Worship Celebrations - Sundays at 10:30 AM

SUNDAY, JUNE 4 | Flower Communion Sunday & Farewell to Steven Mead
 
Steven Mead, Interim Religious Educator and Rev. David Herndon, Senior Minister.
 
Bring a flower to this uniquely Unitarian Universalist celebration which encompasses themes of religious community, environmental stewardship, resistance to oppression, peace, and partnerships across international borders. We will be saying “Farewell” to our interim religious educator, Steven Mead, as he moves on to his next assignment with the Unitarian Universalist Church of Santa Fe, New Mexico. We will also be recognizing and thanking our religious education teachers. Our choristers will be singing “Total Praise.” After our worship celebration, you are invited to say for our Spring Picnic!
 
Two Sundays Exploring Emerson’s Divinity School Address:

SUNDAY, JUNE 11 | Pride Sunday

SUNDAY, JUNE 18 | Fathers’ Day

The Rev. Dr. David Herndon, Senior Minister

Unitarian minister Ralph Waldo Emerson delivered his “Divinity School Address” at Harvard Divinity School on July 15, 1838. Historian Conrad Wright has called the Divinity School Address “a perenially fresh solvent of dogmatic orthodoxies.” It has deeply influenced our Unitarian Universalist understanding of religion. How might this landmark sermon offer encouragement to all those who claim equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people? More generally, how might the Divinity School Address speak to all Unitarian Universalists as we pursue our personal spiritual journeys and answer our calling to serve others?

SUNDAY, JUNE 25 |  Farewell to Autumn Detchon
 
Autumn Detchon, Young Adult and Campus Ministry Coordinator.
 
 We welcome to our pulpit this morning Autumn Detchon, who has served as our Young Adult and Campus Ministry Coordinator since August 2014. This is our opportunity to say “Farewell” to
Autumn, for she is entering the School of Social Work at the University of Pittsburgh for the next stage of her career. We will miss you, Autumn!

You are invited and welcome to come to our church. We hope this brief introduction can help you.

If you have suggestions on future services or would like to help with the service, please contact one of the many Sunday Celebration Teams.
