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 Services at 11 am in Gage Hall
July 6 “The Parable of the Trapeze” Bernadette Victor
We fly, fall, stumble, and soar through life’s transitions. Some-times we hold on tight to the familiar, and sometimes we try to gain momentum and prepare to leap. When we finally leap, we pray we make it to the next handle and don't fall. Service based on “The Parable of the Trapeze” by Dannan Parry.
July 13 “Lessons from Broadway” Rev. Nancy Pellegrini
In the spirit of creativity for summer worship, Rev. Nancy Pellegrini will deliver her sermon in words and in song. She will explore themes from popular Broadway show tunes and consider what they teach us about life and faith.
