Sunday Morning Worship Services
Sunday morning worship is the center of our congregational life. We gather in fellowship on Sundays at 10:30am to explore and affirm our faith. The service includes a time of personal quiet, music, community concerns and the spoken word shared by our Minister, a member of our community, a guest speaker or a guest minister.
The Service varies from week to week but is always reflective of Unitarian Universalism. The young people join us for the first few minutes of the service and then leave for their own program of religious education. We invite you to join us for an informal social gathering with coffee, tea and conversation following the Service.
Nursery care is available for infants and young children. If you prefer to have your child with you during the service and he or she becomes restless, you may step outside the sanctuary. Please feel free to leave the door ajar.
Getting more involved
Visitors are always welcome at the Sunday morning service, which starts at 10:30am. Some people choose to attend several services and activities before taking a step toward joining the congregation.
Look for opportunities to get to know others in the congregation at social occasions. View the website, weekly announcements or monthly newsletter for gatherings; Circle Suppers, Book Club, Game Night, or other social event.
Take a guest packet to explore Unitarian Universalism and ALUUC in more depth.
