We gather every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in our sanctuary for worship. With rituals, music, and reflections we explore our beliefs, seek meaning, and share our truths. Everyone is welcome to attend our services. During most of our Sunday services, the children and youth participate in our religious education program. Some Sundays, we all “Start Together” and the children leave after the “Time For All Ages”. There are special Sunday services throughout the year that are specifically intended to be inter-generational and all ages “Stay Together” to worship.
Here you will find the schedule of the Worship Schedule for this quarter.
Rites of Passage
Both our sanctuary and our minister, the Rev. Craig Schwalenberg, are available for weddings and memorial services. Our minister performs these rites of passage for UUSO members without charge as part of his service to the congregation. Non-members will be asked to pay an honorarium for these services. If you are interested in having Rev. Craig officiate your wedding or lead a memorial service, please contact him directly (see below). If you would like to inquire about renting our sanctuary for a service or an event, you can find more information here.
Traditionally, Unitarian Universalists do not practice the rite of baptism. We do, however, honor new life in our community with Child Dedications. These public rites take place during a Sunday morning worship service, usually on Mother’s Day and on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. If you have a newborn child, a newly adopted child, or your child of any age that is new to our community and you would like to honor your dedication to that child and ask for our community’s commitment and dedication to that child’s growth and development, please contact Rev. Craig (see below).
Other Rites and Services
Unitarian Universalism is a creedless faith, drawing from and open to many religious traditions. If you are interested in a religious service or rite of passage that is not listed here, please contact Rev. Craig directly at (607) 287-7906.
