The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua announces that the Reverend Theresa Kime will speak on Sunday. Her sermon, "Faith-Filled Beginnings" explores the UU liberal, progressive faith tradition, which is filled with beginnings that require conviction and trust. Kime will ask what it is that the UUCNC community has faith in and how might that inform members' congregational year. Kime will also lead a dedication to support the new executive board as they enter their year of leadership.
Continuing the practice started last year, UUCNC will share the plate on the fourth Sunday of each month with an organization that works in support of UU principles. This month the executive board has selected the Red Cross and its relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Irene and flooding. Half of the collection, after pledges, will go to the Red Cross.
During the service, Religious Exploration classes will be held for children grades K-4. Childcare for those less than 5 years of age will also be provided.
The UUCNC is a liberal religious community devoted to promoting individual spiritual development, working toward peace, liberty and justice in the immediate and global communities, and providing companionship on life's sacred journey. Worship services are held each Sunday at 11 a.m. in the Grange Hall, 58 W. Main St., Fredonia. Call 679-7944 or visit www.uucnc.org.
