Practicing Being Human

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.)

In the Fields

11 a.m.

Work done well is a wonderful thing, but no person should be judged solely by the work they do. Come for a service about labor, humanity, and respecting each and every person on this planet.

Breaking Boundaries

11 a.m.

Join us this Solano Stroll Sunday for a service about our congregation’s connection with our wider communities and why we’re called to take our welcome outside our church walls.

The Fundamentals of Caring

11 a.m.

What does it mean to be a “Welcoming Congregation” in these turbulent times? This week we will explore ways that we are called to care for one another as well as the immense responsibility of caring for our wider community and global village. What are ways that we live up to this call within and outside of these walls and how can we prepare ourselves to welcome the challenges that surely lay ahead?

It’s Not About Us

11 a.m.

Welcoming strangers is championed in many traditions, but it can be tough to put into practice. This week in worship we will consider how we can welcome others more fully by moving past our class and cultural assumptions and putting the needs of others first.

Blessing of the Animals

12:30 p.m.

Calling all pets for a blessing of the animals service out on the Terrace. Animals of all kinds are welcome in carriers, on leashes, or you can even bring a picture of your pet to be blessed.
