Sunday, July 16 - Lay-led service - Mark Dragovich & UUA Delegates
10:30 AM Service: "Report from the UUA General Assembly"
The General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association is an annual gathering of thousands of UUs from around the world. Several important things that will shape the future of our Association were discussed: ideas for change to the language our Principles and Source Traditions; the election of our first woman President; and the deep call to address how white privilege cultures come into play in Unitarian Universalism. A vibrant GA!
Sundays in July
Our 5th annual Specialty Class Summer (our summer program for children preK-5th grade on Sunday mornings which runs June 1st - Resumption Sunday in September) is off to a great start! These lessons consist of fun & informative experiences led by congregants and special guests.
July features lessons on beekeeping, our UU ancestor, Fannie Farmer, and much more!
Youth are invited to remain in the sanctuary throughout the summer.
This month's suggested readings for families/parents are silly and fun!
