What to Expect in Worship
We gather to find meaning and live more deeply. Our Sunday programs create connections within, among, and beyond us, calling us to our better selves, calling us to live with wisdom and compassion.
Unitarian Universalist worship styles vary by congregation, and even within congregations. The South Coast Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is lay-led. Dr. Ruth Miller joins us usually on the first Sunday of the month to help us explore some of the mysteries. Elements of a typical Unitarian Universalist Sunday morning program with us include:
- Words of welcome
- Lighting the flaming chalice, the symbol of our faith
- Sharing our joys and concerns
- A program led by a SCUUF member or friend, a guest speaker, or a visiting minister
From time to time, our programs incorporate holiday celebrations that may include sharing a potluck meal together, and Solstice and Equinox observances. These types of programs are usually held off-site and are announced in advance in our newsletter and our Sunday program guide.
