Our Services begin at 11 am on Sundays with fellowship and refreshments following. Please remember to bring donations of shelf-stable foods and canned goods to add to our greater collection for our local food bank and feminine hygiene products for the Homeless Period Project.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday (in 2018: February 14th), marking the beginning of Lent, which is intended to be a time of self-denial, moderation, fasting, and the forsaking of sinful activities and habits.
Lent is the period of 40 days (which comes before Easter in the Christian calendar) set aside for reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days. This year Lent starts on Feb 14th and Ends on Mar 29th.
We encourage each other to join in out UU Lent Practice of focusing on a word a day for spiritual growth and insight.

Join us for our monthly packing party. Donations welcome throughout the month.
You may think of your period as an annoyance but can you imagine not having pads/tampons every month? Did you know that feminine hygiene products are the least donated products to homeless shelters? Did you know that many girls in our schools do not have access to these necessities? For many the implications of living without these necessary supplies are serious… it’s the difference between attending school or work, between peace of mind and humiliation or between infection and health.
