A big day for us: three events in the same place, one after another.

UUA logoIt begins at 9:30am when Rev. Melissa Mummert continues the “Sunday School” presentation she began in November about the origins and history of Unitarian Universalism. Intriguing and entertaining! If you've ever had questions about what UU is and where it came from, this is a great way to get the answers.


For the 11:00am service, Melissa shares thoughts about transformation - especially regarding gender.

Many (most?) of us go through our entire lives thinking of gender as a fixed point, as one aspect of ourselves that cannot change. But is that really true? And if it's not true, what are the far-reaching implications?


The Souper BowlImmediately after the service. we'll have a fundraiser pot-luck meal we're calling "The Souper Bowl" (with a nod toward the next Sunday's football game). The idea is to share a simple meal together at which we make contributions toward helping the underfed and underhoused in our community.

Watch this space (and listen for Announcements in the service) for more details. 


Feb 4: Rev. Melissa Mummert

MelissaMummertOur theme for February is “LOVE” ...

... and Rev. Melissa Mummert starts it off with a talk is called "The Alchemy of Relationship." An intriguing title for what promises to be an unforgettable service!

Covenant Groups

Covenant Groups

Covenant groups are groups of six-to-eight people who meet every two weeks to form deeper personal connections and share stories on topics of faith, core values, and universal life experiences.This form of small group ministry is an excellent way to:

- experience lived UU values and perspectives
- make a personal connection with a few members of the larger congregation
- explore your own spiritual journey in a social setting

Maybe you'd like to join one! To try one out, please contact Rev. Melissa Mummert (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Gabriele Weinberger (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
