The Flower Communion: In celebration of the near completion of the congregational year, we share a ritual created by Czech Unitarian minister Norbert Capek, who died in a concentration camp in World War II. We celebrate the Flower Communion to encourage one another to have faith in Life and its beauty, especially at times of transition. Each member and friend is invited to bring a flower to the service. Together we create a bouquet of community. At the end of the service, we each take home a different flower and the blessing of being in community together. Service led by Rev. Mary Grigolia.
Please join us for pizza after the service and we encourage the Fellowship to stay for our leadership workshop!
Leadership Matters Workshop The Fellowship flourishes when members are encouraged to serve and lead. Leadership takes practice. What are the needs of leadership at UUFEC? What structures are already in place to train and support Board members? Worship leaders? Social Justice leaders? Religious Education leaders? What’s missing? What next steps are needed? Does anyone need to go to General Assembly or District trainings? May there be a team of leaders who go together? Might you support them as a congregation? Fair Trade Coffee & Tea will also be for sale before and after the service to benefit the fellowship and the well being of small farm cooperatives & communities. Find us on the Lower Level of the First Congregational United Church of Christ, 431 Columbus Avenue, Sandusky, Ohio.
