From the Minister – June 2024

June’s spiritual theme is Renewal. I’ve been thinking of this as a way for you to renew your relationships with each other and with the congregation as a whole. There will be some initiatives rolling out over the summer and into the fall that will be asking you to commit to the work of making this congregation the best it can be. May your yeses be enthusiastic and many!

From the Minister – April 2024

The spiritual theme we’ll be reflecting on for April is Interdependence. A proposed new value in our bylaws invites us into deeper relationships with each other, the world, and That Which is Greater than We are (the sacred) by reminding us not only of what’s important to us but also by asking us to keep our relationships central to our practices. This includes holding one another accountable as we all strive to live into our covenants.

From the Minister – March 2024

The spiritual theme for March is Transformation, and our worship services are working out to be engaging in the related ideas of listening, growing, and health, and how those connect with the practice of covenant.

From the Minister – February 2024

Our spiritual theme for the month of February is Justice and Equity, following with the other themes this year taken from the proposed Article 2 Values under consideration.

Jenna Nicholls Concert at UU – March 3!

Whether she’s belting out a New Orleans style dirge, plucking her 1920’s style original ballads on her Ukulele, or singing a cowboy tune, or a lush ballad on the piano, the music of Jenna Nicholls is giving a vintage genre a new spin with her own lush nostalgic style and melodic sensibility.
