Worship » Monthly Spiritual Themes

UUC’s worship programs and religious education share monthly spiritual themes throughout the year to connect the messages of worship and learning to create an integrated and multi-generational experience for the congregation.

Focusing on one spiritual theme a month allows us to go deeper into the topic and for all ages to be discussing the same theme at age-appropriate levels. There will be sermons on the themes, activities and discussions for children and youth, and many of our small groups integrate the themes into their discussions. Parents, children and youth can also use the themes for family discussions on the way home from church or at the dinner table. These themes deepen our understanding of our own faith and strengthen our bonds with one another in religious community. The worship themes for the 2016-2017 church year are the following.
