I hope this finds you enjoying the beauty of summer. For over a year, we’ve gathered in our online sanctuary together. We got used to our pandemic routines, so I want to make sure you’re aware of some important changes.
This Sunday, July 4, and for all of July and August, we will be participating in GLAM’s* Virtual SUUmmer Road Trip which will take us to worship in congregations across Greater Los Angeles. These services will occur at 10:30 am (please note the new time) and can be accessed through Zoom each week.
Following each service, we will gather with all of the other UUs present for a common coffee hour with breakout rooms that will allow us to get to know our neighbors better. You can still make financial contributions each Sunday morning to support our congregation and good work in the world.
Our GLAM Virtual SUUmmer Road Trip will not only give our staff and worship leaders a much needed break, but it will also allow us to learn from our sibling congregations, and forge relationships across our congregations.
We plan to return to our sanctuary on Sunday, September 5th.
May your summer be filled with an abundance of joy, hope, and love!
Yours in ministry,
Rev. Jeremiah Lal Shahbaz Kalendae, M.Div., M.S.S.A.
Developmental Minister, Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Santa Monica
*Greater Los Angeles (UU) Ministry
