Ground Hog Day
Groundhog Day. Did you see the movie in the 90’s? Bill Murry was tortured by having to live the same day over and over again. In the end though, he was able to turn his circumstance into opportunity. He perfected his day, and made the most out of it. What if we lived each day as if it were practice for improving ourselves for the rest of our lives? Come hear about it from someone talented enough to preach and play for this service, as Roger Corman is our guest speaker.
SERVICE LEADERS: Rev. Bonnie Dlott and Era Capone

We Belong Together
Belonging is a basic human need. We identify ourselves by who we belong with, as members of families, residents of town or cities, and members of political parties, churches, and possibly baseball teams. At the service today, we will explore what “belonging” to a religious community can mean, explicitly and implicitly, and consider why the experience of “belonging” can be transformative in some cases, and meaningless in others.
SERVICE LEADERS: Rev. Julie Brock and Era Capone

Honoring Our Ancestors: Samhain, All Saint’s Day, All Hallow’s Eve,
Dias de los Muertos
Many cultures recognize that this is the time of the year when the world feels a bit spooky. People say the veil between the worlds grows thin and we can connect with loved ones that have moved on from this life. Today we honor our loved ones past. Please bring a memento of one of your ancestors, as we build an altar to honor them.
