Worship

 

Worship Services are held every Sunday at 11:00AM.  We believe that worship is the center of spiritual life,  both for individuals and communities. At First Unitarian, worship seeks to express and explore the whole range of human experience. While services usually include familiar elements such as sermons, performed music and hymns, the content of sermons varies from atheism to Christianity, politics to literature, poetry to prose. Services are followed with coffee and tea during our fellowship hour.  

 

Generally, our children attend the first 20 minutes of the worship service, which has elements that are designed to be engaging to younger congregants.  After the Wisdom story, children attend their religious education classes, a monthly children's chapel or an all-ages justice Sunday.  There are multi-generational worship services throughout the year.  High school youth remain in worship and meet in their groups at 12:15PM.

 

If you are visiting us for the first time please see our newcomer's page for useful information. 

 

Summer services from mid-June through Labor Day weekend are held in the McKinney Chapel (next to the main buildng on Pierrepont street), and led by members of our congregation.  Proposals for summer services are generally reviewed by the Worship Committee in the Spring.  Applications will  be posted on this page.

They describe so crisply one of the problems in ethics that people have wrestled with throughout the ages: what is the right |...|

I love computer programmer Derek Sivers’ idea for hacking the consumer system. He writes, “I’d like to get 100 parrots and teach them to say, “It won’t make you happy!” – then let them loose in shopping malls, big electronics stores, and car lots. Then, when people are considering spending thousands of dollars on |...|
