This Sunday 

Winter Solstice Celebration:A Celebration of Darkness and Light in Songs and Stories 

Organizers: Jana Peirce, Laurie Walton, Susan Grace, and Stephanie Sandberg and the UUFF Choir

Intergenerational Service. Drawing on Native American myth and pagan ritual, this non-traditional service begins in darkness with drumming and chanting and ends with the return of light as we weave together music and story to call down the sun. This is an intergenerational program, meaning that children of all ages are invited to stay for the entire service, which has been designed to appeal to all ages. Please join us as we get ready to mark the passing of the winter solstice not intellectually or stoically, but joyously and experientially.

Chanukah and Religious Freedom 

Worship Leader:  Rev. Sarah Schurr  Lay Leader: Marilyn Richardson

Rev. Sarah will speak on this ancient festival and how it relates to our lives today. Chanukah is a celebration of the Jewish people standing for the right to worship as they choose.  Religious freedom is a key issue for many Unitarian Universalists and for so many people around the world.

Parenting as a Spiritual Practice 

Worship Leader:  Rev. Sarah Schurr  Lay Leader: Daniel Swisher

There is nothing like parenting to teach us important life lessons like patience and forgiveness. Rev. Sarah will reflect with us on lessons that parenting, and supporting parents, can bring us in our own spiritual development.

Be Who You Are 

Lay Leader: Laurie Walton

This sermon honoring the late Rev. Forrest Church explains how Unitarian Universalism can help us understand how to be who we are, want what we have, and do what we can.


Gratitude Communion 

Lay leader:  Michael Bonilla

This service is an opportunity to share the gratitude we feel to be a part of such a wonderful spiritual community. Potluck will follow the service.
