Unitarian Universalist

Events

The Meetinghouse holds an annual May Festival with plant sale, music, flea market and craft booths and refreshments. Several times a year we hold themed fundraising dinners; past themes have included Jamaican, Latin American, Hawaiian and German. 

We hold an annual labyrinth service, generally in January, where folks can walk a labyrinth set up in our sanctuary or use a lap labyrinth. A highlight of the year is our Annual Winter Solstice Candlelight service with high tea held near the Solstice in December.  We also have indoor Coffee House music, and seasonal outdoor popup concerts featuring local artists.

Note: In-person events currently on hold due to the virus situation.

December 2021 Events:

Film: "Mission Joy" - watch for free through December 2nd

Interfaith Power & Light network has been offered a unique opportunity to be among the first to share the new film, Mission: JOY. We are offering this inspiring film to you as a small token of our gratitude for your steadfast support of Interfaith Power & Light. You are the heart of the network and we appreciate you!

Watch the trailer and register here.

Deeply moving and laugh-out-loud funny, Mission: JOY is a documentary with unprecedented access to the unlikely friendship of two international icons who transcend religion: His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu. In their final joint mission, these self-described mischievous brothers give a master class in how to create joy in a world that was never easy for them. They offer neuroscience-backed wisdom to help each of us live with more joy, despite circumstances.  Inspired by New York Times bestseller The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in Changing World, the film showcases the exchange between these two Nobel Peace Prize winners that led to that book. 

First Friday Film Discussion of "Mission Joy" - Friday, December 3, 4 pm

Facilitated by Rev. Mellen Kennedy, via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/6130779853
