Upcoming Services

We would love to have you join us for our online Sunday service at 10:00. Connection details are under the "Worship" tab.

April 4:  Easter Sunday

This Sunday’s service will combine traditional Easter music with a contemporary message about how we can experience renewal even in the face of how a pandemic distorts our lives; how hope, faith, and community guide us forward through desperate challenges. Rev. Kelsch’s sermon title  - How We Carry the Flame  -  is inspired by a song recently written by UU Minister Dan Schatz. Live music will be provided by organist Mark Slawson, mezzo-soprano Susannah Thornton, and trumpeter Elizabeth Hanlon. Thanks to creative, hard work by our technical crew, we will also be able to see Rev. Schatz performing his song on video.

April 11:  Pledge Drive Sunday

As we turn our attention to planning for next year,  our sermon will focus on a key aspect of our church community life: Relationship. This sermon will explore the nature and depth of relationship experienced in a faith community, considering the rewards of committed relationship to spiritual seeking in community and what the best meaning of “church” can be.

April 18: For the Beauty of the Earth - Part One

There are so many ways to access and appreciate the beauty of the world in which we live. For the Beauty of the Earth: Part One will explore some of the many ways we do so in the first of a two-part opportunity to reflect on all that Nature has to offer to us. 


April 25: For the Beauty of the Earth - Part Two 

This lay service, led by John Belknap, offers an opportunity for everyone to share something that speaks to their individual ways of appreciating Nature. It may be identification of an inspiring location in Nature, or the reading of a poem or passage about Nature, or a memory of a time in Nature.
