Worship Services at 9 and 11 a.m.

“How Can We Be of Service?” – Jan Weaver and Green Sanctuary Team

While personal actions are necessary to preserve the health and wellbeing of the planet, they are not sufficient. This Sunday we will explore what it means to work with those most affected by environmental harm.

Other Programs and Activities

9 to 10 a.m. – Forum Adult Discussion – Lower Level-Library/Forum Room

In April, the Forum Group is being coordinated by Wayne Anderson, Tribune travel writer. He will present a series titled “Travel from Different Perspectives.” The April 28 program will be “Offbeat Travel: Exploring the unexpected and mysterious.” Read about Forum.

9 to 10 a.m. – Children’s Religious Education – Lower Level-Centering Room

Our 9 a.m. children’s R.E. curriculum, called “Spirit Play,” is based on a Montessori approach to learning that encourages self-directed exploration. The children attend the first portion of the 9 a.m. worship service before going to their class. Free nursery care for infants to 3-year-olds will be available beginning at 8:45 a.m. Read more.

10:05 to 10:50 a.m. – Mindfulness Meditation – Centering Room, Schweitzer Classroom, or Fire Circle

Mindfulness Meditation takes place from 10:05 to 10:50 a.m. every Sunday in the Centering Room or Schweitzer classroom – or, if the weather is suitable, outside around the Fire Circle. On fourth Sundays throughout the year, Mindfulness Meditation takes place at the Fire Circle whatever the weather (unless it is raining). Meditators of all levels of experience are welcome. This is mainly silent meditation with some instruction, if needed, and with brief selected readings from eminent teachers. Our hope is to build a group of UU members committed to regular meditation practice. Email Peter Holmes for more information.

11 a.m. to noon – Children’s Religious Education – Lower Level

We offer an R.E. program at 11 a.m. for pre-schoolers through junior high school students, as well as nursery care for infants. The children and youths attend the first portion of the 11 a.m. worship service in the Sanctuary with their families before going to their classes or other scheduled activities. Free nursery care for infants to 3-year-olds will be available until 12:30 p.m. Read more.

12:30 to 2:30 p.m. – YRUU – Lower Level-YRUU Room

Members of YRUU will gather at church and then go downtown to attend the Earth Day celebration as a group.

1:30 to 4 p.m. – Walk on the Wild Side – Meet in Church Parking Lot

The Green Sanctuary Team is sponsoring monthly walks to explore the beauty of local woods and creeks (Gans Creek, Three Creeks, and Mark Twain National Forest). Shrug off your civilized self for a time and come with us into the peace of wild things. The walks are suitable for reasonably fit 10- to 70-year-olds. Children are welcome. There are plenty of stops along the way. For more information, email Peter Holmes.
