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.

You can watch several sermons by Rev. Chute, our Minister Emeritus, on our Video Archive page.

Sunday services begin at 10 am

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


In the summer, we offer scaled-back and pared-down services. We enjoy being in community and worshiping together, but we also recognize the need to give ourselves a break from the hard work that goes into each and every formal service we do. Summer services are a time to enjoy each other’s company in a more relaxed setting. Each Sunday, one person volunteers to open the doors, light the chalice, and guide discussion or another activity of their choosing.  If you would like to volunteer, or have any questions, please talk to Laura Parks.
