Upcoming Sermons & Services

SUMMER SERVICES HAVE BEGUN: ONE SERVICE AT 10:00 A.M.

July Worship Theme - Honor

Transmogrified

Rev. Kimberley Debus, Guest Preacher
Sunday, July 21 — 10:00 a.m.

Sometimes, when our ideas, beliefs, and perspectives seem stuck, it’s helpful to take them apart, mix them up, and see what comes out. Let’s see what happens when we do this with our principles.
 
Rev. Kimberley Debus works as a community minister based in New York’s Capital Region, inspiring an artful and art-filled faith. She consults with congregations and religious professionals, and provides sabbatical ministry support throughout the denomination. Kimberly also hosts a podcast called The Worship Whisperer. She has previously served congregations on the North Fork of Long Island and Key West.
 
Special music by Greg Yoder, voice, with Wayne Crump, guitar, and Justin Furnia, piano.
 
Summer RE—Children rising to K-6th grade will gather in Room 52 for "Summer Prayground". Youth rising to 7th-12th grade will attend worship in the Sanctuary. Nursery care for infants–3-year-olds is available during the entire service in Room 53 this week.

Universal Values and Atheism

Dominic Russoli, UUCR Member
Sunday, July 28 — 10:00 a.m.

The world is a marvelously diverse placebut there are universal values and shared moralities that transcend countries, cultures, religions, or God. UUCR member Dominic Russoli will share his insights as a world traveler and invite you to explore atheism on your own.
 
Dominic spent twenty-two years in the active military as part of an aircrew, and traveled to over 120 countries. His time touring the world has given him insight into universal truths and shared values that are found in many countries and cultures. He'll discuss how these observations lead him to atheism.
 
Special music by Andy Zatman and Marilyn Briant on piano.
 
Summer RE—Children rising to K-6th grade will gather in Room 52 for "Summer Prayground". Youth rising to 7th-12th grade will attend worship in the Sanctuary. Nursery care for infants–3-year-olds is available during the entire service in Building 3, Room 33.
