Rev. Amy DeBeck

Labor Day

We will look at the intersection of Labor laws and our American lifestyles.

We Are a Sanctuary

but what does that mean? Rev. Amy will discuss all of the ways we can help new Americans. Second Hour: we will take a first run at putting together our Sanctuary guidelines, for later approval and acceptance. Committee chairs meet for a Biannual Committee of the Whole Meeting (COW).

Where Food Comes From

This Sunday encourages us to be sustainable—let us review how we can be better Earth stewards. Second Hour: 50 Mile Potluck (Try to bring dishes using local foods, grown or raised 50 miles away or less.)

Our Future

This morning we will bless the backpacks and other school supplies. The service will be related to how kids and youth are our future. Second Hour: Town Hall Meeting (Discussion on a proposal for a part time Director of Religious Education)

Recharging

As we deal with sea changes within the UUA and our nation, finding delight is important. What sparks YOUR spirit?

Growth Without Change Is Not Growth

July’s theme is growth and often that is about leaps in membership. So we will celebrate our new members today, but also, for a fellowship to grow in depth and maturity, changes happen too, to accept new people. We will talk about this today!

Roots, Hold Me Close

Each of us remembers the first time we had big questions. Who helped you find answers? Where did you feel most lovingly held? Memory and spirit lead this morning.

Freedom Is Not Free

The Rev. Amy DeBeck takes us on a trip through some of the battlegrounds of freedom on this Sunday before the Fourth of July. This service will also be the debut of our new pianist.

Thank You

Geneele Crump and Rev. Amy present the annual service where individuals and groups get thanks and receive (very inexpensive, token, “punny”) gifts for their work. Who gets socks this year? As always, we open up the service in the middle for you, the congregation, to thank those we did not.

617 UU CONGREGATIONS CAN’T BE WRONG

Join Rev. Amy and Zanzer Anderson for a morning of learning the use of this phrase, Dismantling White Supremacy. Over 600 UU congregations have signed on to discuss this on April 30 or May 7—today is our day. Plan to stay for a good discussion after, too, with childcare.
