Easter Sunday Service

One of our favorite authors at UCH- Anne Lamott- writes, "We could cope- the world could cope- with a Jesus who ultimately remains a wonderful idea inside his disciples' minds and hearts. But the world has more trouble with a Jesus who rises up comes out of the tomb and launches God's new creation right in the middle of the old one!"  Join us as we join Mary outside the tomb to encounter the Risen Christ and launch "God's new creation right in the middle of the old one!"  The Choir will be lifting us up, we will share Holy Communion, and the Care Team will be offering stations for Easter blessings and prayer. We look forward to seeing you for this morning of Resurrection, Celebration, and Hope! 

- Rev. Jeanne  


P.S. Don't forget to bring your flowers for our Easter flower cross!

Healing Circle

The UCH Healing Circle is a group people who gather together in our sanctuary one evening a month January through November to direct God’s healing energy (Love) to those whose names are entered into the Circle.  A breath centered meditation is used to calm, relax, and center ourselves in preparation for this directed healing practice.  The Healing Circle is open to anyone; the only requirement is being open to the possibilities that God has available to us.

Soothing Sanctuary

Please join us each month in taking time to step away from the chaos of every day and just be in an atmosphere of light music and quiet time. This is a non directed service where each participant prays, reflects, listens, breathes and rests in the presence of that which is holy for them. All are invited, be you Christian, Jew, Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, unaffiliated, and non-believer to pray or just be in your own way. You may come and go as you please. We begin with music and end when the music stops. All are welcome.

Palm Sunday Service

This Sunday we arrive in Jerusalem to the waving of Palms and shouts of Hosanna! If I were Jesus, I would want to stop here and stay at the party. But that isn't Jesus. And that is not what he/we are called to do (although a lot of Christians try). Jesus intentionally  chooses to move forward into Holy Week because he has prepared himself for what he has to do- or as Jan Richardson puts it "to become to fullness of [who he] is. How do we prepare? How do we make "wise choices" (Margaret Silf) that lead us to authenticity, and into our calling to "become the fullness of who we are." (Even when that calling takes us "through the valley of the shadow of death." Join us for our Palm Sunday Celebration as we prepare ourselves (intentionally) to enter into Holy week. -Rev. Jeanne

Sunday Service

This Sunday, we continue our Lenten conversation about making "Wise Choices."  by visiting the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well in Sychar. This story is full of odd choices. Jews normally went around Samaria when traveling because Jews and Samaritans were enemies. Jesus chooses to go right through the middle? Jewish Rabbis would not normally be talking to Samaritan women. And yet She and Jesus have the longest and most profound conversations in the Christian Gospels? Women in this locale normally gathered water at desert wells in the morning or evening when the sun was not blazing. But this woman is at the well at noon?  What has caused them to choose these things? Join us as we talk about making wise choices, and choosing the road less traveled.  I look forward to continuing our Lenten Journey together. -Rev. Jeanne
