UUCNC invites community to services

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua will hold their first formal service of the new congregational year on Sept. 8 at 11 a.m.

The Rev. Terry Kime will explore spiritual teachings and practices about what it might mean to connect with, and expand, our sense of kinship. This service will also include the annual water ceremony. In the water ceremony, folks are invited to add water they have brought from places of respite and adventure during the summer (like their backyard, a trip to visit loved ones, Lake Erie or Ontario) into a common bowl as we celebrate joining together in spiritual community.

Registration for all Religious Exploration classes will be held before and after the service. UUCNC offers professional nursery care for those under the age of 5. Classes are also offered for children in grades K-5 and 6-8.

This is an intergenerational service; Religious Exploration Classes will begin the following Sunday. Childcare for those less than five years of age will be provided.

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua is a liberal religious community devoted to promoting individual spiritual development, working toward peace, liberty and justice in the immediate and global communities, and providing companionship on life’s sacred journey. Worship services are held each Sunday at 11 a.m. in the Grange Hall, 58 W. Main St. Fredonia.
