Worship With Us

Join us In Person or on our Livestream, Sunday at 10 am

We gather in worship to find meaning and live more deeply. Worship creates connections within, among, and beyond us, calling us to our better selves, calling us to live with wisdom and compassion. Our Sunday worship service are often interactive. With lively musical offering, reverent ancient readings, slam poetry, dynamic calls to action, and intergenerational connection are prominent pieces of our congregational life.

  • The Transgender Day of Remembrance is set aside to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. All Are Welcome to Join in this Observance of Remembrance, Mourning, and Affirmation on Sunday, November 20, 2022 (location TBD).With this service we raise public awareness, mourn and honor the lives of our transgender and gender non-conforming kin and we express love and respect in the face of national indifference and hatred. The Transgender Day of Remembrance was started in 1999 by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgenderwoman who was killed in 1998. The vigil commemorated all the transgender people lost to violence since Rita Hester’s death, and began an important tradition that has become the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. Would you like to participate in this service? Those who are themselves transgender or gender non-conforming are especially encouraged to participate. Those who have family members who are transgender or gender non-conforming are also especially encouraged to participate. Offers to participate or questions can be directed to Rev. Anya Sammler-Micheal at revanya@uumontclair.org.
