Practicing Being Human

Revs. Kristin and Christian Schmidt with Mary Muehlbach

11 a.m.

Every week in worship we affirm our mission as a congregation to “inspire spiritual growth and encourage lives of integrity, joy, and service.” Join us this Sunday as we explore how and why our greatest work as a church is forming healthy, vibrant Unitarian Universalists, or as James Luther Adams used to say, practicing being human. As part of this service, people of all ages are invited to bring their backpacks, laptop bags, and briefcases to church for our first-ever Blessing of the Backpacks! This will kick off the new year of learning and growing ahead of us and the first day of our fall Religious Education classes for children and youth! (ALSO WELCOME Balacz scholar, Lidia-Emese Bodor.)
