On this glad Christmas morning, we gather at 10:15 in Fellowship Hall for a potluck Christmas brunch, sharing stories, singing familiar carols in the warmth of community.
Speaker: Rev. Dr. Margret A. O'Neall
We celebrate the season of love with story and song to light the dark with our Christmas Eve service for all ages. Gathered in person and on zoom, we will enjoy a special pageant with our children and youth, along with readings, stories and music to brighten the season with love.
How are we called to be in relationship in this changing world? The creation of beloved community is a learning journey, as we nurture the perspectives and skills that kindle the flame of love, the spirit of this church.
This time of Advent, as the earth turns toward the nurturing darkness of the Winter Solstice, calls us into the warmth of beloved community. Our connections are strengthened as we attend to the qualities we most value in our relationships.
As we begin Transgender Remembrance Week, we highlight the losses we face due to anti-transgender bigotry and violence. With so many seeking to erase transgender people — sometimes in the most brutal ways possible — it is vitally important that those we lose are remembered, and that we join with community partners like the Kaleidoscope program as allies in the struggle for justice.
is the source of life, and in our annual ritual of Water Communion we return from our journeys in a world united by water. Those attending in person are invited to bring water from wherever your summer wanderings took you, and those participating from home are invited to prepare a tiny water ceremony at home, as we celebrate the flow of love that uplifts and encourages our lives.
On this Labor Day weekend we celebrate the gift of service, in gratitude for all the many ways people serve the common good, and the deep satisfaction of generosity in all we do.
The UU Church in Cherry Hill celebrates the month of May as the anniversary of its founding, and so today we celebrate 66 years of history, exploring the contents of the time capsule that was placed in the Sanctuary walls in the year 2000, and placing a new time capsule to celebrate the Sanctuary renovation, affirming our hopes for the future of this beloved community.
May is our time of Flower Communion, as we celebrate the beauty of diversity in community; Mother’s Day as we celebrate the power of nurturing love; and a time to consider how we dwell together in peace, living into the values of community, trust, love and learning in this beloved congregation. Bring a flower to share, bring your open heart to connect in love.
The labyrinth is an ancient structure, created to support meditation and spiritual renewal in a gentle movement practice. We will share stories from labyrinth participants in this sacred space on UUCCH grounds, built on the site where the original Fellowship Hall of the church stood until it burned in the 1990s. All are invited to stay after the service to experience the labyrinth themselves, and to plan to attend our event on World Labyrinth Day at 12:30 pm the following Saturday.
