Summer Services

Zoom with us this summer!

Rev. Claire and Worship and Music Action Team decided to keep our services on Zoom this summer. We had to plan pretty far in advance, so a sudden pivot to in-person was not possible and not preferred by WMAT. We feel staying on Zoom through Labor Day allows everyone a chance to slowly and steadily get used to public life again. Plus–we can reap the benefits of online worship a bit longer and hear from folks who ordinarily wouldn’t be available! A live person from our Lay Ministry or Worship and Music team will host every service and offer a time for Joys and Sorrows; some preachers will be live and some will be pre-recorded. Here is our current preaching schedule for the summer:

 

June 20, Rev. Chris Jablonski of First Church Belmont (UU) (pre-recorded)
June 27, General Assembly Live Stream Worship
July 4, Rev. Kate Wilkinson of the UU Meeting House of Provincetown (pre-recorded)
July 11, Rev. Tom Schade (live)
July 18, Rev. Tom Schade (live)
July 25, Rev. Tom Schade (live)
August 1, Gordon Hardy, Follen member (live)
August 8, Rev. Susanne Intriligator of the Melrose UU Church (formerly of Follen!) (pre-recorded)
August 15, Rev. Anne Mason of First Parish in Lexington (UU) (pre-recorded)
August 22, Jane Spickett, Follen member (live)
August 29, Alexis Johnson, Follen member (live)
Sept. 5, Rev. Hank Peirce from the UU Church of Reading (pre-recorded)
