We are going to be taking a virtual field trip this Sunday to the First Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Hunterdon County and attend their Sunday service on Zoom. The service will begin at 10:30 at the Zoom link below. They know we are coming to visit, and it is always interesting to visit other UUs.
The sermon will be by the Rev. Seth Fisher and will be “The Power of the People”: As we continue to explore the October’s theme of power, and in light of an upcoming election, we’ll take some time to consider the power of the people.

WHAT ARE SUUF SERVICES LIKE?
Skylands UU is a lay-led congregation, meaning that members from the Fellowship manage all aspects of our organization, through volunteer committees and elected congregational boards. Lay members also design and lead the majority of Sunday Services, which follow a monthly theme. We also invite outside members of the community to occasionally lead services. During the fall and spring we generally have one Sunday each month that is a "Service Sunday", where we all work on buildings and grounds projects together rather than having a presentation.
Each service follows a similar format including chalice lighting, readings, music, a time for expression of Joys & Concerns, Offeratory, a children's story, closing words, and extinguishing the chalice. The content of the main presentation can be very different week to week so we encourage folks to come back a few times to get a feel for the full range of all we have to offer.
There are also classes for the children during many services, although there are also services designed to be multigenerational and include children.
