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.

Title: Celtic Spirituality
Service Leader: Hanusia Tkaczyk
Today we celebrate this unique blend of the pagan worldview and Christianity as practiced in Ireland prior to the enforcement of Rome's rule in the 6th century. Rooted in the wonder of the natural world, it is gentle, generous and poetic. Music of Marianne Wahl's Celtic harp will round out the service.

Title: Widening the Circle - Building Bridges
Service Leaders: Rev. Rob Smith and David Belrose
What are the differences in our congregations and what do we have in common? This is a chance to explore our common values and shared sense of community. Let us share music, service, and coffee communion together.

Title: Holiness in Forest
