Sunday Services

New Year’s Day – 11:00 a.m. – Building a Valued Centered Life in 2023

Berti Welty will lead this informal hybrid service at the Fellowship. The first Sunday in January traditionally is a gathering to discuss possibilities for the year ahead while participants sip cider. While the year’s possibilities are endless, the focus of this service will be on clarifying one’s values as a way to center one’s self in making decisions about 2023. Annette will surprise us with a diversity of music accompanied by Linda Holland on flute.

If coming to the in-person gathering, please plan to remain masked while not actually sipping cider. If you are sick – please stay home. Following the service, hot spiced cider will be served and we’ll get a chance to sample the various finger foods that participants bring. If able, bring simple finger food to share.

Sunday, January 8 – 11:00 a.m. – Tell Me a Story

Join us for this all ages service to explore the stories that have helped shape and guide us. Facilitated by Amy Day, we’ll revisit well-loved favorites, and invite in new narratives and tales to delight and inspire. You’re invited to bring a beloved book to share, swap or donate as part of this interactive experience.

Sunday, January 15 – 11:00 a.m. – Mystical Stories and Songs – Rabbi Naomi Steinberg

Rabbi Naomi will share original tales from the Jewish tradition to uplift the spirit and guide us on our journeys. We will sing beautiful songs with traditional melodies from Spain, Eastern Europe and the Middle East – rich sources of love, strength, and wisdom to take in and share. She will be joining us at the Fellowship for this hybrid service. Bonnie MacGregor will serve as worship coordinator.

Sunday, January 22 – 11:00 a.m. – Engaging the Dharma Within and Without

The KDK Arcata Buddhist Group will host Bay Area guest speaker and teacher, Tibetan Buddhist Lama Lodu Rinpoche. Lama Rinpoche will direct a teaching on how we effectively follow our chosen spiritual path while remaining effective advocates and change-makers in the cause for social justice. Please note: this service will follow a different format than many of our typical HUUF Sunday services, as the event will be solely hosted by our visitors. Childcare will be provided.

Sunday, January 29 – 11:00 a.m. – The Great Undoing: No Hurry, No Worry – Rev. Anthony Mtuaswa Johnson

Rev. Anthony will explore finding the wisdom in all of us as we create our future. He will be joining us at the Fellowship for this hybrid service which will be facilitated by Bonnie MacGregor.
