LIVING OUR VALUES
As you plan your garden this spring, consider plants that provide food for pollinators: bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Pollinators are threatened by habitat loss and pesticides. They are critical for food production and ecosystem health.

"Listen to the Truth That’s Inside You”
High School Senior Bridging Service
The Rev. Suzelle Lynch and Dave Cicero, Lifespan Director of Religious Education

Unitarian Universalists recognize that the transition from being a high school youth to young adulthood (age 18-35) is a moment to be celebrated, a process to be supported, and requires a lifelong commitment from all of us. Today’s Bridging Ceremony service is the way we honor the transition for UUCW’s high school seniors. Meet them today, celebrate their achievement, and cheer for their future plans!
Come  as  you   are  - leave inspired!
