2014 Summer Services and Activities…

…for UU Members, Friends and Seekers


Summer Services

On July 13 we moved our discussion services back to Sunday mornings. We've kept the successful elements of the past two summers, plus added a few twists,  new experiences, and intriguing themes.

Here’s the summer schedule:

  • Summer discussion services will be Sunday mornings July 13 - August 24 at 10:30 am
  • Labor Day weekend Sunday, August 31, there will be no official service but we will have coffee hour and fellowship at 10:30 am.
  • Our regular Sunday morning services begin again on September 7 at 10:30 am.

On Sunday mornings in the summer, our format is relaxed as we sit together at our round tables, perfectly suited to encourage conversation. We will have music and a brief themed and thought provoking reading followed by plenty of time for rich discussion. The theme for June was science; in July its art; and coming up in August, we get into authors such as Thoreau, Emerson, Fulghum and Church. There are no children’s religious education programs during the summer, however children are welcome at service.


Potluck Picnics

Our traditional UU Potluck Picnics will still be once a month on Sunday mornings following service from 12:00 n - 2:00 pm with options to carpool from the church:

  • June 22 Angela Harmon was host
  • July 13 the picnic was at the Hathaway Homestead
  • August 17 we will meet at Wachter Park, Shelter #2. Wachter Park is on the corner of E. Reno Ave. and S. 3rd St.

Please bring a dish to share and your own lawnchairs. All are welcome!


Hiking Church

On Saturday, July 26, (note the date change) Colleen Reinke will be leading a family-friendly hiking service in Theodore Roosevelt National Park (south unit) near Medora. Carpools will leave Bismarck at 8:00 am. How exciting! For more information on Hiking Church, contact Colleen: cjreinke@gmail.com.


As always, watch your email announcements and newsletters for further information and details!
