Sunday, May 28 at 10:30am  Blessing of the Animals

Linda Goodman and Joe Pollock

The animals in our lives can often transform our anxiety to calm, give us new perspectives, and bring sheer, in-the-moment joy. We learn so much from them. Come and celebrate our furry, hairy, winged, and scaled friends at this service. Animals of all shapes and sizes are welcome. (Those that bite, sting, or scratch should be constrained.) If you can’t bring your animal, bring a photo! We will also light candles for those animals who have died since our last Animal Blessing service. This worship will be held downstairs in Barnum Hall.

Sunday, June 4 at 10:30am   Celebrating Community

Rev. Barbara McKusick Liscord, Lynn Coakley, and Candy Shirey

We will be recognizing our volunteers, enjoying a slide show of our congregational year, and singing! This will be a shorter multigenerational service, followed by the Annual Meeting, where voting members will make decisions about the operations of our congregation. If you would like to have a say in how our congregation operates and are not currently a voting member, please contact Rev. Barbara through our office at office@uucm.org or 603-673-1870. Please send photos from our 2016-2017 church year to Candy at candyjshirey@comcast.net by Wednesday, May 17.

Sunday, June 11 at 10:30am  Bridging, Saying Farewell, and Flower Communion

Rev. Barbara McKusick Liscord

This is our final regular worship service of the congregational year. We will honor our youth who are graduating from high school and say thank you and farewell to Kali Fyre, our ministerial intern of three years. This will be Rev. Barbara’s last worship service with us after 15 years of our shared ministry. Please bring a blossom to share in our annual flower communion, which began in Czechoslovakia after WWI when Rev. Norbert Capek created the service to uplift the lives of his parishioners who had suffered through the dark time of war.

Sundays, June 18 – Sept. 3, 9:30-10:30am  Summer Services

Note earlier time!

Summer Services are smaller in scale and less formal than our regular services. They provide a way to keep our connections alive through the summer. More aptly called “significant Sunday sharing,” these sessions provide a time to share our joys, concerns, thoughts, and inspirations in a meaningful way. We sit in a circle in the Fireside Room and the week’s leader supplies a word, phrase, or theme, which leads to a group discussion that can evolve in any direction. There’s no sermon and little ritual, but there is a wonderful feeling of nurturing our spirits by sharing our thoughts and experiences. If you have questions or would like to facilitate a circle, please contact Cathy at cathy.goldwater@gmail.com.

Sat., Sept. 9 & Sun., Sept. 10 in the Grove at Ferry Beach

As part of our annual congregational retreat at Ferry Beach in Saco, Maine, we join together for worship services in the Grove. Come to the peace of tall pines and the seashore. Contact Beth Soederberg beth@soederberg.org with any questions about the retreat.
