SUMMER SERVICES 
“A Summer of Music” Appreciation of music in many forms and expression.
This summer we will explore some of the aspects of music’s universal spirituality. People often say the “music is the thing that gets me through.”  Hopefully, we will experience and learn more about music’s inclusive and mood affirming nature, how musical expression supports us from solace to celebration.
*Special Note: We will not be offering coffee hour after the summer services.  Everyone is welcome to bring their own beverage and stay to chat. Hope to see you there!

CHURCH PICNIC SUNDAY, AUGUST 14TH
The 2022 Picnic will be held Sunday August 14th at Ken Beers Bicentennial Park off Mead Avenue. We will gather at 11:00am and continue our summer theme of music appreciation led by our Music Director, Aimee Reash. This is a BYOE (bring your own everything) event. Alcohol is prohibited at this event. Please contact the office if you have any questions.

SHARE-THE-PLATE
Every month we share our offerings with a community group whose mission is consonant with ours. This month we have selected the UUJusticePA. UUJusticePA educates and communicates with  congregations and partners to inspire action. They promote their values to policy makers to advance just legislation. They advocate for fairness and transparency in the democratic process.

INSPIRATION OF THE WEEK

It is a grave error to assume that ice cream consumption requires hot weather.
