My People?

Rev. Rebekah Savage
Sunday, November 25 — 9:00 a.m. & 11:15 a.m.

We are a community of poeple with a mission to practice courageous love. As we honor "struggle" as a spiritual theme for the month of November, how does Unitarian Universalist culture shape our engagement in the world and with each other? With each admirable quality of living our UU faith comes the shadow side to wrestle with. 
 
Special music by Andy Zatman, piano.
 
Multigenerational Service—All* gather together in the Sanctuary for this service. *Nursery care for infants—3-year-olds is available during the entire service in Building 3, Room 33.

The Bright Light of Hope

Rev. Lynn Strauss
Sunday, December 2 — 9:00 a.m. & 11:15 a.m. | Mitten Tree Sunday & Getting Ready for the Holidays

As we enter the season of dark and winter, we string lights outside and inside our homes. As we tell the story of Hanukkah, let us think about how our own light shines in the darkness.
