Upcoming Services & Events

Our worship services are diverse in nature, utilizing lay members of our congregation, guest speakers from the greater community and occasional visiting Unitarian Universalist ministers and leaders. Community dialogue sometimes follows each speaker, as well as coffee and informal conversation.

Each year, we hold a special Christmas and New years service. A flower communion is held each spring and a water communion each fall. Pagan / Earth-centered services are also held a few times a year. Many of our services feature talented professional musicians, instrumental or vocal, including members of the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra. The Good News Jazz Band visits us annually, as well.

SUNDAY SERVICES
10:30 am

Date: September 16                
Title: Let Your Life Speak
Service Leader: Rob van Wyck
Speaker: Rev. Suzanne Wasilczuk
A Vocation.  An avocation.  One’s life’s work.  Just a job.  A life-long hobby.  Frederick Buechner suggests that our vocation – what it is we are called to do – is, ideally, at the spot where our own deep gladness meets the world’s deep hunger.  To what have we – individually, and as a congregation – been called?  Where might we find our deep gladness?

Date: September 23
Title: 
Building Beloved Community
Service Leader:
David Belrose
Speaker: Joan Carolyn – Canadian Unitarian Council
Building community together takes commitment, energy, tenaciousness and courage. The potential ripple effect rewards of this relationship building enterprise carry the capacity to far outweigh our input. Welcome to a morning celebrating the relationship networks within our fellowship, within our Canadian UU Family and within the wider community.

Date: September 30
Title: Digging Into Reconciliation: 
What Should We Do About Archaeology?Service Leader: David Belrose
Speaker: Andrew Hinshelwood
One path forward in reconciliation lies in bringing Indigenous voices into archaeology, and holding space for First Nations to contribute or co-produce narratives about the past based on archaeological site information, as well as other traditional sources.
