Join us to celebrate the ways Unitarian Universalism illuminates our journeys and brightens our world. Together, we will reflect on UU values that are important to us and take the opportunity to refocus our hope and commitment to advance these values in the coming year. Join Tanya Webster, Director of Religious Education, our youth and families, and Rev. Sollie for this special worship.
