UUCM Mid-Week Message 6/16/21

During the summer months, the Minister’s Message will become the UUCM Mid-Week Message with inspiration provided by members of UUCM’s staff team. This week’s message is offered by Jennifer Swick, Director of Family Ministry.

Play is our worship theme for June. In this Mid-Week Message, Jennifer shares reflections on how the spiritual discipline of play has led to healing in her life. What are the rough edges of your history, personality or relationships that could be healed by the power of play?

Here are the links Jennifer references in her message – we hope you will contribute and enjoy!

Summer Online Collaborative Worship Series 2021

This summer, we are excited to join together with 7 other congregations throughout our MidAmerica region to share worship and community with one another. The creativity of online worship has allowed us to visit one another’s services from the comfort of our own homes and churches. In addition to enriching our summer, this collaboration will provide a well-deserved break for each congregation’s tech and worship volunteers and offer time to plan for the reopening to multi-platform worship in the Fall. Join us as we come together as Unitarian Universalists to share our search for truth and meaning, love and liberation!

LOGISTICS: All information and the Zoom link you will need to join each service will be in the Friday Update email newsletter (subscribe here, if you haven’t already). A UUCM staff member will be present at each online service and the tech support phone number is still available at 612-486-2705. 
PLEASE NOTE: Start times will alternate between 10:00 AM or 10:30 AM depending on the host congregation. The start time will be posted prominently, keep an eye out for it!

SCHEDULE (Please note start time). More services will be posted throughout the summer, check back often!
