Upcoming Special Events

  • "The Source of Renewal" – Rev. Stehpan Papa



    In this Homecoming service we will conduct our annual Water Communion in which you can bring water to pour (or touch the water that is already there), say where it is from, and what it means to you as we gather together to honor our connection to the earth and to one another.  Stephan will talk about the value of water and the sources that sustain our lives.  Sue Edelstein and Bill Spence will share some photos of their experience of renewal at our Unitarian Universalist General Assembly.  Music provided by Jimmy Byrne in this service for all ages.

    Please remember to save a bit of water  from special places you visited during your summer travels, and bring it to the service.
