an Invitation to visit my congregation with me this Sunday, Oct. 16
I’d like to invite you to visit my congregation with me this Sunday, Oct. 16.
Our Lead Minister, Doug Kraft, will be giving the THIRD in his series of talks related to the spiritual theme of “Selflessness.” The subtitle is  “Guidance.”  He’s been drawing on Buddhism and Unitarian Universalist spiritual sources.  There will be special music, and refreshments and conversation after the service.  Our Music Director, Eric Stetson, will be there, as well as our Family Minister, Roger Jones.
 It’s the Unitarian Universalist Society of Sacramento, located at 2425 Sierra Blvd.  Our website is  Services are at 9:30 am and 11:15 am.  The services are identical except we have child and youth programs at the early service.  (More below.)  We have nursery care for children through age 5 at both services.
It’s a good idea to come 10 minutes early to find your way  in, receive a name tag and fill out a simple guest card, and find a good seat.  The congregation likes to get to know our guests, so plan to stay after for refreshments and conversation.
We have Religious Education Programs for Youth & Children. At 9:30 AM service, we all start out together in the sanctuary.  15 minutes later, children from grades 1-5 go to the Spirit Play room and youth go to the Junior High Youth Group and the Senior High Youth Group.    (The guest speaker for the senior high group is from WEAVE, a local agency that provides prevention and victim assistance for domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking.)  The programs end at 10:45 AM.  Sunday School recently began for this church year, so this is a good time for teenagers and kids to check out our programs and start to make friends here if they like what they experience.
Brochures and a handbook for classes are available before the 9:30 AM service starts, at the RE Welcome Table.
We have several classes for adults too:   Easy Yoga, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, a book discussion group, a documentary film group (watching “Forks over Knives” at 4 PM Sunday), and Fencing for All Ages (no joke!).  There is an Adult Enrichment table in the church lobby where you can find out about these classes during the refreshment time after the services.  Let me know if you have any questions!
