What To Expect At Our Services:
Unitarian Universalists (UUs) are a diverse group of people and this is reflected in our services. We have a large variety of guest speakers as well as Fellowship members that lead services throughout the year.
For information about upcoming services, please check out our events calendar here.
Dress is casual, taking the outdoor temperature into account, and facilities are easily accessible for wheelchairs.
Religious Exploration (Sunday School) is provided for children and youth of all ages. Please contact Kathleen Moscato for more information.
People often arrive prior to services and chat on the patio and have some refreshments. Someone will be at the Welcome Table on the patio to greet visitors and answer questions.
The typical service at our Fellowship is set up similarly to some Protestant services. There are several elements of our service that might differ from a traditional “church service.” We begin our services with the ringing of a bell three times (once for those who have gone before, once for those here today, and once for those who are yet to come) and the lighting of the chalice – the symbol of Unitarian Universalism.
Other elements of our services may include:
- Time For All Ages, a part of the service that is accessible for both children and adults.
- Music Includes performances by our choir, band, and other groups. Contemporary and traditional.
- Meditation and thoughtful reflection.
- Offering – We pass a basket and encourage text-to-give and other alternative ways of giving. First-time visitors should feel free to let the baskets pass them by and enjoy being our guest.
After the service, people gather on the patio to connect and enjoy the last of the refreshments.
