Worship at NUUC

In keeping with the Universalist tradition of hearing the spiritual voice of all congregants, NUUC schedules our minister to give three sermons per month with the other Sunday services led by laypersons from the congregation or outside speakers and ministers.

The content and format of services vary considerably.  We recommend that visitors come back several times to get a full appreciation of how we worship at NUUC.  To get a sense of the sermon messages, we have archived selected past sermons.  Learn more about Our Traditions and A Typical Year at NUUC.

Children participate in our religious education program and children’s chapel.  Learn more about our Children’s Religious Education program.


All services led by Rev. Susan Ritchie unless otherwise noted.
