What's UUp on Sunday, March 26, 2017?

Celebration of Life 11:00 am

Creedo: I Believe
Speaker: Rev. Peter Connolly

As members of a religious tradition that does not share a central belief, it is especially important for us to be able to state precisely what we each believe.  In order to encourage fellow UUs to grapple with this challenge, Rev. Connolly today shares his own credo, or belief statement.

Religious Exploration: Sundays 9:45-10:45

Nursery Infants and toddlers will be engaged with an age-appropriate chalice-lighting, story, activity, snack & play time each week. Room 214
