Congregation sets Sunday service

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua (UUCNC) at 222 Temple St. in Fredonia, holds a Sunday Worship Service at 11 a.m., both at their physical location and on Zoom. For those wishing to join us virtually, please visit https://tinyurl.com/caluucnc. Click on “Worship Service” on the date you are attending and scroll down for the Zoom link. For those attending the in-person service, please follow the driveway and park in the lower lot behind the building.

The theme for November is generosity. On Sunday, members Leanna McMahon and Cheryl Ritch lead the group in its annual “Guest at Your Table” service.

The alarming rise of fascism, authoritarianism, and nationalism is putting the lives of people, and the sustainability of the planet, in critical danger. This year’s theme for the Guest at Your Table program of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee is “Pursuing Liberation.” UUSC holds that the transformational solutions we need come from communities most directly impacted by injustice, and UUSC partners with organizations around the globe that offer inspiration and guidance on the path to freedom and liberation for all. Please join us to listen to the words of Rev. Julián Jamaica Soto in exploring the ways hospitality and liberation are linked in our lives and in the global justice work of our UUSC grassroots partners.

Following the service, join us for coffee, tea, and light refreshments.

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua strives to be a vibrant, welcoming, multigenerational, diverse community enlivened by the power of radical love.
