Words by Unitarian Unversalist minister Rev Brugnola
What to Expect at our Sunday Services
Rev. Jim Macomber, 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.

July 29 Brenda Hantman Know Yourself" - Part 1
If you want to become happy, healthy, at peace with yourself, fulfill your life truly, be in harmony with others and the world, you must start by knowing who you are actually. Human consciousness consists of three levels, "higher self," "lower self" and "mask self." Deeply knowing these three aspects of ourselves keeps us real, grounded and effective in the world.
