VERY IMPORTANT INFO FOR OUR VIEWING SUNDAY SERVICE

Tomorrow we will only be broadcasting our Sunday Service live on our Facebook pages, not on YouTube. You do not have to have a Facebook account to watch it. Click on this link tomorrow to view it. We are still in the process of upgrading our streaming capabilities and hopefully this situation will be resolved in the next two weeks. We apologize for any inconvenience. The service will be uploaded to YouTube and Instagram tomorrow afternoon.

A church president once said during a long methodical meeting, โ€œOrganizing Unitarian Universalists is like herding turtles!โ€ This Sunday we are planning to have our first hybrid Sunday morning worship service (both in-person and online.) Some of us have been out of our pandemic shells a long time, others are just starting to come out and still others are going back in as the Delta Variant comes to town. How do we create a sense of shared community together? This Sunday will be our Water Communion service. You are invited to bring water to our first in-person service from some place you spent time this summer or post pictures on social media (more details elsewhere in the newsletter.)
