Originally from Bhutan, Sagar and his family came to Utica as refugees about five years ago after living in Nepali refugee camps for almost 20 years. His father, Ganga Rijal, is a Hindu priest and is active in performing Hindu rituals and worship in Utica and other cities in the region. Sagar will introduce some of the most important Hindu rituals.

June 7, 2015 "Savoring Our Lives"
Rev. Eve Stevens will lead us in a time of slowing down to feel fully how the holy is all around and within us. Waking up enough to feel and experience it is the goal.

Our worship service will end at 11:15 AM this day and our annual congregational meeting, when we put important matters concerning the congregation as a whole to a vote, will begin promptly at 11:30.

June 14, 2015 "The Interfaith Journey”

June 28, 2015 "Flower Communion"
Rev. Eve Stevens will lead us in the Flower Communion, which was originally created in 1923 by Unitarian minister Norbert Capek of Prague, Czechoslovakia. This ritual provides an opportunity for us to reflect on all the blessings we have to offer to one another and the aspects of our religious tradition that bring us joy! This service also marks the end of another church year together. Please bring a flower to place on the altar at church. After the service each of us will take home a different flower from the one we brought. Our annual church picnic will follow our Flower Communion.
