Sunday Worship Services

August 3 – Must Be Present to Win!

All Ages Service at our Home Away from Home

With Rev. Roger Jones, Rev. Lucy Bunch, Lay Leader Kevin Sitter

and Guest Pianist Krista White

 There may be a few surprises in this all-ages worship service in a new space.  Nursery care is provided by our UUSS staff but there is no Religious Education today. 

 Procession into the Space!  Arrive at 10:00 to be part of the singing procession from the host courtyard into the sanctuary, holding high our symbols, like the UUSS banner and Chalice.  Come early to find a place to park across the street at the education center.  Stay after for a look around the host congregation’s campus—and coffee in Pilgrim Hall.

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
