Upcoming Services


Sunday April 22, 2018


April 22 - Earth Day Service - This year Earth Day falls on Sunday and we'd like to celebrate with a Youth engaged service. We will join together with Tommy Brown to ask ourselves how we as UU's act and live together with our animal friends. How can we share our Earth with all creatures? Children are encouraged to dress as their favorite animal or the color of the mask that they made. Some children have been making African animal masks in preparation for this event. The youth will share the importance of caring for our Earth and the other creatures who share it with us through the story of Sudan the White Rhino who recently passed away as the last remaining male of his species to live. The children will parade with their African Animal Mask in praise of the beautiful creatures our Seventh principle states are so precious and important. 

Tommy Brown will speak on Keeping House on our Home - The Earth is not only our home but it is also an amazingly beautiful place. After a spending a week in Costa Rica I am newly aware of the beauty and the fragility of our home planet. As we celebrate Earth Day this year we will reflect on both the beauty, fragility, and our responsibility for keeping house in our Earthly home.

April 29: "Spread the Knowledge and Love around"- Lynne Guitar, Ph.D. in Colonial Latin American History and Cultural Anthropology from Vanderbilt University, will speak about her lifelong love of languages and people of other cultures, and her international teaching experiences, including two decades of living, working, and researching in the Dominican Republic. She has focused her educational work on the Taíno Indians of the Greater Antilles, who were the first Native Americans to be “discovered” by Europeans, the first to be enslaved, and the first to be declared extinct…. Except that they weren’t, a fact that her research uncovered, which has helped to enflame an already existing spark by today’s Taíno descendants to prove that their extinction is a myth. Retired for the past two years, she continues to educate the world about Taínos through her historical-fiction books.
