10am Summer Services have begun!

10am Sunday Service | The Hunger for Touch
It's one of the biggest griefs of this time period. Unitarian Universalism's Our Whole Lives curriculum has a word for it–skin hunger. Do you miss hugging your friends? Reaching out to connect at the end of church? You are not alone. Let's explore this particular grief together.
Speaker: Rev. Lane Campbell

Due to COVID-19 we will be holding our worship services online for the foreseeable future. We will hold on-line services each Sunday at 10am (our regular summer worship time).
Upcoming Events &
Additional Announcements
Tuesdays | Drop-In Discussion: Our Love Affair with Styrofoam
Do you remember when the colorful styrofoam meat trays first showed up in the grocery store? Did your mom and grandma save them? It’s time to fall out of love: we will review and discuss polystyrene information from the EPA, CDC, and other reliable sources. Beth Ares presents. Drop-In Discussions are back with a virtual spin! We are meeting on Tuesday night, from 6:30-7:30pm. Contact for the Zoom link!
