Christmas Pageant

10:30am in person and on YouTube

After two years on Zoom, the annual Christmas Pageant will be back in person featuring over 20 participants of ALL ages! We hope you’ll join us for this special multigenerational service, as we playfully retell the nativity story, and enjoy our choir singing cherished carols and hymns – including the FRS version of the “Twelve Days of Christmas” led by Tim Fountain!

JUSTICE SUNDAYS

As Unitarian Universalists, we’re called on to advocate, organize, and act for justice as we strive to live out our faith in the world. Unitarian Universalism challenges us not only to seek our own truth and meaning, but to walk a path that honors the inherent worth and dignity of every person, as well as the interdependent web of all beings.

Our Justice Sundays bring together the cornerstones of Unitarian Universalism: normal Sunday worship to feed our spirits followed by time enjoying lunch together as a community to grow in fellowship, and justice learning and action to help us live our faith. On these once-a-month Sundays, join us in the lower meeting house after the worship service for a communal lunch of soup and salad and return to the sanctuary (or to a designated location in the community) at 12:30 for an hour of justice learning and action. Each month will have a different focus, though all are interrelated. Learn. Act. Connect. Live your faith. Join us!

Justice Sunday 2022-23 Dates: December 11; January 29; February 5; March 19; April 16; May 28
