September

Ingathering

We celebrate the beginning of another church year with an Ingathering service which is usually the first Sunday after Labor Day weekend. We greet friends we haven't seen much over the summer when people are away or out enjoying the Seattle sunshine. Both children and adults enjoy an multigenerational service together. The next Sunday the regular classes begin for children. On this day we return to two Sunday services.

Seabeck

Our annual church retreat is held in September at the Seabeck Conference Center, on beautiful Hood Canal. We promise a weekend of relaxation, fellowship, programs, and fun.

November

Northwest Artists’ Holiday Show

On the first weekend in November nearly the entire church is transformed into an art show. Artisans display their fine art, gourmet foods, and hand crafted creations, including jewelry, ceramics, and textile art. Most of the members help move furniture, make hors d'oeuvres, direct traffic, or otherwise assist with this event.

December

Christmas Eve Service - December 24

On Christmas Eve we offer an early evening family service and a later contemplative service filled with Christmas music and stories. Although the program changes from year to year, the service always ends the same: each of us in the congregation holds a candle and together we sing, “Silent Night.”

Homecoming - Sunday after Christmas

Young adults who graduated from high school last year speak from the pulpit about their experiences at college or out in the world. We celebrate their return for the holidays and are proud of their achievements.

January

Youth Service

Once a year, not always in January, the Senior High Youth Group plans and presents a church service. These creative services impress us with the mature spirituality, musical talents, and sense of fun in our youth.

Rummage Sale - first Friday and Saturday

Our annual recycling event and fundraiser is held in May. Clean out your closets and drawers; scour the attic, basement and garage for useable, no-longer-wanted household items, clothing, toys, and books. We sort and tag the week prior to the sale and have a great time “playing store” for our neighbors in the community. more...

Youth Transitions Service

Flower Communion

Our Flower Communion is held on a Sunday in spring to remind ourselves of the value and beauty of each of us, even though we come from different gardens.

Youth Transitions Service

Our eighth graders who finished their coming of age curriculum demonstrate the spiritual growth they have achieved in their lives. This year they examined Unitarian Universalism and considered various sources of spiritual knowledge. With introspection each of them shares their unique personal creed. As the eigth graders bridge into the Senior High Youth Group, the graduating seniors bridge into the adult community.

General Assembly

Around the third week in June the UUA holds General Assembly which gives us the opportunity to mingle with hundreds of UUs over several days. In addition to the business meeting for congregational delegates, the people gather to worship, sing, learn, witness, and work. The focus of the sessions is on social justice issues.

July

Independence Day Picnic - Sunday closest to the 4th

Most years we have a picnic in the shade of our trees instead of staying inside for a Sunday Service. Bring food to share and for yourself, bring your own dishes and lawn chairs. We will have games for children and plenty of conversation for adults.

Summer Campout

Join us on an unstructured camping retreat at a family-friendly reserved group campsite. Come for the s’mores, the campfires, and the community. more...
