Wednesdays at 7

Wednesday, September 23

(No group gathering)


Take a pause! Take a Deep breath.....or two...Try something new

On 9/16 Wednesdays at 7 focused on practices and resources that RUC members have found helpful in building resilience to meet these challenging times.

We talked about exercise and meditation and a new RUC small group, the Coloring Circle. So this week try RUC Zoom meditation on Tuesday at 11 or Saturday at 10, apps like Calm or Headspace. There are mindfulness programs for kids or you can listen to Rain on Leaves curated by Lebron James.

Exercise by taking a brisk walk, going to a free virtual exercise class on YouTube or watching Sit and be Fit on PBS. All ages, all levels—just move.

Sunday Worship

We are hosting our Sunday Worship using Zoom.  Gathering begins at 10:30 and live worship begins at 10:45.  You can join in the service at anytime by clicking the camera icon.

We love for visitors to join our worship.  Unfortunately in July our service suffered some hateful people coming in with hate messages and distasteful images so we now must password our service.

Please email the Pastor to get the password.

You can also view the service and all past services by clicking HERE.

Please Remember Your Pledges!

You can mail your check to the church or give your offering electronically by clicking HERE.
