May Worship Theme - Delight

Legacy Sunday

Rev. Rebekah Savage
Sunday, May 26 — 9:00 a.m. & 11:15 a.m. | Memorial Day

The introductory words to the offertory often are: "We drink water from wells we did not dig, we find rest under trees we did not plant, we come to houses of worship because of those who went before us." To remember is to keep present our forebears with gratitude and reverence. On this Sunday, we honor the Legacies and memories of our UUCR family.
 
Special music by Bonfire of the Mannakeys. 
 
Chalice Chapel—One Sunday in most months, children and youth gather in Founders Hall for worship where they will sing, share, and create together. Nursery care for infants—3-year-olds is available during the entire service in Building 3, Room 33. 

SUMMER SERVICES BEGIN JUNE 2: ONE SERVICE AT 10:00 A.M.

Prepare to laugh, be silly, and experience worship in a whole new way! Led by Sarah Jebian with homily by Rev. Strauss.
