Join Us This Sunday Morning

Water Communion: Sunday, August 24

Every year around this time, UU churches around the country are gearing up for their Ingathering services to mark the end of summer and the beginning of the new church year. We have much to celebrate this year! Not only are we all returning from our summer schedules and adventures, but this Sunday, we welcome Rev. Ellen  back from sabbatical, as well as celebrate Water Communion. There’s a lot of fun going on, so I hope as many of you as possible will turn out to welcome Rev. Ellen back to Northwoods!

If you have gathered water this summer please bring it to add to the community bowl.  This can be water from a special place or in recognition of a special time you had this summer, either at home or in journeys.  It can be tap water collected at a friend’s home, or melted glacier collected from a far away place.  The water will be blended in a communal vessel and blessed.  It is a lovely way to celebrate the end of summer, and a beautiful symbol of coming together again after a summer of journeys.

 

 

Sunday Service Times: 9:30 and 11:30am

Childcare is available for younger children during and between services, and the family room will be open to parents and guardians who would like to continue to listen to the service while tending to their children’s needs.

Millbend Coffee House

Millbend Coffeehouse Presents
Emma’s Revolution
September 9th ~ 7:30pm
The long awaited emma’s revolution concert at Millbend Coffeehouse will happen on Sept. 13. Pat Humphries & Sandy O are very creative progressive songwriters– putting into song the most cutting edge issues of the day. They perform almost every year at General Assembly and at many UU churches. When I spoke with Pat at GA in Providence, RI in June, she was excited to be coming to our church. I expect UU’s from all over Houston to attend & I highly recommend this concert to NUUC members.

The Charity of the Evening for the concert will be the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, so we need volunteers for the kitchen and gate. Please call Teresa at 281-350-3052 if you would like to donate food or time to this event.
