What happens at a UU service?

  1. Our whole community, children and adults together, gather for the first part of each service. (For our youngest friends who would be most comfortable in a more playful setting, we have a staffed nursery downstairs.)
  2. We open the service by lighting the chalice.
  3. A brief “Story for all Ages” is enjoyed by all. After it is complete, about twenty minutes into the service, children age three and up move to their classes in our Religious Exploration program. (Children of all ages are always welcome to stay upstairs with their parents.)
  4. In addition to the sermon, service includes instrumental music, hymns, a meditation, and an offering.
  5. Refreshments (coffee, tea, juice, and snacks) and community time follow the worship service. We’d like to meet you and hope that you’ll drop by for a visit. We’re friendly, but not “pushy.” (Anyone wearing a Welcoming Committee name tag will be glad to answer questions or provide assistance.)
