August 24 - Telling Tales: The Stories Which MVUUF's History Timeline Could Tell
Rev. Mary Moore and Members of the MVUUF Transition TeamAfter a congregation which is traveling through an interim period works on creating a History Timeline, oftentimes the Interim Minister and Transition Team members will share their thoughts about some of the things which the History Timeline shows. Join us on this morning when we'll be sharing with you discoveries and understandings as to what MVUUF people believe are some of the significant points along MVUUF's History Timeline.
August 31 - Are They Ready?

September 7 - From Lakes, Streams, Oceans and Faucets: A Celebration of Water--Multi-Generational Water Service
Rev. Mary Moore and Shannon Harper, Director of Religious Education
September 14 - Beyond Categorical Thinking
Jo Ann Dale and Michael TakadaWe all have an image of the ideal minister, often fitting a particular age, gender, physical ability, race, or sexual identity. With this image in mind, it can be difficult to consider ministers who don't match it. This service will explore these issues, and is followed by an important workshop that will help everyone in our congregation be part of the search.
September 21 - Marching in the Face of Climate Change
Rev. Mary MooreIn keeping with our UU "Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part," we'll focus on climate change, standing with the thousands of people who will be marching in New York to express their concern about climate change on this day.
Please bring a bell, chimes, gongs, or noise maker - cow bell, school bell, etc. - to ring as we will show our own concern about climate change by marching outside MVUUF for 350 seconds following the service.
September 28 - Service Trip To NOLA
Shannon Harper, Director of Religious Education and Erin Halpin, Tyler Clark, Max Santucci, Leo Santucci, Kevin Rawlins, and Bill RossIn July of 2014 we made congregational history when our Fellowship sent five youth and two adult advisors to New Orleans on our first ever Youth Service Trip.
