First Parish of Sudbury Unitarian Universalist
SUDBURY — First Parish of Sudbury Unitarian Universalist, 327 Concord Road, announced the following:
Sunday, May 31
Online, Sunday, 10 a.m. at http://fpsudbury.org.
How do we know if we are ready for a change in our lives? What is the signal that we are willing or open to transformation? Do we prefer not to change or do we seek the lessons found in change? Over the last couple of months, we have faced probably one of the biggest challenges/changes in our lives, however at the same time, one day still flows into the next without vast distinction. We lose track of what day it is we spent time tending our lives and/or our gardens. What are the lessons of this time and are we ready to embrace them?
Sunday service begins at 10 a.m. and is followed by a social hour (online) where visitors are warmly welcomed. At First Parish, we offer religious exploration for all ages: children, teens and adults. We have a deeply personal and “whole person” approach to learning and growing. Our focus includes building community and how we connect with one another.
FPS is a Unitarian Universalist welcoming congregation, encouraging and celebrating the participation of all people regardless of theological belief, sexual orientation or gender identity. We would love to meet you, so please join us!
