About Our Services
Starr King Unitarian Universalist Sunday Services follow a traditional Unitarian Universalist structure. All services begin at 9:30 a.m. and last about an hour. Religious Education for children is held simultaneously. There is a “family corner” with children’s toys for children who would like to stay in the Service with their parents. Nursery care is also provided. Scroll down to see the schedule of services for the month.
Elements of a typical morning worship service usually include:
- Words of welcome
- Lighting a flaming chalice, the symbol of our faith
- A multigenerational segment, such as a “The Story”
- Music, both instrumental and vocal and in a variety of styles
- A time for lifting up the joys and concerns of the congregation
- A meditation or prayer
- Readings—ancient or contemporary
- A sermon given by a professional minister, a guest speaker, or a member of the congregation
- An offering, collecting financial donations for the congregation or for justice work in the community.
Summer is upon us, and we want to bring you the following schedule of Summer Services as they now stand. Please confirm the time change for our first week together as we are live streaming the worship from GA!
