Worship Services

November 26
Service: "What About the Sabbath?" 10:00 am

Rev. Margaret L. Beard. Few if any of us observe a Sabbath. What ever happened to taking a day of rest and how might we reclaim one? What if that day could be framed as a "day of resistance"? What might this new kind of sabbath do for us and our surrounding community? Reverend Beard retired in 2016 after 22 years serving Unitarian Universalism, first at UUA, developing print, web and, training resources for new and growing congregations, and later as a parish minister in congregations in Georgia, North Carolina and Florida.

December 3
Service: Wait Here 9:30 & 11:00

Rev. Khleber Van Zandt. Pearl Harbor Day, Advent. UU author John Taylor writes, “If there were no Advent, we would need to invent one.” Even as we honor this season of darkness, we light candles of hope and begin the long wait for the return of the light.

December 10
Service: All Holidays Matter 9:30 & 11:00

Rev. Khleber Van Zandt. As UUs who recognize each person’s inherent worth and dignity, we attempt to pay homage to religious and wisdom traditions of all sorts, including their holidays. In that case, what’s so wrong with wishing one another a zesty “Happy Holidays”?

Service: Winter Solstice 9:30 & 11:00

Stephanie Zoernack

December 24
Service: Giving In To Christmas 10:00

Rev. Khleber Van Zandt. In the midst of such a hectic season, it can be difficult to remember any reason to celebrate. Let’s gather on a quiet Sunday morning, adjust our exorbitant expectations, and allow the joy of Christmas into our hearts.
