The worship theme for May is “Tradition”

Sunday, May 8

During Children’s Religious Education (CRE) children will be exploring the traditional spring festival of May Day and the UU tradition of Coming of Age, as well as personal and family traditions.

What are some of your family’s favorite traditions?

We hold two services, one at 9:15 a.m. and the other at 11:00 a.m. Join us for coffee between services and get to know other RE Families.

RE begins in the Sanctuary and following the Time for All Ages, continues in lower campus classrooms until 10:30 a.m. Childcare is available from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Upcoming Special Events

A wonderful way of experiencing a cornerstone UU tradition is just around the corner: the All-Welcome Coming of Age Service, held on May 15. As our five youth have been preparing for this service and writing their personal credos, they have been contemplating what they love, how they shall live, Unitarian Universalism’s positive impact on them and in our world, their childhood, and their approaching adulthood. Come hear what these amazing youth have to share.
