September 11, Ingathering Sunday: Water Ceremony

We return from the summer break and begin the 2022-2023 church year with our annual Ingathering Sunday and Water Ceremony. We will share our waters, honoring our sacred connections to one another and our planet and reminding ourselves that we belong to an interdependent community of love and care.

The building will be fully open with our new ventilation system complete and operational. Masks are optional. Covid-19 vaccination and boosters are strongly encouraged.

You can also watch the service online through our YouTube live stream. This is not a Zoom meeting, and the service will not be available on Facebook. Instead, go to the UCM YouTube channel at 10am to watch the service online. The link is available from the UCM homepage at

This is an all ages service. Nursery care will be available beginning at 9:45am. Coffee hour in the vestry (and outdoors, weather permitting) will follow the service.
