Summer Worship Services
Join us for Summer Worship Services held each Sunday throughout the summer break. Each 30 minute gathering will have a theme, typically with relevant readings and musical selections, followed by Social Hour in the courtyard. A schedule of lay leaders and worship themes can be found HERE. There will be no separate program or activity for youth or children, so they should plan to attend with their parents/guardians. All are welcome, join us!

An Introduction to Judaism
As the Jewish High Holidays approach, join UULC Chair, Naomi Cameron and Temple Beth Elohim member Eric Rosen for a primer on Jewish belief, practice, and liturgical year.

Starfish Annual Day of Service
UU Wellesley volunteers will once again be heading up to Camp Starfish in Rindge NH for our annual service trip. Youth (both middle and high school) will leave after school on Friday, September 22 from our parking lot, and spend the evening there having dinner, playing games, and doing bonding activities. The following day, Saturday, September 23, the rest of the congregation will join them for a variety of service projects. The congregation will leave from the church parking lot at 8am, or you can drive separately — plan to be there by 9:30am. We will have lunch there and head back home around 4 pm. Sign-up HERE.
