Intergenerational Service 10:30 am – Growing Up?

Each year, our high school youth group leads a worship service, and each year the congregation is treated to thoughtful reflections and fabulous music as youth deliver a message that is meaningful to them.  This year, the service explores the sorrows and the satisfactions of growing up and being a teenager in 2023.

There is no family service today, but the youth are planning a story for children and quiet activities will be available at the rear of the sanctuary.

Chalice                                                                                                   Charlotte Dussault & Sam Nichamoff
We light this chalice for Unitarian Universalism.
This is a congregation of open minds.
This is a congregation of helping hands.
This is a congregation of loving hearts.
Together we work for peace and friendship in our world.

Covenant                                                                                                                             Charlotte Dussault
Love is the doctrine of this church
The quest for truth is its sacrament
And service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve humanity in fellowship
To the end that all souls shall grow
Into harmony with the divine:
Thus we do covenant together.

In the rest of our time together and in the days ahead,
May we listen to our deepest selves.
May we be open to life’s gifts.
And may we be moved to serve needs greater than our own.
