A Few Words About Snow and Such:

It's snowing -- again! Now seems like as good an opportunity as any to share with you our thoughts, as your still-new Co-Ministers, about snow and Sunday morning services. In general, we want you to please focus on your safety first. If you don't feel like it's a good idea for you to come in on Sunday morning, even if you have a role in the Sunday morning service or have signed up to volunteer, please: stay home.

Over the years ahead, we may explore some online ways that we could gather on Sunday mornings when we are homebound. In the meantime, we believe in the teaching that "where two or more are gathered, there is sacred space." We will do our best to be at the Meeting House on Sunday mornings whenever we can and to create sacred, communal space for whoever does come.

We have conferred with our USH Board President, Bill LaPorte-Bryan, and Building and Grounds Chair, Stu Spence, and we are all on the same page: please put your safety first, but know that if you do choose to come in for tomorrow morning's service, or any other Sunday, there will be someone there (hopefully us!) to create worship and community, together.

Your Ministers,
Cathy and Heather
Rev. Heather Rion Starr

Read some comments about our worship services.

Even if you are not formally part of a faith community, we are most happy to work with you to design a ceremony or service that will recognize and celebrate your life events, such as births, weddings and deaths. We gladly perform christenings and naming ceremonies, weddings and commitment ceremonies, funerals and memorial services, which may also include interment in our memorial garden. Please call the ministers to discuss your need.
