September 4th: “Together Again”
Although most Unitarian Universalist congregations don’t shut down for the Summer, many still hold an “Ingathering” service to bring people together again. After two-and-a-half years of pandemic disruption, let’s hold a big celebration that we are together again here at the UUFP, with an exciting Fall of pumpkins and more ahead of us!
There will be live music at the Service, and it will be followed by a potluck meal!
September 11th: “Twenty-One Years Later”
It’s been twenty-one years since the events of 9/11 2001, long enough for a whole generation of Americans to grow up. As our society continues to grapple with the legacy of that day, let's take stock of what it has meant to us. How did you experience 9/11? Where were you and what do you remember? How were you affected by that day?
September 18th: “Into Covenant... and Beyond!”
Join the Committee on Ministry for a joyous Service as we take our first steps in creating a congregational covenant. Discover how being in covenant can calm our fears, connect us more deeply in love, and inspire us to live out our highest Unitarian Universalist values now and in the future.
The Committee on Ministry’s primary purpose is to foster the health of congregational life and the effectiveness of the UUFP’s Ministry. In 2019, the Policy Board charged the Committee on Ministry with developing a congregational covenant as a critical element without which neither our Mission nor our Vision can succeed.
September 25th: “Flowing as One”
The Water Communion is one of Unitarian Universalism’s beloved seasonal rituals. It was created at the 1980 UU Women and Religion Continental Convocation as a feminist affirmation of community, but over the years it became dominated by personal travelogs. Today we hold the Water Communion to emphasize what it means to belong.
For the first time since the pandemic, we’ll celebrate the Water Communion together! Please bring a small amount of water from your home — from your kitchen sink is perfect. During the service, we’ll pour the water into a common bowl, representing what each of us brings to the shared life of our congregation.
