NOTE TODAY WE START THE SUMMER SCHEDULE WITH ONLY ONE SERVICE AT 10AM
INTERGENERATIONAL SERVICE

Today we will celebrate our beautiful Flower Communion Ritual. Please be sure to bring a cut flower or two with you to church. We will bring them all together in one bouquet symbolizing the unity in our diversity. In doing so, we will recognize the many blessings, gifts and talents we each bring to this community. In gratitude for all we receive from others in our church community we will leave with the flower that another person brought. The worship will be led by Rev. Tom Rosiello and there will be great music from our choirs and instrumentalists. This is a very meaningful service that really communicates what is at the heart of our faith tradition. If you have a friend or neighbor who you think might be interested in Unitarian Universalism, this would be a great service to invite them to attend.

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

Today's services will focus on how we have built our church over the last 15 years. It is a service that will both look to the past and set the stage for the future. Tom will share some of things that were central to his ministry with us.
