Upcoming Worship Services

Summer Sunday Services

August 19 – September 2 – 9:30am -10:30am

We gather at 9:30am, sitting in a circle in the Fireside Room or Emerson Hall. The facilitator for the day starts the discussion by supplying a word, phrase, or theme, which leads to an exchange of ideas that can evolve in any direction. Some sessions might begin with a short topical video (TED talk) to inspire conversation.
Summer Services are smaller in scale and less formal than our regular services, and are a great way to get to know others in the church community and for newcomers to ease in. There’s no sermon and little ritual, but there is a wonderful feeling of nurturing our spirits by sharing our joys, concerns, thoughts, and inspirations in a meaningful way and keeping our connections alive through the summer.

Saturday/Sunday, September 9/10
in THE GROVE at Ferry Beach, Saco, Maine

As part of our annual congregational retreat at Ferry Beach, we’ll worship together in the Grove on both Saturday and Sunday morning. This year we’ll be sharing Ferry Beach with the First Parish UU Church of Beverly, Massachusetts. On Saturday, Rev. Carol Strecker will lead a service on welcoming as spiritual practice. Rev. Strecker will co-lead Sunday’s service with the Rev. Kelly Weisman Asprooth-Jackson. Together we’ll enjoy the peace of tall pines and the seashore, make some new friends and deepen friendships with folks we know.

Water Communion Ingathering
in the UUCM Sanctuary, Milford

Rev. Carol Strecker
Join us for our annual ingathering service. Bring a little water from a place that has special meaning for you as a symbol of the many ways our lives meet and merge, like streams flowing to the sea. We gather to celebrate the source of life and the sources of our strength in community as we share our hopes for a year of reflection and renewal.
After the worship service, we’ll share in the fellowship of our first coffee hour of the new congregational year.

Sunday, September 24 at 10:30am
at Peabody Mill Environmental Center,
66 Brook Rd, Amherst, NH

Rev. Carol Strecker and Worship Committee
Come celebrate the autumnal equinox; a time of natural balance, when daylight equals darkness, in the wheel of the year. It’s a lovely time to stop and pay attention on this liminal day between the seasons. We’ll open our service by gathering in a circle of community. Then you’ll have a variety of opportunities to engage your senses in the natural world – walking the trails, exploring the pond, sharing music, or gathering for a time of reflection and conversation on the gifts of the season. You are invited to bring a picnic lunch so that we can enjoy a meal together after our explorations.
