Join us for Sunday Services at 10:30 every Sunday and explore what, or rejoice in, what being a Unitarian Universalist is all about. Scroll down for the schedule of upcoming services.
Evensong is a service by you and for you. Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday we get together and present what inspires us be it music, poetry meditations, readings, etc. All are welcome.

"Tippy Canoe and Humility, Too" - Rev. Ann Schranz - 10:30 a.m.
On a recent vacation near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota, Rev. Ann managed to bring her canoeing skills from nonexistent to adequate. She had the distinction of being the only group member to "swim" while trying to get into the canoe after a short portage. Rev. Ann will share some reflections on trying new things, defining success, and the place of humility in learning.

"Detention, Bonds, and Visitation" - Rev. Ann Schranz - 10:30 a.m.
Immigration is a flashpoint issue in the country. Congress is stalled. Sometimes it feels as though there is little we can do to bring our Unitarian Universalist values into the complex situation. That is not so. We will hear stories of hope and impact from Rochelle McAdam of First Unitarian Church of Los Angeles and from Gordon Clint of the Conejo Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Gordon will speak about the visitation program at the Detention Center in Adelanto. Rochelle will speak about the Bond Fund which allows detainees to be released from detention while their cases are being processed. We will learn of opportunities for involvement and how to make a difference in the lives of detainees.
