Virtual Sunday services are a wonderful way to connect and engage from the comfort of home. Led by our new minister, Rev. Diana Smith, services frequently include creative socially-distanced components, such as a drive-through wather communion. Music is provided remotely from Maine by professional musician Dave Rowe, a multi-instrumentalist who makes creative use of online technology.
Story time for children and youth is held near the beginning of the service. Small group breakout discussions are available after services, and visitors have the option to join a discussion tailored for newcomers.
“I am new to UUS. I attended services two or three times, and then Covid hit. Every Sunday when I Zoom in I find a great deal of internal peace watching and breathing with the virtual services. It feels so good for Rev. Diana to reach out with her empathy of being isolated for so long. I have found the services to be like a safe harbor in a storm, giving me hope for peace, equality, and love. I also love the music!”– Jan Jacobson
