Youth-led worship

Saturday, April 27, 2019, 8:30-9:15 a.m.

Saturday morning’s worship will focus on the theme “Growing into Ourselves.” This spiritual journey will focus on our roots and aspirations as individuals, as communities and as a movement. This worship will build on the DA theme “From the Ground Up” revolving around healthy, sustainable and revolutionary growth within ourselves and our world. Led by members of the Pacific Southwest District Youth Board, the heart of this service will be amplifying youth voices, empowering the community and growing with one another.

Clergy-led worship

Sunday, April 28, 2019, 9 and 11 a.m.

For the Sunday worship at the close of the District Assembly, UUCLB presents two worship services at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. The two services are separate and self-contained, but will also fit together to form one long worship service with an “Intermission” in the middle. 

Both services are inspired by the DA theme “From the Ground Up.” Both services will include a little of everything, but the 9 a.m. service emphasizes “the Word” with poetry and preaching from Interim Minister Rev. Rick Hoyt-McDaniels while the 11 a.m. service emphasizes “Music” with congregational singing and music from combined choirs from Unitarian Universalist churches throughout the area under the direction of UUCLB Director of Music Francisco Ruiz and DA Keynoter Donald Milton III. 

If you need to get on the road, come early and enjoy the 9 a.m. service. If you’re a late riser, come to the 11 a.m. service. If you can stay all morning, you’ll experience a full and fulfilling worship experience. Children’s RE programs will be offered during both services.
