The Worship Theme for June is: Renewal

June 2 – “Flower Communion”   Join us for a special all-ages worship service celebrating our beloved UU tradition of the Flower Communion. Just as no two flowers are alike, so no two people are alike, yet each has something beautiful to share. Together, different flowers create a lovely bouquet symbolizing our unique UUCV family. Bring a flower for the ceremony; you’ll be invited to take a different flower home. By exchanging flowers we show our commitment to work together in Beloved Community. Lynn Sodora leads the service with worship associates from our teens and yuuth. 

June 9 – “In Defense of Pancake Communion”  A new adventure awaits us as we join for music and discussion in our dining hall, where we will explore the idea of what deems a place/time “holy”, while sharing a brunch meal together. Bring your favorite brunch dish to share. Pancakes will be provided [gluten free pancakes will be available]. Rev. Chris Kapp leads the service.

June 16 – “Love Meets the Dragons: Becoming and Being a Unitarian Universalists Minister”  How does one become an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister? How can ministry be sustained and both ministers and congregations thrive? Rev. Dr. Kathy Ellis leads the service with worship associate Melissa Mattson.

June 23 – “Light, Love, and Connection: Tending the Garden of our Soul”   As we celebrate the Summer Solstice and the beauty of thriving plant life all around us, let’s assess our role as gardener of our inner life. Cheryl Parsons leads the service.


June 30 – “Our Odyssey”  Come celebrate with us and hear UUCV history and reflections from congregates as to why UUCV is where they call home. Brent Dickerson leads the service.
