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. Some congregations’ worship is contemporary and high tech. Some congregations’ worship is traditional and formal. Some feature exuberant music, some include long periods of silent reflection. Our congregation’s Sunday morning worship services often include: Words of welcome Lighting a flaming chalice, the symbol of our faith A multi-generational “time for all ages” Music, both instrumental and vocal and in a variety of styles A time for sharing the joys and sorrows of the congregation Both guided and silent meditation Readings—ancient or contemporary A sermon preached by our minister, a guest speaker, or a member of the congregation An offering, collecting financial donations for the congregation and/or for justice work in the community. From time to time, worship services incorporate holiday celebrations, multi-generational plays and pageants, longer musical performances, child dedications, and coming-of-age ceremonies. We offer childcare and learning programs for children and youth during the Sunday service. Our minister is part-time so there are often services led by visiting ministers, congregants, or others with a message that aligns with the UU principals.
