Where Do We Come From?
Worship Committee

What each of us brings to this church is amazing. How we change one another’s lives for the better is profound. The impact of a beloved community over time is precious. In this service, coordinated by the Worship Committee, the first line of the hymn Where Do We Come From will serve as a focus for exploration? Reflecting on decades of experience and memories, Paul Belden and Rhoda Whitney will speak to the importance of this beloved community and its impact on their lives. We hope this service will inspire us all to reach out for new connections, to nurture existing connections, and to consider how we change one another’s lives for the better.

All Souls 
Rev. Jeannie Shero

This service will include Slideshow of Remembrance as we remember those we love who are no longer with us. If you wish any of your departed loved ones to be included, please send the person’s name, dates of life, and an image in an email to communications@firstuniversalist.org by November 1. Please also include your name and the names of any who join you in the remembrance, such as members of your immediate family. Each year, we build the slideshow afresh, and include only those names submitted that year. During the service on November 6, all will be welcome to write names and remembrances in the Book of Life. Plan now to join us for a meaningful service honoring All Souls.
