Our Mission . . .
We seek to nourish the spirit; to foster peace, justice, diversity, and understanding
in our community and the world; and to cherish and sustain the earth and the web
May 5. "In Our Own Voice."
Skip Hemschot and Jason Insalaco, volunteers with NAMI New Jersey's In Our Own Voice program, are eager to share their stories of hope and recovery from mental illness. In Our Own Voice combines a moving video with live personal
testimony to bring audiences the facts about living with and recovering from severe mental illnesses. The presenters answer audience questions about mental illness and
provide information about peer support programs and professional treatment.
May 12 And Justice for All. Following the tradition of linking Mothers Day to social justice, we join UU congregations to learn about reproductive justice, which, through initiatives such as Strong Families, promotes the right of all women to have children, not to have children, and to raise their children in safe and healthy environments. Led by Rev. Mary Tiebout.
May 19th : "Readings"/Annual BusinessMeeting. Members of the congregation are
encouraged to bring one reading on any topic or in any form to this meeting. Each
reading should be short, no longer than 3-4 minutes in duration. It can be something original by the reader or from another author. As appropriate, discussion will follow each reading.
May 26 . Up Notes. A time to remember some of the events of the year, in the world
and in our lives, the people we love, wisdom we have gained and the blessings of being
together in fellowship. New members will be welcomed today. Led by Rev. Mary Tiebout.
June 2. RE Celebration and Flower Communion. Our regular Fellowship year ends
with a celebration of our childrens religious education program, recognition of our Fellowship leaders and volunteers, and our traditional Flower Communion. Please bring a flower to add to our big beautiful bouquet. Led by Lynn Sodora and Rev. Mary Tiebout.
June 9. Fellowship Picnic. Our annual Fellowship picnic, the traditional wrap-up of our activities for the year, will be held from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm on Sunday, June 10 at Station Park in Sparta.
At the UUFSC, our services reflect the diversity of our members' interests and the spirit of the third and fourth principles of Unitarian Universalism listed in the
affirmation on this page. We are prepared to hear opinions with which we do not agree. We are prepared to hear ideas based on spiritual intuition or supernatural faith. We are prepared to hear the theories and provisional truths of today's physical, psychological, social, and political sciences. We try to maintain an ecumenical balance in our Sunday morning services. Our aim is to represent over time and through differing views the sincere beliefs and aspirations of all members of our congregation.
