Sunday Services

Sunday, September 6 – 11 a.m. – What’s Your Question? – The Rev. Lucy Bunch

What have you always wanted to ask about Unitarian Universalist theology? About UU faith or history? About the meaning of life? This Sunday is your opportunity when we join the Unitarian Universalist Society of Sacramento via Zoom. The Rev. Lucy Bunch will be addressing questions submitted beforehand by her congregation and ours.

Sunday, September 13 – 11 a.m. – Gathering of the Waters – Debi Cooper and Amy Day

Water has always symbolized a sacred container. It’s a place where we can bring the fullness of our individual experience and have it held inside the gracious wake of the larger communal pool. Traditionally, we have used this service as a way to come back and greet each other after our summer of travels and away time; however, in this time of Covid-19, we invite you to bring whatever is on your heart to share, and to re-affirm the power of beloved community to water the soul.

Sunday September 20 – 11 a.m. – On Claiming This Time for Renewal – Berti Welty

To be fully human means to interact in the stream of life with other beings during our life journey. To do that, we must learn and practice the art of being in community, while being true to ourselves. Now, during Covid-19, we need to learn new ways to stay connected and consciously work on maintaining our ties, and to remain true to our covenants with one another.

In 1989, members of this congregation wrote and adopted a covenant that addresses HUUF’s purpose and how we will be in relationship with one another. During this service we will be exploring ways we can practice this covenant in the current reality.

Note: “Covenantal Relationship” refers to a relationship of mutual commitment by individuals characterized by shared values, open-ended commitment, mutual trust, and concern for the welfare of the other party. The full covenant is on the Fellowship’s website,, under Beliefs.

Sunday, September 27 – 11 a.m. – Sheltering in Poems – Pat McCutcheon

A number of Fellowship writers will share their poems written during these pandemic months. Out of the interactions and works of the HUUF Friday Afternoon Poets, the idea arose for this year’s Poetry Service. For them, writing has been one way to cope with the Covid-19 blues, and they have invited several other Fellowship poets to share with them.
