Worship for Unitarian Universalists is grounded in some of the basic Protestant elements such as a sermon, hymns, readings and an offering. Our minister is in the pulpit about three times per month, except for summer months when she is off for vacation and study break. When the minister is not present, we have guest speakers who may be from our own church community or we may have guest ministers and lay speakers.
We strive to ground our worship services in the spiritual experience, while also engaging intellectual ideas. Our children are present for the first part of worship before they leave for their religious education classes. Occasionally we have intergenerational services that are intentionally designed to engage people of all ages. We also like to bring creative elements into our services through dramatic readings, liturgical dance or poetry.
All of our services have a strong musical presence through our choir and guest musicians. It is common to also have our own talented community members provide music at worship services. We are very proud of the beautiful Music made possible by our Music Director, Mark Zimmerman, and Pianist Yee Von Ng.
