From Fountain to Flora!
In order to reduce water usage at USSB we are converting our beautiful Parish Courtyard fountain into a succulent garden. Please bring a donation of a succulent plant (please no trimmings) of your choice to our service on Sunday, September 21st and help us in our efforts to keep our grounds both sustainable as well as beautiful!

 

Water-Wise Update

You can expect to see the grass getting browner as USSB further reduces our water usage.  Although we first focused on less-visible areas of conservation, we have now turned down our watering system to the bare minimum.  We are also interested in replacing the curbside grass with more drought-tolerant ground-cover, but we need a team of volunteer gardeners to make this happen on a shoestring budget. Are you up for the challenge? Contact Rev. Julia:   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

nullSounds of Song & Silence-Taizé

September 17, 7 pm, Sanctuary.

A mid-week musical meditation in the ancient tradition of Taizé, short songs are repeated again and again with a medi­tative essence. Meditative singing becomes a way of listen­ing to our inner selves. Truly, we are expanding our worship horizons when we come together as a community to sing, meditate, listen to readings, and pray.

Pastoral Care E-mail

“Nurturing a spirit of connection and support during times of need.”

When a crisis hits or a major life transition happens, sometimes we need a little extra support. “Pastoral Care” is the term used to describe the kind of care that we offer one another during these hard times.  It may mean a visit from the minister, a bouquet of flowers or a hot meal, or simply sitting down with a cup of tea and another member of the congregation who is willing to listen.

The goal of Pastoral Care is to offer a supportive presence, to help in transition, to provide an environment of hope and growth, and to offer support on the spiritual journey.  If a member has a more serious concern or an ongoing need for support, we can help with a referral to outside resources.

Members, please login for more information.

Online Donations E-mail

The Unitarian Society has contracted with Vanco services to make possible online payments of pledge gifts as well as donations to the many programs and causes the congregation supports. This secure method of payment reduces risks of clerical errors, staff time and the usage of paper.

Payments may be made as a one time offering or on an ongoing (weekly,monthly, quarterly) basis. This method of payment is available for pledge commitments, our special bi-monthly Sunday service collections or for any other purpose you wish to give.

By setting up an additional and secure Vanco login and online profile we believe you will find this a quick, easy and accurate way to offer you financial support.

Please feel free to contact the office with any questions.
