At BUU we have a creative and energetic Worship Arts Team that is responsible for planning our Sunday services. Our normal process is to have three minister led services each month except for July and August. Right now we are in a transitions mode without a regular minister, but we expect to have ministerial services three times a month through guest ministers starting in October.

We always enjoy getting to know each other even better through our lay led services. About once a quarter we have a panel of members presenting their This I Believe essays, inspired by Edward R. Morrow’s past series of that title. We also have outside speakers from community groups and resources sometimes on a special topic of interest. Lay led services retain our particular, meaningful ritual parts that include lighting and extinguishing the chalice, reciting our covenant, sharing part of our Sunday plate with local charities, and singing Spirit of Life.

If you have already discovered us and have an interest in connecting through participation in the planning or implementation of Sunday services, contact Diane Farone with any questions you have. We always need people who can be Worship Associates or Leaders, who want to be involved in planning services, who have a passion for conducting a lay led service on a favorite topic, who want to be greeters or ushers, and especially anyone who has skills with technology for streaming or recording and uploading services.

Our members are Mary Arrigoni, Leslie Carter, Diane Farone, Martha House, Ginny Lopez, Nancy Murphy, and Marilyn Taylor.
