Gate A-4

We will reflect on the poem “Gate A-4,” by Arab-American Naomi Shihab Nye. This poem touches on questions such as: Who are we called to care for? When do we answer the call to serve? Where might we be surprised by grace?

We are always delighted to welcome guests! If this is your first time visiting a Unitarian Universalist church or our congregation, here’s some idea of what to expect:

A warm greeting at the door. We gather for Sunday worship at 10:30am, but you might want to arrive a bit early to chat and choose a seat.

A non-judgmental space. We welcome people of all abilities, ages, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and creeds.

Accessible facilities. We welcome and affirm people of all abilities with accessible grounds and services. Greeters and ushers are available to assist you.

Reach out to with any questions about the church or this worship service.
