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.

May 5 “Shamanic Journeying: A Way of Connecting” Mikky Baloy

Shamanic journeys have been undertaken by healers and spiritual practitioners from around the world for thousands of years as a way to access wisdom and perspective and connect more deeply with Nature.

After a brief opening talk by guest minister, Mikki Baloy, be guided in a journey and discover the insight that awaits you.

- Experience an ancient form of meditation, guided by the beat of a medicine drum.

- Encounter the "non-ordinary" reality of a journey.

- Receive guidance and insight from your connection to Nature.

May 12 “We Are All Birthing Something” The Rev. Jennifer Kelleher

On this mother’s day, our worship will recognize that each person, mothers and non-mothers/parent and non-parent, nurtures and embodies creation in our lifetimes. Join us for this service of reflection, commemoration and connection.

May 19 “Welcoming People With Mental Illness” The Rev. Rosemarie Newberry

Some congregations have a hard time welcoming people with mental illness. Our faith calls us to learn about welcoming all people, no matter their health. Behavioral covenants are one tool that some congregations use to set some boundaries. Setting boundaries provides safety, but doesn’t open our hearts to welcoming people that have coping issues and still can benefit from a spiritual and religious home.

May 26 “Sometimes Justice Work is Bootstrapping out of a Crab Trap” Jake Hearen

Recognizing progress in justice work can be a complicated endeavor. Worse yet, there are those who can recognize progress and still decide to intentionally mislead us even though they will also benefit from the work that we do. How do we overcome when support is lacking or even absent along our journey?
