Upcoming Services

 

UUCD’s minister, lay leaders, and outstanding guest ministers from throughout our UU district lead our Sunday services. With this variety of services, we believe you will enjoy varying perspectives and stimulating sermons.

Sunday services begin at 10 am

at Congregation Beth Shalom, 340 N. Queen St., Dover, DE

Congregation Beth Sholom is a Kosher facility.  Please do not bring outside food or drink into the building.  We serve coffee, tea, a children’s cold beverage, plus Kosher snacks after service.  Please join us for this time of hospitality and conversation.

We are cancelling services, including all meetings after worship.  We will not schedule future services or meetings until more is known about how we can best respond to the COVID-19 health crisis.  Click here for the latest update

We are going to try our first UUCD Virtual Worship service via Zoom on Sunday, April 5th at our normal 10:00 am time.

Until then, we invite you to make time on Sunday morning for an alternative form of worship. Specifically, we suggest you watch the video of the Opening Worship from the Unitarian Universalist Association 2019 General Assembly.  Not only will this provide you with a good experience, it will give you a taste of our GA.  You may wish to attend this year since it is so close to us (relatively) in Providence, RI.

We also encourage you to attend a UU Virtual Streaming Worship Service on Sundays. We recommend one or more of the following:

 

Previously scheduled services for March

March 1

Women’s History Month Celebration – Ricky Shehorn

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Ricky Shehorn will be speaking about the role of female aviators during WW II. A little known fact is that some of the WAFS were stationed at what is now the Wilmington Airport. These ladies’ courage, fortitude, and persistence in the face of systemic discrimination is an inspiration that is still relevant today.

March 8

International Women’s Day: Celebrating the Divine Feminine – Rev. Kharma

As we celebrate with women around the world, let’s pause to look at the attributes of feminity that have been considered Divine in various times and cultures. This applies not only to women, of course, but will honor the gifts, persistence, and resistance of all who nurture the feminine, personally and globally.

March 15 – Cancelled

Proposed End of Life Options in the State of DE – Paul Baumbach
 
“Representative Paul Baumbach will join our congregation to discuss proposed legislation in the Delaware General Assembly.  Rep. Baumbach is a member of UUFN and is the main sponsor of legislation which speaks directly to the principles and values of Unitarian Universalism.  He will underscore his remarks with video statements from those who have been directly affected by this type of legislation in other states.  Rep. Baumbach will be available after the service for those who are interested in a small group discussion of the topic.
 

March 22 – Cancelled

Life, Love and Lots of Laughs (because let’s face it, alliteration is funny) – John Wright
 
Life is all about improvisation. There’s almost never a script. For 12 years, Rev. Wright was an actor in Otter Productions, a comedy improv group.  In this service, he’ll reflect on his time with them and how that experience informs his ministry.
 

March 29 – Cancelled

Who We Are and Why We Give – Rev. Kharma
 
We will be revealing our new 20/20 Vision Statement, describing who UUCD is and wants to be … don’t miss it.  We will also connect the dots by discussing why we invest in that vision with our generous giving.
