WORSHIP & SERMONS

Some have suggested that a Sunday service is a journey or pilgrimage in which we are drawn out of our own concerns to join a community in exploration and to feel a renewed connection with the sacred in life. The service may be partly a time of reflection, partly an opportunity to experience a challenge, partly a time to mourn or celebrate, and partly a time to serve Life. At the end of the journey, the individual is alone again, but renewed and inspired to go out into the world.

Each week we gather to worship and be together on Sunday mornings.  Our services are typically geared towards adults.  Children and youth participate in Religious Education classes downstairs during worship. We also offer 15-minute chapel services for all ages from September - May.  During the summer months we offer childcare for children five and under.  We also have evening Vespers Services rom 6:45 - 7:15 pm on the second Wednesday of the month.

April's Worship Theme is Emergence

During the months of September - May, Cedar Lane has a monthly worship theme as determined by our Soul Matters programming.  Over 150 Unitarian Universalist congregations participate in this program. Sunday worship services and monthly Soul Matters small group ministry materials center on that month's theme as a way to provide a deeper connection to these important themes.

UPCOMING WORSHIP SERVICES

"Every Day is Earth Day"
April 22 AT 9 AM and 11 AM
Rev. Katie Romano Griffin

Earth Day, first commemorated in the United States in 1970, is now celebrated in 192 countries around the world as a way of both honoring the Earth and calling attention to the devastating dangers of climate change.  

"Growing a Soul"
April 29 AT 9 AM and 11 AM
Rev. Abhi Janamanchi

The poet Mark Nepo says, “and we are reborn each time we touch what matters” which is what we are trying to do here: we are trying to touch what matters so that we may be reborn once a week, renewed, restored, replenished, and reminded of who we are and who we mean to be. The service will explore the meaning and purpose of a liberal religious community. We will welcome new members during the service. A congregational fire drill will follow each service.
