Service on Sunday 11 am in Sanctuary
Dress is casual, unless you want to dress up--that's okay too. The typical service includes a sermon, songs relevant to the sermon, a period of silent reflection and an opportunity for people to express the joys and concerns in their lives. After the service, which lasts about an hour, all are invited next door to Gage Hall for coffee and conversation. There are religious education classes for the youth, and childcare is provided for the young ones.
The sermon you hear on any given Sunday is but a snapshot of our complex church community, just one thread in a tapestry woven from our diverse backgrounds and beliefs. (Sermons are available for download on the Sermons page.) You may also pick up reprints of previous sermons at the information table just inside Gage Hall at coffee hour. There you will find other information about Unitarian Universalism and a friendly person or two who will try to answer any questions you might have.
People with mobility issues and visitors, please park in the Church's parking lot behind Gage Hall or at The Charleston Day School lot across the street. All others, please park in the Queen Street and Forever 21 parking garages. Parking is free if you present the current Sunday bulletin. We have a ramp for wheelchair access into the sanctuary and FM listening devices are available from our ushers. Large print copies of the bulletin are also available.
Childcare is provided in the Annex during Services.
SUNDAY CHURCH SCHEDULE - 11 am
December 1 “If There Were a God,” Rev. Danny Reed
The simple proposition, "what if?" can invite an exploration of deep questions and shallow assumptions, and the other way 'round too. If there were a God, would we be receptive? Surprised? Worried? Let's ask "what if?"
December 8 Annual Religious Education Holiday Pageant
Join us for the children's annual celebration of the holidays with music, song and an unconventional nativity reenactment.
December 15 Choral Cantata
Come and receive this annual gift from our choir and Music Director Johanna Evenson. An eclectic service of anthems, carols, and readings to lift our spirits and allow the music of the season a chance to calm and guide us amidst the distractions of December.
December 22 "Tannenbaum, Tinsel, and Truce," Rev. Reed
A beautiful wartime anomaly reminds us of the power of Christmas to change attitudes, hearts and perhaps history. Even if taken seriously, but not literally, can the symbols of the season still touch us?
December 24 Annual Christmas Eve Services at 6 and 8 pm
We open wide our doors and also our hearts for a service of candlelight, carols and lessons. Come gather with family, friends, and visitors as we fill the church with golden glow, silver song, and a legend of love. Our annual collection for social outreach, supporting local children living in poverty, will be received. A time of fellowship and refreshment will follow both services.
December 29 Annual New Year Fireside Service
This annual fireside service will be held in Gage Hall. There will be music and thoughts about the New Year presented by some of our members.
Forums at 10 am in Gage Hall
