This Sunday’s Virtual Service – Blessings on Your Journey

June 19 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Religious Services Committee


As we go from community to our own separate journey over the summer, whether they be far or near, we consider the journey, what it means, how to deepen it, and what we will bring back to the whole when we come together again in September. We will explore this theme through poetry; including a recitation by our own prize-winning poet reciter, Ava Beringer. This service will be broadcast from the sanctuary via zoom without an in person congregation.

This Sunday’s Virtual Service – Transcending the Binary

June 5 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Rev. Carol Strecker, Interim Minister


June is PRIDE month. We celebrate the many ways people express gender and sexuality in our culture, many of which transcend cultural norms, male and female. Now more then ever it seems important to understand the issues facing people who don’t fit neatly into the gender binary of male and female. Learning from each other and expanding our understanding of the full range of human experience is an important way Unitarian Universalists can honor the worth and dignity of all people. Finding a spiritual home where you feel seen in the fullness of your humanity is what being a Welcoming Congregation is really all about.

The Annual Meeting will be held

immediately following the service.

This Sunday’s Virtual Service – Remembering Well

May 29 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Rev. Carol Strecker, Interim Minister


Memorial Day ushers in the official beginning of summer but it was born of the need to remember well those Americans who died in the course of their military service. Memorial Day gives us the opportunity to mourn those losses as a nation. But there are other “national losses” we’re facing. How can we remember well those 1 million souls lost to the Corona Virus and the victims of gun violence that plagues our nation?  Memorial Day invites us to lament all of these “national losses,” honor the dead and advocate for peace.

This Sunday’s Virtual Service – “The Journey” A Bridging Service

May 22 Service at 10:30 AM on Zoom

Rev. Carol Strecker, Interim Minister

Join us in uplifting and celebrating the bridging of one of our youth, Abby Ruggles, as she sets off on a journey into college and young adulthood. In this service we will contemplate the thresholds of life and how we as members of a congregation can provide blessings, advice of direction but cannot make the journey itself for bridging youth. In this service we gift our support and encouragement to Abby and send her off with wind in her sails.

This Sunday’s Multi-Platform Service – Mayday, Mayday, Mayday !

May 1 Service at 10:30 AM in the Sanctuary and on Zoom

Rev. Carol Strecker, Interim Minister

Yes, it’s May! The days are longer and warmer now. In many UU congregations this is the time of year we begin to wrap things up for the more leisurely pace of summer. But the last couple of years have been anything but business as usual at NSUU. We’ve survived, even thrived in some ways during the pandemic but so much has changed – so much is changing. What’s next? That’s up to you, the congregation.

Mayday is an international distress signal that was adopted by the British because it sounds like the French m’aider, which means “help me.” It’s time for every person who cares about this congregation to respond to this distress call – to help answer some big questions: Who are we now? What are we here for? Who do we hope to become and what will it take to get there?

This service will provide some thought-provoking inspiration for a Congregational Conversation following the service at 11:30am. The Board needs to know what you want, what you’re willing to invest your time, treasure and talent in service to the future of NSUU.

Earth Day Celebration

Green Sanctuary Team and Guests

Join the Green Sanctuary Team and guests for our annual Earth Day Celebration. The seventh principle of Unitarian Universalism calls us to affirm and promote the interconnected web of all existence of which we are a part. There has never been a more important time to deepen our sense of connection with all that is and the reciprocity of our relationship with the Earth. The Earth will only take care of us if we take care of the Earth.
