Sunday Worship Services

July 27
Looking Forward and Letting Go:
A “Moving” Service followed by Ground Breaking Ceremony
All Ages Service with Rev. Roger Jones and Rev. Lucy Bunch
With Lay Leader Taylor Lewis and Pianist Barbara Lazar

Don’t miss this historic occasion when we celebrate all the ministries launched, lives touched and comfort given in this hexagonal home for the past 53 years.  This is our last Sunday service before we move to 890 Morse Avenue (Sierra Arden United Church of Christ) for a year of renovation and expansion of the Main Hall here at home base.
Our Groundbreaking Ceremony immediately follows the 10:00 a.m. service.

We have one more Sunday Service on July 27 at 10:00 a.m. at 2425 Sierra Boulevard.
Religious Education for children happens during the 10:00 a.m. service, and we have Nursery Care staffed from 9:45am to 11:45am. Sermon discussions, forums, and Adult Enrichment programs happen after many of the services, and sometimes before.
If this is your first visit, we invite you to come a little early to check out where all these programs happen and meet our staff and volunteer leaders. Please feel welcome to join us after the service for refreshments and conversation, so you can learn more about our programs and we can get to know you.

Starting August 3: We meet at a new location at the new time of 10:15 a.m.
Just a mile away from our church, this will be our home away from home during the major expansion and renovation work at our main building, which we are excited about!
For about a year we will be having services at the Sierra Arden United Church of Christ (Congregational) Church, 890 Morse Avenue, at the corner of Morse and Northrop. Our service begins at 10:15 a.m. in their sanctuary, and Religious Education and Nursery Care also will take place also at 10:15 a.m.
Refreshments and conversation will follow in their kitchen and social hall. Please plan to join us, and come a little early on your first visit. There is parking at the church and across the street at the Adult Education Center. More information—including directions—will be posted as our moving date approaches.

Minister’s Words of Welcome

Roger JonesGreetings! Thanks for visiting our church web site. I’m happy to invite you to visit our Sunday services and other programs as well. You are always welcome here.

We promote spirituality without dogma.

Unitarian Universalist congregations encourage spiritual growth in a community of diverse religious beliefs and practices. You are welcome to explore your spiritual depths, pursue your sense of purpose, and consider your ethical questions--along with the rest of us. You are welcome here, whatever your faith background or your absence of one.

We search for hope and meaning in life.

What you won’t find here at UUSS are people who have all the answers. You won’t find people who have it all together or have life all figured out. Like you, we try to do the best we can. We find it helps us by coming together. We learn together and help out, we sing and listen, we grieve at sad news and provide caring and support. We celebrate and have fun together, and we eat quite a few meals together.

We try to make the world a better place by reaching out beyond our church walls to explore, give, serve, help out, and make our values and our voices heard in this region, in the State of California, and in the nation and world. You are welcome to participate.

We strive to be inclusive.

We are a welcoming congregation, including the human varieties of gender identity, sexual orientation, cultural and ethnic background, family situation, and citizenship or immigration status—as well as varieties of religious perspective. We build community and friendship across the generations. Indeed, congregations are one of the rare places anymore where people of all ages come together to build community.

We hope to get to know you. 

We invite you to get to know us a little better also. Consider attending a Sunday service or other program. After you check out this web site and read more about us, be in touch.

Yours in service,

Roger

Rev. Roger Jones
Senior Minister
