Sunday June 18th- “Faith of our Fathers”, a celebration of Father’s Day.
Rev. Barry Bloom
Father’s of all kinds have lovingly raised their children. Fathers who know how to offer nurturance, love, and intimacy. And those who never learned how. We will learn how to celebrate the one and develop compassion for the other. It isn’t always easy, but the quality of our own lives depends on it.

SSS (Spiritual Stimulation and Support) Group Meets 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at 7:00pm in sanctuary:
Our SSS Group continues to be a lively group of spiritual seekers with stimulating discussions over the last 5 months. We continue to meet in the sanctuary on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings at 7pm (no childcare is provided). ALL are welcome to join (even if you've never attended before). People come and go as they are able. Each session is a stand alone, and no preparation is needed. Over the summer months, we are discussing articles from a book called "Humanist Voices in Unitarian Universalism." We read 1-2 short articles, and then discuss. Are you curious about Humanism? Please join us for this Adult Religious Exploration group! Every voice adds depth and varied perspective to the discussions!! Yours would be appreciated. Contact facilitator Marcia Free for questions at (Marcia.email@example.com)
Don't miss the new Chalice Arts show! Photographs by Marybeth Coulter will be hanging in the sanctuary starting Mother's Day (May 14) and going through the end of July. Marybeth served as our church accompanist (2008-2010) and has worked in both photography and ceramics.
