WORSHIP SCHEDULE

10:30 am Worship Service From September through June we have regular church service from 10:30 – 11:30 am which is followed by a time of virtual fellowship. All ages are welcome at this service although we do have a service geared especially for families with children in grades 8 and under. See below for details. About once per month, we combine these two services into one 10:30 intergenerational service, usually for special occasions such as holidays and holy days.

A 10 a.m. Family Service Our interactive family worship services support parents and children in talking with one another about Unitarian Universalist values. We explore big topics and ask big questions. We make meaning through dialogue and are encouraged to continue the conversation beyond worship. Watch this space for upcoming topics. The Family service schedule and more RE news is available at this link: RE Newsletter.

Details of the upcoming Sunday service are posted at https://www.uusharon.org/oos/ by Saturday morning.



November 6

10:00am Family Service -The Parable of the Good Samaritan

What is a neighbor? Who is your neighbor? This parable will help us explore what it means to put our individual agendas aside and come to the aid of another.

10:30am Adult Service -Deeds Not Creeds

You may have noticed our banner outside which proclaims, “Deeds Not Creeds.” What does that mean? We’ll explore examples of faith in action, from the Biblical text of James to the social gospel movement, and the history of community ministry within Unitarian Universalism. Rev. Jolie preaching.


November 13

10:00am Family Service – Tikkun Olam – Repairing the World

Behind the Hebrew term Tikkun Olam is a story that offers an ancient mandate to repair the world. We’ll explore a modern story of how one Jewish girl’s acts of tikkun olam brought healing to a Jewish community in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. What acts of caring can we bring to our own communities?

10:30 am Adult Service- The Message of Veterans For Peace

Veterans For Peace is a global organization of military veterans and allies who advocate for peace. On November 11 each year, their members honor the original traditions of the day, formerly known as Armistice Day, by ringing bells and calling for peace. They say, “as veterans we know that a day that celebrates peace, not war, is the best way to honor the sacrifices of veterans.” Our service today will reflect on this message. Rev. Jolie preaching.


Nov 20 Giving Thanks – One Service at 10:30 AM. RE starts after Time For All Ages. No Family Service today.

We will gather as an intergenerational community for the first portion of our service today and hear a story of the first “Thanksgiving” from the Wampanoag perspective. Our worship will continue with a sermon on the meaning of land acknowledgments, and how honoring our relationship with the land and all its people can be a spiritual practice. Rev. Jolie preaching.


Nov 27 Gratitude Chalice Circle – Intergenerational Service at 10:30 AM. No Family Service today, no RE today.

On this Sunday after Thanksgiving, we will reflect and share on the theme of gratitude in an interactive format we call a “chalice circle.” UCS Member Val Vigoda will lead us in this holy conversation for all ages about what we are thankful for.
