"Caring for Our Faith"
8:30am and 10:30am In-person worship
(10:30am is also Live Streamed)
We hope you will join us either in person or virtually for one of our worship services this Sunday. Know that they will be a little bit different from one another. Our 8:30am service will follow our usual worship format, and our 10:30am worship will include the Rite of Confirmation for our young people, so please know that there will be extra visitors and a different format at that service. At both services we will use some liturgy and scripture inspired by the thoughts, reflections and wishes of our confirmands as we think about ways that Caring for God's Beloved Creation also means Caring for Our Future. Our Music Director, Toni Sullivan, will provide special music at 8:30am, and our Chancel Choir and the world's music library will provide special music at 10:30am worship.
Our 10:30am service is LIVE STREAMED and RECORDED. You can live stream our 10:30am service for May 22nd, from the following link: https://youtu.be/08wCpz-cygQ
Recordings of our worship services can be found on our YouTube page "uccbvideo".
