Spring Blossoms

Join us this Sunday, April 20th!

9:30 a.m. Program: Easter Celebration!

Please join us for a joyful Easter celebration of the Miracle of Life.  There will be poetry, music, flowers, and a special conversation between Patti Beedles and the children on the miracle of seeds.  Everyone is welcome!

11:00 a.m. “Unitarian Universalist Easter: Blessing our Lives, Saving our World”  
Rev. Jill Jarvis with Worship Associates John Brewer and Lara Wilson

Is the message of the Easter story really one of individual  eternal salvation through belief?  We join with ancient Christians and modern theologians to answer:  No! The story of love, justice, crucifixion and resurrection calls us to bless the world together, to bring salvation now to the living.  Join us for a beautiful, inspirational Easter service enriched by Byzantine artwork, a special choir piece created by UU musician Jason Shelton, and our traditional communion ritual, “Together We Can Change the World.”

Noon: Easter Luncheon organized by our Youth Group!

Upcoming Programs:

 

April 20:  Easter Program; Lynne Bodle and Janney Burgess
