This Sunday, May 16, at 10 AM we are going to take advantage of the good weather this Sunday and meet at Schooley's Mt. park for a walk/hike. We will meet at 10 AM at the upper parking lot closer to the pavilion: Map
There are various paths of different distances and different difficulty (smooth vs rough) people can go on depending on preferences.
All are welcome!
If you are not on our distribution list and would like to be, please contact us.
April - Story
5/2/21 - Service Sunday
We are going to come together at 10 AM to have a "Service Sunday". We will work on cleaning up the SUUF yard - mowing, trimming, planting, weeding, mulching. Time to beautify the grounds!
Some gloves and tools are available, but often helpful to bring your own, as well.
5/9/21 - Flower Communion
We will gather in-person, outdoors at Fellowship for our annual Flower Communion. Please bring a flower(s) to contribute to a communal vase that will be a central part of the program. The flowers can come from anywhere: your yard, a garden, etc. Even though we'll be outside, please follow physical distancing guidelines and continue to wear masks.
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.
