What to Expect at our Sunday Services
The Rev Rosemarie Newberry our half-time UU minister, speaks to us twice each month. We hear from a great and interesting variety of sources on other Sundays.
Information about any particular Sunday Service can be found Facebook Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Queens
Meetup UUniquely Queens
Services begin at 11:00am
Greeters will welcome you to our service each Sunday.
Music is integral to the service. We typically sing at least three hymns. There is also a musical transition at the beginning of the service. Guest musicians appear as well, with guitars,violins and other instruments that enhance our Services as only beautiful music can.
Most Sunday Services also include chalice lighting, welcoming words, a time for personal sharing, meditation, and the talk or sermon. The service usually ends by 12:00.
Orders of Service brochures and hymnals are located on a table at the back of the sanctuary.
Social Hour follows each service. Please join us for coffee and more conversation on the lower level. Here you can get a glimpse of the various activities of our congregation, and most importantly, you can get to know our congregants.
Dress is casual or dressy – your choice. Like our faith, it is your personal decision.
Our services during the summer are more casual than services earlier in the congregational year. We meet in our primary fellowship area (in the basement, we call it the Studio) rather than the Sanctuary (which is not air conditioned), we usually sit in a circle, and discussion/sharing is usually a significant part of the hour.
**Movement, Sound and Stillness Brenda Hartman**
**Sunday July 14th 11:00am**
Activate your body/mind connection with these gentle, organic movements and sounds that anyone can do. You can do them lying down, sitting or standing. Bring a yoga mat or large towel if you would like to do them lying down.
**Me Versus Us: Cultural Evolution for a New and Loving World Wendy Moscow**
**Sunday July 21st 11:00am**
Back in 1967, when we were striving toward an era of peace and compassion, the folk-rock group The Youngbloods were urging us to "Get Together." This year, the World Science Festival was positively swarming (pun intended) with new evidence about how forming connections and living in caring community makes us happy, gives us purpose, redirects our moral compass, and, ultimately, might even save us. We'll draw upon evolutionary theory, psychology, animal behavior and our own (and others') stories to make the case for cooperation and commitment. We'll also sing, move, discuss and share together in an informal, non-judgmental setting. Please join us!
