Our Small Group Ministry program is all about having meaningful conversations with others. This morning some of our SGM Facilitators will led us in an exploration of this topic as well as an introduction to the Small Group Ministry program for those who may not have yet participated in it.

There is NO Religious Education or childcare in the summer. June 17 & July 22 are particularly appropriate for families.

Led by those who attended GA, Nancy Banks, Tyler Plaskon, Corey Stepp, Emily Jones and members of the denominational affairs committee.  

They will share their experiences and fill you in on all that happened at this very special General Assembly in Phoenix, Arizona. Music will be provided by a 'Ukulele Choir'  led by Pat Sorn.

Join Trisha Guditz, our Worship Associate, and Jack Zettler in a reflective service that explores how the experience of silence and solitude can be a spiritual practice and an opening to a richer interior life. 

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

led by Our Spiritual Conversation Group Leaders Ilene Rudman and Elizabeth Cobblah 
Every other Sunday during the regular church year, a small group meets between our 2 services in the Minister’s study to share a poem and engage in reflection and spiritual conversation about it. Poetry can communicate with us in a  deep and poignant way and is an essential part of a spiritual practice for many people.  Perhaps you have thought about going to one of these open group sessions. This worship service will give you some insight into the spiritual practice of sharing poetry.

Summer Services will be at 10AM in Fellowship Hall

led by FPC Director of Music, Mike Pfitzer

Singing together can lift our spirits, bring us deep meaning, and inspire us to acts of love and justice. On top of all that, it is good for you and just great fun! Whether you can read music or not, sing sharp, flat or hardly at all,  you will enjoy this service as Mike shares his thoughts about music, gets you singing some easy songs, and maybe even turns you into an on the spot choir!  Treat yourself to this service! ALL AGES ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE.

Sunday, June 10th, 2012

Yes, on this one Sunday you can bring your coffee to worship!  In fact, as we gather, the Minister and the Committee on Ministry will be serving coffee, juice and donuts in front of the church.  Then we will be called to gather on the side lawn of the church by our FPC Drummers! Our Musicians for this Sunday will lead our children in procession to our place of worship.

This will be a fun, informal service of stories and singing and sharing. DRESS CASUALLY and BRING A CHAIR OR BLANKET TO SIT ON!  Some chairs will be provided for senior members. Also, please bring and/or wear your Capital Campaign T-shirt for an all-group photo just prior to the picnic.

Don’t forget our annual picnic will immediately follow the service. If the weather isn’t kind, we will have the service and the picnic in Fellowship Hall.

An Intergenerational Service

We bring our regular season of Sunday Morning Worship in our sanctuary to a close with our beautiful flower communion ritual.  Please be sure to bring a cut flower or two.  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.  Two members of our Youth Group will perform a short skit entitled “A Dialogue about Flowers and Men” written many years ago for this special Sunday by our late Minister Emeritus, The Rev. Don Kafka.  Our Adult and Youth choirs, under the direction of Mike Pfitzer, and our children’s choir, under the director of Pat Sorn, will be providing beautiful music.

This is a very meaningful service that really communicates what is at the heart of our faith tradition.  If you are interested in learning more about Unitarian Universalism, this would be a great service to attend. 

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Unitarian Universalists are often accused of being too much in our heads or too intellectual in our approach to religion. What can we learn from mystics of the past and present about the heart of religion and the art of surrender?

Our service will be led by Allison Palm who just finished her second year in the Masters of Divinity program at Andover Newton Theological School. She is a lifelong Unitarian Universalist from central Minnesota and hopes to go into Parish Ministry once she completes her degree.

One Service Only at 10 AM (beginning of summer service schedule)

This will be an exciting service! Our Junior and Senior Youth selected the theme and they have been working with DRE, Michelle Cote and Music Director, Mike Pfitzer to create a meaningful service for all ages.  We are very proud of our Youth at FPC.  I hope you will be there to support them and hear their message.   We will also recognize our graduating seniors at this service.
