Sunday July 21, 2024 – Raising Redeemers: the joys and challenges of intergenerational ministry

It is our faith that each child born is one more redeemer. We speak these words with each child dedication and every Christmas Eve. But what do they mean? If our faith tell us that each child is born a source of salvation rather than in need of salvation, how does this shape our relationship with our children and youth? Join worship leaders Katrinca Ford, Sarah Watts and musician Susan Keiter as we explore the joys and possibilities of intergenerational church community.

There are two ways to attend this worship service:

  • In person: Worship service starts at 10:20 AM. We strongly recommend that you wear a mask while in the building. All are invited to stay after worship for Coffee Hour in Wendte Hall.
  • Via Zoom: Click here to join us online for the service and Virtual Coffee Hour. Closed captions will be provided. The first part consists of watching the live stream, and the second part continues our practice of online Coffee Hour. The virtual “doors” open at 10 AM and music commences at 10:20 AM.

Checking out First Unitarian Oakland?

If you’re joining us for the first time, we would like to extend a full welcome!  Please answer a few questions on our online Newcomer Connection Card.  When at church on Sunday, you can also ask questions and get help at the Greeting Table on the patio before the service.

On most Sundays right after the service, we have a quick Newcomer Welcome in the sanctuary — meet up with a church member in front by the pulpit, for a quick introduction to the church and answers to your questions — then join us in Wendte Hall for Coffee Hour.  If you attend via Zoom, you can stay in the Zoom session after the service for informal discussion in our Virtual Coffee Hour.

We look forward to you joining us for worship service each week! For more information, check out About Worship.
