Starting on the fourth Sunday in August and continuing each week through the second Sunday in June, our community members come together on Sunday mornings to celebrate life. [In the summer we do things a bit differently, see our summer page.] We participate in Unitarian Universalist rituals, we recite familiar words, sing songs, listen to the words of our friends and our Minister, listen to great music.  We read to the children, we read to each other. We feast our eyes on beautiful flowers brought to the sanctuary by members.

We welcome all people interested in pursuing the journey toward a spiritual life to join us in our Sunday celebrations.

We come together at 10:30 in the morning  [except in the summer when we meet at 9:30 AM], and enjoy a social hour in the parlor after the service.  Come early and join in the setting up – all hands are welcome.

Sunday services are planned by the Celebrations Committee, working in cooperation with our Minister.

While the content of our Sunday Celebrations may vary, the services are often built around the following framework:
