Sunday Mornings—"Enter, Rejoice, & Come In"!

Join in this, our celebratory welcome hymn, as we begin our worship together.


What to Expect

Worship services at UUFP are celebrated at 9:30 and 11:15 a.m. Visitors and members are welcomed each Sunday at the entrance of the Sanctuary building by a Membership Team Greeter (who will be wearing a white stole). We request you take a moment to sign our guest book at the Welcome podium and receive your Newcomer Packet containing useful information about our Fellowship and our Unitarian Universalist faith. We mingle in the Common Area before both services, and refreshments are provided by one of our Hospitality Teams. We hope that gathering time will help us get to know each other better.

Fifteen minutes before the service begins, we offer music for quiet contemplation. You are welcome to enter the sanctuary and enjoy this quiet time. Then, shortly before the service begins, a bell rings, the sanctuary doors open, and you will hear our welcoming hymn, “Enter, Rejoice and Come In.” If you have not already entered, we invite you into the sanctuary to share our Sunday service and our beloved community.

 

This is the power of gathering: it inspires us, delightfully, to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful: in a word, more alive. -Alice Waters

SPECIAL ASSISTANCE:

Parking spaces are available for those with disabilities. We are accessible to those with limited mobility, and our sanctuary is equipped with a loop system for hearing aid users. Sitting in the center section towards the front offers the best reception.

 
WHAT WE WEAR:

We have no dress code, with some in casual clothing and some more formal. Please come in what makes you comfortable.

Light a Candle

LIGHT—infuses, enlightens, inspires! During worship, we light candles as we share our joys and concerns.
