For the last couple of years, we have been experimenting with monthly ministry themes. The goal is to intentionally design and shape our ministry journey. Themed ministry is a tool that adds vitality to our journey by aligning our conversation across all the different ministries in the church. This allows us to essentially “travel together” as a community of seekers, sharpening our relationship to one another and to life through common reflection. For example, our teachers are encouraged to weave the same monthly concept into their classroom lessons that the adults are hearing from the pulpit in worship. The new Chalice Circles (small group ministry) will be a chance to explore these ideas in-depth with adult peers. Our “Mindful Meetings” will begin all of our team meetings with the same monthly focus to connect and energize us before we enter into our particular church work. We believe that thematic ministry can be spiritually deepening, and that we could even have more fun, more ease, and more connection among us as we explore them! What could be better?
We Look Forward to Seeing You at Worship!
May Worship Theme:
“We have no hope of solving our problems without harnessing the diversity, the energy, and the creativity of all our people.”
–Roger Wilkins, African-American civil rights leader, professor of history, and journalist
May 6, 10am — Covenant = Co-creativity
Where did we get the silly idea that artists and inventors are isolated, independent geniuses? When it comes to myths about creativity, that one tops the list. We need to remind each other that there is no such thing as a “person of creativity,” only “people of creativity.” Come explore what it takes to be a community of creativity. Rev J speaks.
May 13, 10am — Creative Moms
What are all the ways that mothers create? What if mothers are the source of all creativity? What if Godde is a Mother instead of “God the Father?” And, then there is “Mother” Earth who supports all of life. Mothers harbor children. Some mothers are artists in the traditional understanding of creativity. And, some mothers create a path to live as authentically as possible in the midst of raising a family. Come explore! Rev J speaks.
May 20, 10am — Creating Columbine UU: A Vision of “Family” Beyond Our Walls
Many people know that Columbine Unitarian Universalist Church has a newly articulated vision, but many people do not know how it came about and the conversation that went into creating it. If only 25 of us were part of that process, how do the rest of us take responsibility for owning that vision and taking it out into the world? Rev J speaks.
May 27, 10am — Honor Thy Service
Come enjoy worship with Rev Julia as we remember the origins of Memorial Day and remember the men and women who have died serving the US Armed Forces. Please bring a picture or any artifact honoring ANY relative that has died in the last year for any reason.
Please note: Periodically during the year, we intentionally invite children to join our adult service so they can experience the fullness of UU worship life. This does not mean that this service is geared toward the children as an all ages service, but we welcome them into our service to worship with their adults.
