What to Expect during a Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Sunday Service
Our Sunday Services are lively, interesting, and filled with joyful sounds. If you are a first- time visitor, you may wonder what our services are all about.
They typically include:
Words of welcome
Lighting a flaming chalice, the symbol of our faith
Our Spoken Covenant (recited in both English Spanish)
Sharing of Joys, Sorrows Concerns (a time to share briefly an event in your life)
Music, both instrumental and vocal and in a variety of styles
Readings—ancient and contemporary
A sermon/message given by a minister, guest speaker, or a member of the congregation
An offering, collecting financial donations for the congregation and for social action work in the community.
Extinguishing of the Chalice
From time to time other elements are incorporated during holidays, celebrations, multigenerational services, and longer musical performances. We offer Religious Exploration programs for children and youth during the Sunday service. And those who attend Sunday services are invited to remain together afterwards for coffee and conversation.
