About our Worship

We gather together in spiritual community in order to support one another, and return our focus to what matters most in life. In a world of heartbreak and dehumanization, our congregations and communities call us to our better selves. We learn to live with more wisdom, more connection, and more compassion.

Our worship services are weekly reflections that weave together our own thoughts and experiences with music, beauty, poetry, and words that both comfort and challenge. Our programs for all ages inspire us, and awaken us to our capacities to make a difference in our own lives and in the world.

We are inspired not just by religious sources but by the people with whom we journey: the diverse and spirited Unitarian Universalists.

Music and Choir

Music is an important part of our worship services. It can speak to the soul deeply and powerfully, creating a time of beauty and reflection. Music can raise us up and carry us toward a vision of beloved community. Jo Ellen Miano, music director, leads us at our Steinway piano or in congregational circle singing throughout the service.

We generally frame worship services with opening and closing music, often drawn from Singing the Living Tradition and Singing the Journey. Our music is also selected to serve as a spiritual anchor throughout the service. Frequently, soloists participate in live singing. Our congregation engages in uplifting communal singing and even while muted on Zoom!

Circle Singing! | Second Tuesday of each month from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at 4 Palmer St. 

Stop by and join in an hour of singing together. Stay as long as you’d like. A mistake-free zone where you can stick with the melody or add harmonies. No music reading required! As Duke Ellington said, “If it sounds good, it is good!” Come and try it — it’s fun!

We now have *two cohorts* for the children: one for toddlers (approximately ages 2-3) and one for preschoolers (approximately ages 3-5). Activities are especially designed for the children and their siblings, parents, guardians, grandparents, aunts/uncles, adult friends.
