For those who wish to worship with us in-person, doors open at 10:30 AM. Masks required. Worshippers will be asked to sign in for contact tracing purposes and masks are required. An usher will escort you to your pew and we ask that you remain in your pew for the rest of the time inside to maintain 3 feet apart from others. Prelude and live-streaming will start at 10:50 AM. A fellowship on the bricks will take place immediately following the service.

For those who wish to worship virtually, we are continuing to improve our live-streaming equipment and process. Join us on YouTube (link below) at 10:50 AM from the comfort of your own home. You can also find the link on our YouTube channel homepage or our website homepage.
COVID-Related Reminders

Memorial Project: MASS Design Group Presentation
Scheduled for October 3 - Postponed
The presentation by the MASS Design Group scheduled for Sunday, October 3 has been postponed to a date later in the year.

Upcoming Minn's Lecture Series
Minns Fall 2021 Series | October 7, 14 & 21 | "The Coming Good Society," William F. Schulz

After decades of promoting human rights, Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz will challenge us to think hard about how rights evolve with changing circumstances, and what rights will look like ten, twenty, or fifty years from now. In these Minns Lectures, he will detail the many frontiers of rights today and the debates surrounding them.

Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz served as president of the Unitarian Universalist Association before becoming executive director of Amnesty International USA in 1994 and then president of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee from 2010–16. He is co-author with Sushma Raman of The Coming Good Society: Why New Realities Demand New Rights (Harvard University Press).

The first lecture will take place on Thursday, October 7 with the theme "Where Do Rights Come From?" Click here for more information.

We rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.
Romans 12:15
We rejoice with Anne and Peter Sexton, as they celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary last weekend, and also with Anne who celebrated her 80th birthday a few weeks ago. May we all live in joy and laughter as Anne does!

We rejoice with Michael Bergeron, our Head Usher and the Chair of Parish Council, on the beautiful memorial service and celebration of life he hosted for his beloved wife Pamela Steele Bergeron last Saturday, September 25, 2021. The death of Pam last March left a chasm in many hearts and in our church community. Due to the pandemic, Michael waited long before being able to gather their extended family and friends for a worship service worthy of Pam, and sufficiently safe in light of COVID. The reduced number able to gather heard wonderful tributes, that well captured Pam's kindness and love to all; she inspires us to live with as much as grace and generosity as she. The music Pam had selected was beautifully offered by our Music Director, Heinrich Christensen, Choir members Emily Bieber-Harris, Alison LaRosa, and Josh Glassman, and the Riverview Chamber Players. Michael extends his gratitude to you, his church, for your support. May we continue to hold our members Michael and his daughter Caroline in our prayers, and give thanks for Pam's life with us for 25 years.
