Sunday Morning Worship ~Nov 29 10:30 am

Sermon: “What Would It Mean to be Prepared?”
Our Intern in the Pulpit: Julia Jones
I admit it, I used to roll my eyes at the notion of prepping - folks getting ready for really hard times by storing huge amounts of supplies and survival gear. After the great toilet paper scare of earlier this year, that level of skepticism seems a little misplaced. In this season of Advent, however, I feel called to ask myself, and all of you as well, what is it we are preparing for. How would we spend this winter if we were preparing for a world we can really believe in?

Join us on https://www.youtube.com/user/beverlyunitarian at 10:30 AM.

BUC Spotlight

Stewardship Campaign Kickoff - March 13

Our annual Stewardship Campaign kicks off Sunday, March 13, during the morning service, followed by brunch. Long time member, Rev. Ian Evison, and his daughter, Elizabeth, will lead the appeal, inspiring all of us to be generous in our annual pledges. The campaign features personal visits with congregants to determine their interests, needs and financial support.

Maundy Thursday Communion Service

On April 1, Maundy Thursday, Rev. Marcia Curtis will lead a UU Communion Service in the BUC sanctuary at 7:00pm. The service will celebrate our UU heritage, our connection to earth (bread) and to each other (wine), and the promise that love is stronger than death.   

UU congregations have celebrated communion during Easter week all over the world for as long as Unitarianism and Universalism have been religions.  Although communion in its traditional form is rarely practiced in Midwest UU churches, the BUC Worship Committee feels that communion has a legitimate place, spiritually and culturally, in our church.

The Worship Committee is hosting this service and will provide music and light refreshments. All are invited.

Pre-Service Church Development Task Force Meetings

The Church Development Task Force will meet every 2 weeks at 8:30AM before Sunday services, beginning February 14. This will be an open ended project. These meetings are for anyone who is interested in discussing the Architectural Feasibility Study recommendations, alternatives to the current church building and related financial issues. Contact Kristi Anderson for more information.

Architectural Feasibility Study is Here!

Last spring the Congregation decided to gather additional information before making a decision about whether to remain in the Castle.  A critical piece of that information has just arrived.  The architectural team has sent us the feasibility study for castle improvements and copies have been emailed to church members and friends.  We also have several hard copies to borrow in the back of the sanctuary at church.  The architects have been very thorough in their research of building codes, of historical preservation, and of green building options, in order to meets our needs for accessibility, comfort, storage, visibility and community space. 

Buddhist Meditation

Reverend Marcia Curtis is temporarily canceling the Sunday evening meditation until further notice. For more information please click redlotussangha.org.
We hope to resume the meditation and dharma talks in the next few weeks.
