Emerson Unitarian Universalist Services
Usually, our services have the components of our Protestant heritage. We sing, have a meditation and quiet time, a sermon, and perhaps a reading or two. The sermon reflects on questions of what it means to be human: love, compassion, suffering, living and dying, and the ethics for the in-between. The readings reflect the same concerns and may be from our hymnal, poetry, excerpts from novels, stories, narratives, as well as world religions' scriptures and writings.
As our history indicates, we are in an old building. Regretfully, that means that it is not handicapped accessible. We do have special needs parking spaces, but there are steps to get into the building and more steps to reach the bathrooms. We look forward to planning our new building so we can be accommodating and welcoming in this regard.
We hold regular Sunday services in the Sanctuary at 9:00 and 11:30 a.m. during the school year. From May 26 through July 28, 2013, we hold a single Sunday service at 10 a.m. Services are followed by conversation downstairs in the Fellowship Hall.
During the school year both Adult and Children and Youth Religious Education programs are scheduled from 10:15 – 11:15. Children and Youth Religious Education programs for young people four years old (by September first) through twelfth grade are offered each Sunday from 10:15 -11:15. Nursery and Toddler Care is offered for children from birth through three years old each Sunday during the worship services. Check the monthly newsletter and the calendar found on this Web site to learn more about each of these programs as well as a full listing of all activities and meeting times.
Special programming for young people in kindergarten through fifth grade is planned for June and July. Details can be found in the June newsletter.
Dress is casual for our services and meetings.
We have the religious diversity that makes UUs so interesting and such wonderful traveling companions on the search for truth and meaning! Liberal Christians, Agnostics, Pagans, Atheists, Humanists and believers in a higher power of many kinds, called by many names, all make their home here.
