Featured Upcoming Events
Worship Service: "Renewing Civil Society" by Rev. Bruce Taylor

Sunday, January 22, 10:00 AM

Two months after the election, have we gained some perspective? The results of the Presidential election were shocking to some and gratifying to others. But regardless of who won, much has been lost: civil society has been a major casualty. With the people so divided, how can we move forward together?

In the wake of Inauguration Day (and the Million Woman March), today's sermon considers what it will take to rebuild civil society and foster constructive conversations without (further) compromising truth or integrity.

Worship Service: "Shadows and Light" by Rev. John Pastor, UU Society of Gardner

Sunday, February 5, 10:00 AM

February 2nd is Groundhog Day, a holiday that we don't seem to give much attention to these days. It shares this date with Pagan and Christian holidays that also honor the symbols of shadows and light. It is one of Rev. John's favorite holidays. Come hear why!
