On Sunday, January 21 worship will be led by Rev. Terry Sweetser.

Childcare is available for infants and toddlers during worship. Service begins at 10:30am in the Sanctuary. Social Hour follows in Parish Hall. All are welcome, Join us!
We will donate the January 21 plate collection to the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, which works to support the most vulnerable citizens of this world, fighting oppression and injustice in the USA and abroad.
You have, no doubt, read about the Rohingya, a Muslim ethnic minority, that has suffered from systematic human rights violations in Burma/Myanmar. The Rohingya have been denied basic rights of citizenry, including access to healthcare and education. The Burmese military has indiscriminately killed and raped their people and burned their villages. Some 500,000 have fled into Bangladesh, creating a humanitarian crisis of unimaginable proportions.
UUSC has been partnering with grassroots organizations in Burma/Myanmar since 2002. Today, within Burma/Myanmar, the Service Committee is strengthening the capacity and coordination of organizations that work to build inclusive communities. Here at home, UUSC engages in strategic advocacy work to influence the United Nations and the US government to exert pressure on the Burmese government to protect ethnic and religious minorities.
We MUST help the Rohingya and all those whose basic human rights are denied. Please give generously to support OUR UU human rights organization, UUSC. Checks should be made out to “UUSWH,” with “UUSC” in the memo line. Please remember to clearly mark all pledge payments as such.
