Emerson's Worship ServicesUsually, our worship services at Emerson UUC 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.
At our facilities on Canton Road, we are handicap accessible. Our Sunday service is held in the Sanctuary at 9:45 a.m. and is followed by coffee and conversation.
During the school year, both Adult and Children and Youth Religious Education programs are scheduled from 11:15 a.m. until 12:15 p.m. Children and Youth Religious Education programs for young people four years old (by September first) through twelfth grade are offered most Sundays. Nursery and Toddler Care is offered for children from birth through three years old each Sunday during the worship service during Religious Education hour. Check the monthly newsletter and the calendar found on the front page of the web site to learn more about each of these programs as well as a full listing of all activities and meeting times. Special multi-generational activities are scheduled for June and July. Details can be found in the newsletter.
Dress is casual for our services and meetings.
