Northwoods Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

UU Wisdom

"The Bible is holy scripture because it is a living document and foundation of many important faiths, including Unitarian Universalism. To abandon the Bible would mean alienation from one of the world's most important influences on religious thought—liberal and otherwise. Our UU [Unitarian Universalist] Principles and Purposes are saturated with biblical concepts and ideals. Our concept of respect for the web of existence, for instance, emanates from a stream of thought that flows through the Psalms and the Prophets from that same God of Genesis who declared the goodness of creation."

—David McFarland, minister

Visitors

Visitors

The Northwoods Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a welcoming congregation.

When you first visit our fellowship, you will be greeted at the door, and if you wish, your presence will be acknowledged at the beginning of the service. Most members at our Fellowship dress up a bit; however, some come dressed for a hike in the woods, so wear what you are comfortable with.

Our services are held every other Sunday at 10:00 a.m. On alternate Sundays, adult religious education sessions are held at 10:00 a.m. Coffee and snacks follow each service. Coffee and cookies or bars are available at adult R.E.

Children's religious education is held during services, but not on alternate Sundays. Currently, we have a small group of 6-13 year-olds active in Children's RE. We generally do not meet during school breaks or holiday weekends. Your children are welcome to sit with you during the service, whether or not children's RE is offered on the Sunday you are here.

We hope you will find us to be friendly and open, and will continue to visit our fellowship. We do not pressure visitors to join, but we are always happy to welcome new members.

Our members come from a wide variety of religious backgrounds, including Unitarian/Universalist, Judaic, Catholic, protestant, pagan, agnostic and athiest. We welcome people of all races, creeds and sexual orientation.

Church services begin with announcements, then lighting of the Chalice, and sharing of joys and concerns. We have visiting UU ministers, or guest speakers, or member-directed services. Music is provided by the members, including a choir, duets or solos, or a recorder ensemble. We join together to sing 2-3 hymns accompanied by our pianist during the services. Following the sermon or presentation, we have a "Talk-back" time in which congregants may share their impressions of the topic or ask questions of the presenter.
