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.

This Easter we’ll explore what it might mean to wake from the dead; to the wonder of life renewing itself, in the natural world and in the human heart. What is it that has the power to wake us up? To startle us? To open our eyes, our minds, our hearts to new ways of seeing and being in the world?
