Sunday, June 27, 2021 – UUA General Assembly Service

Livestream Only – This Sunday service will feature the First Universalist Church of Minneapolis. First Universalist has been a model of shared ministry and what it means to put the work of dismantling white supremacy and building anti-racist, anti-oppressive practices at the center of their ministry. They have been on the front lines in support of the Movement for Black Lives in Minneapolis, bringing spiritual care and moral leadership in the wake of George Floyd’s murder by police and the important uprisings for justice that followed. Children and families are a vital part of their ministry, and they have been using creative approaches to engage all ages in worship during the pandemic. Their leadership exemplifies some of the best practices for the creativity, spiritual depth, and moral leadership that is possible when we embrace the work of shared ministry rooted in love and justice. Join us virtually for the largest annual gathering of UUs joining in worship. You will have two options for this service.

9:00 am you can join the national broadcast and participate in the national coffee hour on Zoom or you can join our MDUUC stream at our regular 10:15 time followed by an MDUUC virtual coffee hour.
