Join Us for a Service

Sunday June 21
Yes Yes Yes – Flower Communion Celebration
We will close out the church year with the Czech Unitarian ritual of flower communion. Each person—adult and child—is asked to bring a flower to church this morning. The flower symbolizes the gifts each of us contributes to our community. At the end of the service, each of us will be offered a different flower, symbolizing the gifts we receive from the community.
Our offering will be given to ScituateFACTS.
Thursday July 2    Summer Worship Begins!
During the months of July and August, instead of holding services on Sundays, we will gather every Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. for a brief multigenerational worship celebration, followed by a potluck supper at 7 p.m. The services will explore the theme of “Journeys: Inner and Outer” from a variety of metaphors and views.

Yoga at the Church
Leslie Payne, C.Y.T., will be using our space to offer a weekly “Gentle Power” yoga class. Classes will cost $10 per week. The class begins with gentle stretching and movements gradually building up to standing postures, using breath and your own power. Every class ends in a meditative cooldown. Modifications will be given as needed. Students should wear comfortable clothes, and bring a mat and water. All ages and abilities are welcome, and the class is open to the public. If you need more information, contact Leslie Payne at (617) 653-9428 or lespay@msn.com
