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.
September's Theme is Vision.
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.
MOST RECENT WORSHIP SERVICE
"Yom Kippur" means "Day of Atonement." It is a day set aside to "afflict the soul," to seek forgiveness and atone for mistakes and misdeeds of the past year. There are times when all of us need to seek forgiveness and practice atonement. The service will investigate. We will also have an RE Teacher Dedication ceremony during the service, during which we will acknowledge and honor the commitment to our teachers of our children and youth.
