on the last eighteen months as (at the suggestion of a congregation member for a sermon) I share with you some of my joys, struggles, and ways I’ve sustained myself and draw on our faith as a source of strength and hope in the uncertain days to come.

A Never Ending Story

Sunday, September 12, 2021 at 10 AM.

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Director of Religious Education Colleen Thoele.

“Reach the stars, fly a fantasy, dream a dream, and what you see will be”. As we
celebrate ingathering, bless backpacks, and begin our Fall Religious Education program,
the title song from “A Never Ending Story” invites all of us to share our creativity and
adventurous spirits to create our unique story together. Weather permitting, we will have
an in-person service outdoors on the church campus plus the option to attend via Zoom.
