Some have suggested that a Sunday service is a journey or pilgrimage in which we are drawn out of our own concerns to join a community in exploration and to feel a renewed connection with the sacred in life. The service may be partly a time of reflection, partly an opportunity to experience a challenge, partly a time to mourn or celebrate, and partly a time to serve Life. At the end of the journey, the individual is alone again, but renewed and inspired to go out into the world.

Each week we gather to worship and be together on Sunday mornings.  Our services are typically geared towards adults.  Children and youth participate in Religious Education classes during worship. During the summer months we offer childcare for children five and under.

November's Theme is Memory

During the months of September - June, Cedar Lane has a monthly worship theme as determined by our Soul Matters programming.  Over 150 Unitarian Universalist congregations participate in this program. Sunday worship services and monthly Soul Matters small group ministry materials center on that month's theme as a way to provide a deeper connection to these important themes.

Thanksgiving is not simply about receiving the bounty of earth and the blessings of being; it is also about paying our mortgage to those who have gone before and investing in those who will follow. The services will include a child dedication ceremony. If you would like your child or grandchild dedicated during the service, please contact Sara Davidson (

"Remember to Rise"
November 25 AT 9AM and 11AM
Christin Green, Intern Minister

Bread provides us a rich (sometimes delicious) metaphor for life. We can resonate with the messiness of the mixing, the struggle of the kneading, the faith required in the waiting, the fire needed for the baking, and the restorative power of breaking bread together. In what ways do we remember (and forget) that "rising" is a part of our own formation?

February 3 AT 9AM and 11AM
Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray

We will welcome Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) President, Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray as guest preacher!  Service details to come.
