The Church is Dead, Long Live the Church!

Revs. Kristin and Christian Schmidt with Carol Carlisle

11:00 a.m.

500 years after Martin Luther courageously instigated the Reformation, religion in our world has begun another process of transformation. This week in worship we will imagine how religion might change in the centuries to come and Reverends Christian and Kristin will offer “the next 95 theses.”

  • Sing-Along Messiah

    • Hello Music Lovers, UUCB has been hosting a sing-along of Handel's glorious Messiah for decades.

Dear UUCB members and friends,

After touching base with Board President Jack Duggan, reviewing health warnings about the air quality in the area, and learning about several school system cancellations, we have urged church staff to work from home tomorrow. We likewise urge all of you to err on the side of caution and consider carefully if you should come to church tomorrow, Thursday, October 12.

If you have a church event or meeting scheduled for tomorrow and can cancel it without much disruption, we recommend that you do. While we will make sure the church is unlocked in the morning, we have encouraged our facilities staff to take the day off. Also, the facilitators of the "Class Conversations" workshop scheduled for this Saturday have decided to postpone the workshop until a later date due to their concerns over air quality.

We hope everyone will take it easy in the next few days and do whatever you can to limit your exposure to the air outside right now.

In faith,

Revs. Kristin and Christian Schmidt
