LOVE BE OUR VISION
Our mission is to serve our community. How do we do this? In accordance with our Unitarian Universalist principles, and in Love. We explore how love might inform our vision for UUFC. Worship Leader-Rev. Bryan Plude; Worship Associate – Megan Johnson; Guitar Ensemble.
DAY OF REMEMBRANCE
The anniversary of the Camp Fire is near. We remember what and who we have lost. In conjunction with All Souls Day, we will also remember those dear to us. Please bring pictures or mementos. Worship Leader-Rev. Bryan Plude; Worship Associate – T.W. Theodore; Piano-Heather Thams; Choir Ensemble.
HOW SHALL WE LIVE
In our lifetime we each have experienced many forks in the road or bridges to cross. The important factor is not which direction we choose, but rather how we live before and after making those choices. Buddha stated “all we are is a result of what we have thought.” Today’s message will help bring clarity to our thought process.Worship Leader-Rev. Eileen Brownell; Worship Associate –Susan Bachlor; Pianist-Nick Arteaga; Song Leader-Mary Collins
AN ALTERNATIVE STORY
On October 14th many states celebrate Columbus Day. A few, California not among them, celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day. What is our local history with the Mechoopda Maidu and how do we begin to make amends? Worship Leader –Rev. Bryan Plude; Worship Associate—Courtney Boyden Singer; UUFC Guitar Ensemble.
A TEAM, NOT A CLUB
How might we best conceive of living intentionally in spiritual community, towards the goal of our maximum happiness and impact on the world? As a team, not as a club. Belonging to a team is much more fun, interesting and useful than joining a club. And guess what?You’ve already been picked for the starting lineup! Worship Leader-Rev. Chris Bell; Worship Associate – David Strohmeyer; Pianist/Song Leader—Heather Thams.
Our theme for October is democracy. How is it under threat and how can
UUFC make a difference? Worship Leader-Rev. Bryan Plude; Worship Associate –Dave Keller; Piano-Nick Arteaga; Choir Ensemble

THE SACRED IN ORDINARY THINGS
All sacred experience leads us to the smallest moment of the most ordinary day: a special moment, a kind person, waves crashing, leaves turning, your cat sleeping on the refrigerator, the birth of a grandchild. Worship Leader-Bonnie Bennett; Pianist-Sarah Donnelly; UUFC Choir.
A COVENENTAL PEOPLE
In the absence of a creed to bind us, Unitarian Universalists covenant with each other. “We do not have to think alike to love alike.” Worship Leader-Bryan Plude; Worship Associate – Megan Johnson; Pianist-Sarah Donnelly; Song Leader-Heather Thams.
Water is sacred in nearly every world religion. How might we treat our water differently if it was regarded as sacred in our secular culture? In our first gathering after summer, we join the waters of our summer spiritual journeys. Worship Leader-Bryan Plude; Worship Associate – Merrily Stover; UUFC Guitars.
