Sunday Services

We are in a period of transition working towards the selection of a new minister. Our Sunday Services are being conducted weekly at 10:30 a.m. While we are in transition, we will have a variety of guest preachers in our Sunday Services. To explore the speakers this month, please visit Upcoming Sunday Services.

Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our services may be offered virtually or multiplatform, which includes in person attendance or a virtual experience on Zoom or Facebook. The Sunday Service link will inform you of the options each week.

If you are new to our congregation and would like more information about us, please contact our office at info@uufh.org.

The UUFH has a strong tradition of lay-led ministry. Typically the minister presents two to three services a month. The Sunday Program Committee plans the remaining services, often including outside speakers and UUFH members. 

Upcoming sermons are listed in the Calendar. Service themes might include:

  • Finding meaning in one’s life
  • Learning from the wisdom and teachings of world leaders
  • Celebrating interconnectedness
  • Addressing ethical and social issues
  • GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender) recognition
  • Honoring UU heritage
  • Inspiring faith
  • Christmas, Hanukkah, Passover, Easter and other holidays
  • World events

A mix of seriousness, humor and craft creates a thought-provoking, warm and engaging service that varies week-to-week. There are some recurring elements, such as “Lighting the Chalice” and sharing “Joys and Concerns.”

 

Children are a special and important part of the UUFH congregational family. On most Sundays, children attend the first 20-25 minutes of service with their families and are invited to interact with a story or a personal experience before joining their Religious Education (Sunday school) classes. Several times each year, “inter-generational services” are celebrated in which the children participate in the entire service together with adults.

The UUFH Conductor, Jie Yi, leads music that is integral and meaningful to services, often but not always with the participation of the choir. Instrumentalists and vocalists perform in small groups or individually to enhance other services.

There’s no dress code at services. You are as likely to find sweaters and blue jeans as you are a shirt and tie or casual business attire. Please come and be comfortable.

Following the service, there is a social hour with coffee and snacks. This is an opportunity to talk with the minister and to meet members.

A table in the foyer holds literature on UUFH and Unitarian Universalism. Please ask questions and sign the UUFH mailing list.
