During most of the year, our Sunday morning worship service schedule includes a 10 a.m. service for families (children and adults) and a 10:30 a.m. service for adults (while children attend religious education classes). The service and the religious education classes both end at 11:30 a.m. and are followed by a time of refreshment and fellowship.
Services not following that schedule are indicated.

February 3 – “St. Mary: A Reflection on Direct Experience and Wonder”
This morning we honor the life of the poet Mary Oliver and we reflect on her work in light of the first source of Unitarian Universalism: ‘Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces that create and uphold life.’
February 10 – “Why is it so hard to talk about racism?”
This morning, we honor the life and work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and we reflect on why it can be so difficult to talk about race and racism.

February 24 – “No Free Lunch”
Wendell Berry has written, “Eaters…must understand that eating takes place inescapably in the world…and that how we eat determines, to a considerable extent, the way the world is used.” This morning we reflect on the environmental – and spiritual – costs of our food choices and on how we can best answer Berry’s call to “eat responsibly.”
