Upcoming Sermons & Services

November Worship Theme - Attention

Paying Attention to What Is Being Created

Rev. Dr. Linda Olson Peebles
Sunday, November 24 — 9:00 a.m. & 11:15 a.m.

This multigenerational service of Thanksgiving will use bread-making as a metaphor for the importance of all of us to pay attention to the seeds we plant, the grains we grind, the dough we mix and let rise to shape and bake. When creation happens in community, we give thanks and share the bread we bake (which we will do!). The choir is singing two beautiful anthems, and Rev. Linda and DRE Carla Miller offer their thoughts and prayers.
 
The UUCR Choir will sing; Justin Furnia, piano.
 
Multigenerational Service—All* gather together in the Sanctuary for this service. *Nursery care for infants—4-year-olds is available during the entire service in Building 3, Room 33.
