Religious Services

Religious Services at UUCSR

Sunday morning is when the whole congregation comes together for religious education and worship. Through spoken word, music, silence and meditation you are welcome to  reflect upon the events of our lives and the events of our world in sacred space. During worship we cultivate fresh awareness and insights for our living, and share our sorrows and joys. In communal worship, we seek to discern our individual calling to help what is good in this world grow and thrive. Together we celebrate the gift of life and the interdependent web of which we are a part. 

Services are held Sundays at 11:00 a.m. from mid-September through June and at 10:00 a.m. from July 1 through Labor Day. Childcare for infants and toddlers and religious education for children and youth is provided. 

Soulful SundownSoulful Sundown services are held on the second Friday evening of each month, September through July. Soulful Sundown offers an informal, worship service at 7:30 p.m. that blends the spoken word and a wide selection of contemporary music. Dancing is always an option. Services are preceded by a meal at 6:30 p.m. and are followed by an all-ages coffee house starting at approximately 8:30 p.m. Soulful Sundown is family-friendly but free childcare is also provided.

Ministers lead Worship Services and model ministry to one another and the world. Meet Shelter Rock’s ministers and learn about Caring Ministry here.
