What to Expect

What to Expect

Each service contains instrumental and vocal music, a 15- to 20-minute message, an opportunity to express joys and sorrows, an offering, a story relating to the message, and a period of meditation or prayer. The Sunday service begins at 9:00 a.m. and lasts 60 minutes, followed by a period where people may respond to the message of the day.  

 

Each service begins with the lighting of our flaming chalice, a distinctive symbol of UU.

The design originated during WWII as a symbol on documents given to refugees who fled without their identification papers.

 

NOTE: Participation via Zoom is provided, in-person attendance is a richer experience.  Please follow your own counsel on this.

Upcoming Services

July Theme: Beginnings and Endings

 

July 7, 9:00 am    Birthing a Nation 

Rev. Cynthia Snavely 

July 4 marks the American colonies declaration of their independence from Britain.  But fighting for independence was but one step in becoming a nation.  There was much hard work to do to turn separate colonies into a nation.

July 14, 9:00 am  Facing Death

Rev. Cynthia Snavely 

 

We must faith death in two ways.  We must face death as we lose others to it, and we must acknowledge that we will die ourselves.  Facing both is necessary if we are to live our lives fully.

July 21, 9:00 am  Open

July 28, 9:00 am  Farewell  

Rev. Cynthia Snavely 

On my last Sunday with you, I share what I have learned in my time with you and wish you well in the next phase of your ministry.

Service Inspirations

Service Inspirations

Our worship services focus on a wide variety of religious, philosophical, personal, and social issues. Although each service is different, we gather weekly to consider, individually and collectively, that which we hold of highest worth. For some, it’s the community; for others, it’s the natural world; and for still for others, it’s a sense of some sort of something  beyond our imagination.

 

Our inspiration comes from a variety of sources: the wisdom of world religions, teachings from humanist and earth-centered traditions, words and deeds of prophetic people, and the direct experience of individuals.  


Our principal service is on Sundays at 9:00 a.m., at Tri-County Unitarian Universalists Center and also on zoom. Please see the Home page for details and links.

Where we’re located and how to get there.
