Rev. Sara Hayman, Worship Leader

UUCE Choir Sings!  1st Sunday of the Month Potluck!

Plate split with MUUSAN

This month’s worship theme is BELONGING.  In this worship service, we will explore these questions:  How honest are we (with ourselves and with others) about our longing and our ambivalence to belong to a faith community, and to our UU congregation in particular?  What is it that holds us back at times from showing up more fully, and being willing to join with others in spiritual growth and making faithful risks together?
