Blue Christmas – Tonight, December 12 at 7 PM

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Camille Fauser, Worship Associate

For some of us, this season is difficult.  It may be a painful reminder of loved ones who are no longer present to celebrate the holidays, there may be other losses or struggles we are facing, or the long dark nights may be a challenge.  “Blue Christmas” will be a meditative service that will provide a space for grief and loss, for reflection and remembering, and for honoring the many different feelings we have this time of year.

Let There Be Light!

Sunday, December 9,  2018

Led by Katie Grigg and Eric van Baars, Worship Associate 

It’s the darkest time of year, and there seems to be so much despair, fear and darkness in the world.  Let’s find out how to let in the light!  Light holds great cultural and sacred significance in many of the world’s major religions,especially in the holiday season.  We’ll pay homage to traditions and welcome new ways to usher light into the dark corners of our mind, and our world.

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

The Mystic Lights

Sunday, December 2, 2018

Rev.Steven Protzman with Worship Associate Lori McGee

In her poem “The Feast of Lights” Emma Lazarus speaks of the mystic lights as she tells the story of Hanukkah, the story of a military victory and the miracle of a sacred lamp that burned for eight days even though there was only enough oil for one day.  As we tell this story, we celebrate the light burning in the human heart, a light that brings hope and possibility even in times of darkness and despair. 

Sunday services are offered at 9:45 ans 11:30 AM with nursery care for  Pre-school age and younger available during both services.

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Carolyn Schelemmer

Kermit the Frog says: Yeah, well, I’ve got a dream too. It’s about singing and dancing and making people happy. That’s the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with.” In honor of our Treats and Talents auction with its theme of “The Lovers, the Dreamers, and UUs ” this year, this service will be a romp through Muppet theology about rainbows, lovers, dreamers, life, and Unitarian Universalism.

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

Now More than Ever

Sunday, November 11, 2018

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman with Worship Associate Kathy Kerns

No matter how the election turns out, our country will still be a people divided by class, by race, by politics, by the idolatry of nationalism, by an “us versus them” mentality. In this post-election service, we will affirm that now more than ever our Unitarian Universalist message of love and hope, of inclusivity and diversity is needed to heal ourselves, our democracy and our world.

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

Tension or Temper

Sunday, November 3, 2018

Led by Cal Frye

What is the purpose of the church? Is our task to heal ourselves, or society? How do we balance our desire for social justice with our need for the social hour between first and second service? And can we find the balance while still maintaining harmony and compassion within these walls? Courage, my friends! In the tension is our strength.

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