Weekly Update - May 7th, 2020
Sunday Service: "Nurturer's Day"
May 1oth at 10:30 am
led by Ashleigh C. Swain and Jerry Breecher
This Sunday, we discuss how we got to a 21st century Mother’s Day, where we go from here, and give thanks to those who nurture us. As we are a welcoming congregation, and we know that everyone’s story is different, we look to the congregation for examples of those who have provided some sense of “family” for us, whether it is biological, adopted, chosen, or otherwise.

UUCSW's Sunday Services are currently offered online using Zoom. The link will open at 10:00 am for anyone who would like to attend our pre-service "Coffee Hour." The service will begin at 10:30 am.
