Music Director Desi Long, who is retiring at the end of May, stepped away from the pulpit
after being honored and receiving gifts at our worship service on May 14. In brief remarks,
she said, “This feels like my memorial service – only better because I’m still alive!” More photos.



Sunday at UUCC – June 4, 2017

Worship Service at 10 a.m. Only

Down by the Riverside – Ellen Thomas, Peter Holmes, and Rev. Molly Housh Gordon

We’re taking church outdoors! Our main worship service on Sunday, June 4 will be down by the riverside at Katfish Katy’s Campground on the Katy Trail in Huntsdale (see map below). The 10 a.m. worship service at the campground will be followed by a potluck picnic – please bring food and drinks for the potluck and folding chairs if you want them. Also bring your own plates, cups and silverware. We will mainly be under the trees, like last year, but a sunhat might be a good idea. Read more. Email Peter Holmes or Patty Daus if you have questions.

For those who cannot or would prefer not join us at the campground, the same service content will be delivered at the church by Rev. Molly.

Both the riverside service and the one at church will be intergenerational. Children are invited and welcome to attend.

In case of heavy rain or storms, the main service will be moved to the church.

Other Programs and Activities

9:05 to 9:35 a.m. – Mindfulness Meditation – Canceled on June 4

Ordinarily Mindfulness Meditation takes place every Sunday, but it will not be held on June 4 because of the Down by the Riverside worship service.

10 a.m. – Children’s Religious Education – Lower Level

On June 4 there will be intergenerational worship services both at Katfish Katy’s Campground and at church. There will be no R.E. classes, and children are welcome and invited to attend the services.

Summer religious education classes will begin on June 11. Two classes will be offered:

Pre-K through 3rd Grade: “Spirit Play” curriculum (Montessori-inspired classroom).
3rd through 8th Grade: Workshops led by different church members on different fun topics from yoga to theater games to creating a video podcast.

There is an overlap in age grouping between the two summer classes, and parents can decide which program is most suitable for their children’s interests and maturity.
