Summer Sunday Service  -  10:00 AM

Jefferson's Jesus

Pastor AJ Blackwood, M. Div.

"Using a razor and glue, Jefferson cut and pasted his arrangement of selected verses from the King James Version of the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John in chronological order—putting together excerpts from one text with those of another to create a single narrative."

We will be exploring the life and message of Jesus of Nazareth through the eyes of Jefferson and discussing how these ideals have shaped modern day UU Christianity.

Resistance, A UU Tradition

Pastor AJ Blackwood, M. Div.
 
Resistance is NOT futile. From our earliest days, Unitarian and Universalists have resisted oppression in many forms.
 
During this service we will be reflecting on why resistance is built into the DNA of who we are as UU's in 2018.

COMMUNITY POTLUCK
July 8 after the service

Coming Sunday is our monthly Potluck gathering. Lets make it an Easy Living one, to enjoy each other’s company break bread together, and still keep our cool.  Perhaps this is a time of salad and lite food. Still, feel free to bring whatever you like, it will be gone! Do you have a dish that is a favorite family or special personal recipe just right for summer lunches?? A purchased prepared dish is fine too. All  contributions are appreciated and add to the table.

If bringing food is not something you can do, perhaps you can contribute to our hospitality inventory by bringing paper plates, hot cups, or other paper items.  There is also a Donations Welcome basket on the table to help defray the costs of these items. Can you spare a buck or two?

To help with prep and clean up, bring your dish ready to serve and take it home when the potluck is over!  

Thank you for your participation and see you Sunday.
