“Christmas is a risk for us to take. Shall we allow ourselves to be touched by sentiment? Awakened by song and story? Drawn into festivities, when our joy depends upon the goodwill of others? Dare we risk the disappointment of hopes raised high and excited expectations? May we have the courage to celebrate the season fully.” – Rexford J. Styzens

This Sunday, our youth and children will lead us in a service about Why we need Christmas. There will be joy, music, and fun.

We would love to have you come worship with us.

Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m. at the Progressive Women’s Association Event Center, 305 Washington Ave. in downtown Clarksburg, behind the Courthouse.

From 10am to 10:45am we will be discussing “The Religious Educator of Color” and the “Response to Natalie Maxwell Fenimore and Aisha Hauser” from the book Centering: Navigating Race, Authenticity, and Power in Ministry.

There will be a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.

Classes and worship are replaced by Spiritual Outings on the first Sunday of each month during the summer, with brief worship, a potluck picnic, and outdoor activities. The schedule is in the sidebar.

Children are welcome.

The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom.

New Adventures … Coming Soon!

After much deliberation, we have come to the decision to hold services every Sunday. This will start on November 1, 2015. We believe that we have enough people coming regularly to make this leap. We will continue to have guests as often as we can. Thinking ahead, here is our service calendar for the next couple of months with service leaders and some topics. The details of the services will be posted on the blog the Sunday evening before the service.

  • October 18 – Rev. James Reeb, UUs and Equality – John
  • November 1 – Day of the Dead – Lisa
  • November 8 – Reconciliation and Forgiveness– Cricket
  • November 15 – Visiting Guest Rev. Donald Rollins – look for Music and Fun
  • November 22 – UU History – Robert
  • November 29 – Finding Your Tribe – Cricket
  • December 6 – Living UU Principles –  Lisa
  • December 13 – Children/ Youth – John and Kids
  • December 20 – Seasonal – Robert and Lisa
  • December 27th We will not be having a service on this Sunday. We do invite you all to join us as we travel to Marietta OH on Christmas Eve.

Also we will be starting a religious education program. The adults will be working on Building Your Theology and the children will be working on What do You Stand For?  We will be doing Religious Education from 10 to 10:45 on Sunday Mornings Starting November 1st. We will have time for coffee and sharing at 10:45 am and then the worship service will begin at 11am.  We will still be in the PWA Uptown event center at 305 Washington Ave. in Clarksburg, WV.

Hope to see you there.
