"Belonging Within"

Sunday, September 18 — The author Maya Angelou once shared, "I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself." Even as many of us are reengaging familiar routines, and beginning to scratch the surface of all that has changed and been lost over the past two years, we consider the question - what is belonging within? What does it mean to be at home, wherever we find ourselves? Also this Sunday, we will bless our wonderful Family Faith Formation teachers! Led by Rev. Dr. Rebekah A. Savage. Special music by WildBerry Jam; Dick Gilbert on piano.

First Fifteen — Three Sundays a month, all ages* attend worship in the Sanctuary for the “First Fifteen” minutes, after which Children’s and Middle School Youth Religious Education Classes will be excused to their classrooms. Parents of children in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade are asked to sign their children out from classes ten minutes after the end of worship service. Children in 4th Grade and up will be dismissed to find their parents at the end of class. *Nursery care for infants through 4-year-olds is available during the entire service in Room 33.

Join us following the service for our annual Activities Fair!


"Belonging or Be-Longing"

Sunday, September 25 — Part of being in community is finding rest and solace in being a part of something greater than ourselves. The other part of being in community is finding ways to expand our spiritual journey towards healing and transformation, to learn and grow together. This expansion is a longing, a yearning for our individual and collective liberation. What is spirit saying to you, to us today? Led by Rev. Dr. Rebekah A. Savage. The UUCR Community Choir will sing; Justin Furnia on piano.
