Let’s celebrate our congregation and the beautiful life-affirming faith tradition we’re part of!  There will be lots of singing, sharing of stories, and opportunities to get engaged with our mission and work. We will also have live music from our folk music group today.

  • The Share the Plate for Sept. 24 and Oct. 1 is Wheels for Winners, a local all volunteer run non-profit that fixes up used bicycles and gives them away, along with a helmet and lock, to children and adults who have done some sort of community service. These bikes provide critical transportation to school, jobs and community events for many low income persons, immigrants and teens. Thanks to Kelly Kearns for nominating them.

After the service, join Rev. Karen for a workshop “Writing Your UU Elevator Speech”.
