Sunday at UUCC – Nov. 24, 2019

Worship Services at 9 and 11 a.m.

“Feasting Together” – Thanksgiving Sunday – Rev. Molly Housh Gordon & DRE Jamila Batchelder

Join us for our beloved Thanksgiving cornbread communion service, as we reflect upon the ways community is formed by giving and receiving blessing. We will create an altar of gratitude for the blessings of our earth and ask you to bring a fruit or vegetable to place on the altar. Then stay after the service to turn the collected bounty into something yummy for our evening Harvest Potluck!

The worship services will be multi-generational. Our youth choir, Pulchram Vocem, will perform at the 11 a.m. service. There will be no children’s religious education classes. Children will be with us for worship services. Please welcome them and their families. Free nursery care for infants to 3-year-olds will be available at 8:45 a.m.

NOTE – Nov. 24 will be the last Sunday when we will offer worship services at 9 and 11 a.m. Starting Sunday, Dec. 1, there will be only one worship service at 10:30 a.m. Read more.
