Sunday Mornings at UUFGC

Our services are held from 10:45 to noon on Sundays from late August to mid June.

Typically the children remain in the service for about the first 20 minutes which usually includes opening words, some singing, an opportunity for expression of personal joys and sorrows, and often a "story for all ages". The children may then go to classrooms for religious education, and the adults will have an opportunity to hear a sermon, usually on a topic of spirituality and/or social justice. As time permits it is our practice to have a few minutes for discussion or shared thoughts in response to the sermon before we close with a song. Some Sundays may diverge from this format, especially our inter-generational services (about 6 a year) which are designed to include children for the full service. Children are often active participants in these services.

For parents of infants and toddlers who become restless, we offer a room adjoining the sanctuary which affords both visual and audio access to the service.

Dress at our church is always eclectic and informal.
