Upcoming Services

November 3
Strong Is What We Make Each Other
Rev. Meg Matheison
The theme for the month of November is “Building Beloved Community.” In a fun and silly multigenerational service, enjoy the story of Monkey and Hare and learn how they discover that working together helps them to build community!

November 6, 7 pm
Grief Service
The term “disenfranchised grief,” describes a grief that is not accepted, or considered not acceptable in our culture.  Among those ostracized forms of grief can be the lingering pain over someone long gone (“Isn’t it time you got over it?”) and grief for the loss of a pet (“She was just a cat!”) Is there disenfranchised grief hiding in your heart, longing to be honored? This service will hold the space to honor the neglected grief in our hearts.

We Are One
Rev. Meg Matheison

Today, our own beloved community at SWUU grows as we celebrate several new members joining our church family. We will also hear the diverse voices of various religious leaders when we have the opportunity to ask Jesus, Krishna, the Buddha, and Lao Tzu the tough questions!
