Worship Celebrations - Sundays at 10:30 am

Sunday, November 18, 2018—10:30 AM

Thanksgiving Sunday. “Bread Communion,” Rev. David Herndon and Erica Shadowsong.

Our multigenerational Thanksgiving celebration is designed to appeal to all ages. We will be celebrating the Bread Communion that Steven Mead, our Interim Director of Ministries with Children and Youth, introduced during his two years (2015 – 2017) with First Unitarian Church. Each household is encouraged to bring and share bread that reflects their family heritage. We will also be welcoming the new members who have joined First Unitarian Church over the last twelve months. And following our worship celebrations, everyone is invited to gather in the Undercroft Gallery to enjoy our annual Thanksgiving lunch. This will be a very good Sunday to come to First Unitarian Church!

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2018- 10:30 AM

“Celebrating in Song,”  Ellen Gozion and Rev. David Herndon.

This morning, our worship celebration will be simple and heartfelt: we will gather to sing hymns and listen to readings. Maybe we will sing your favorite hymn! Maybe we will sing someone else’s favorite hymn! Come and be reminded of your spiritual aspirations and values presented through stories and spoken images! Come and join in joyful congregational singing!
