Rage, Resilience, and Hope!

If you’re joining us for the first time, we would like to extend a full welcome! Please answer a few questions on our Guest Connection Card. * * *

In the midst of a pandemic, fires and smoke, civil unrest, and police violence against Black and Brown people, we have found ourselves challenged in ways we never have been. But even in unprecedented chaos, we have the capacity for Resilience and Hope. Please join us for an inspiring service! Worship team leaders are Janet McFarland, Amy Carlson, Corless Smith, Bev Smrha, Claudine Tong, and Micky Duxbury.

You will need a Zoom link to join and can request it by sending an email to yesplease@uuoakland.org with SUNDAY WORSHIP ZOOM in the subject line. A recording of the worship service will be made and posted on First Unitarian Church of Oakland’s YouTube Channel and Facebook page. If you want to talk about being recorded, please reach out to Pastor Theresa.
