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 during worship. During the summer months we offer childcare for children five and under.

Worship Themes

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