Bridging 2018

Each year in the spring we join with Unitarian Universalist congregations all across our country to honor our graduating high school seniors in a Bridging Ceremony. We take time to celebrate these young people’s accomplishments, to hear from them about their growing up years at First Unitarian, and to symbolically create a bridge which they will cross. The Band “Something and Maybe Everything” will offer music. This is a Multigenerational Service.

A Festival of Music!

Join us for a festival of music, poetry and reflections on the impact of music on spirituality and the human condition. Joyful Noise will open the service with their final performance until the autumn and this will be the Crescendo Choir final service of the year! Please join our talented Church Musicians Stefan Schneider and Renee Witon and Rev. Jeremiah Kalendae, Rev. Sheri Prud’homme, and Worship Associate Jim Briggs for this special service.  New members will also be welcomed into the church during our Ingathering Ceremony. There will be Children’s Chapel.

Easter Sunday Celebration!

All are invited to our annual Easter celebration for all ages. We will tell the Easter story and offer one another a bread and juice communion in Unitarian Universalist fashion. The service will open with a parade of Easter bonnets and festive ties, so wear your Easter finery! Children are invited to hunt for eggs after the service. Joyful Noise and Crescendo Choir will sing.
This is a Multigenerational Service.

Assume Best Intentions

In the middle of our congregational covenant is the phrase, “assume best intentions.” What does it really mean? How does it help us live out our UU values in community? How far beyond our walls does it extend? Join Rev. Sheri as she takes up the topic Corliss Smith gave to her after being the highest bidder at last year’s auction. Crescendo Choir will sing as will Joyful Noise!  

This is a Time For All Ages Service.

Lunar New Year Celebration!

Join us for a service and ritual honoring the Lunar New Year, one of the most celebrated holidays in the world. We will reflect together on some of the common themes of the holiday as it is celebrated in our Bay Area communities: family togetherness, unity, wholeness, and renewal. Join Daisy Quan, Wes Radez, Claudine Tong, the Chancel Choir and Joyful Noise for this Multigenerational Service.
