Most Sunday mornings start before 11:00 am with coffee and conversation, so don’t be afraid to arrive early.
We gather in worship to find meaning and live more deeply. Worship creates connections within, among, and beyond us, calling us to our better selves, calling us to live with wisdom and compassion.
Unitarian Universalist worship styles vary by congregation, and even within congregations. Our congregation’s Sunday morning gathers range from inspirational to informational.
Elements of a typical Unitarian Universalist Sunday morning gathering often, but not always, include:
- Words of welcome
- Lighting a flaming chalice, the symbol of our faith
- A multi-generational segment, such as a “story for all ages”
- Music, both instrumental and vocal and in a variety of styles
- A time for lifting up the joys and concerns of the congregation
- A meditation or prayer
- Readings—ancient or contemporary
- A morning message given by a service leader, a guest speaker, or a member of the congregation
- An offering, collecting financial donations for the congregation or for justice work in the community.
