Religious Services Team (RST)
Feel moved by and connected to the Sunday worship services? Think you might enjoy creating and participating in the Worship Service experience by sharing your talents? This team is for you! The RST creates and offers Sunday services once a month and at other times when our minister is away or not preaching. The team’s mission is to create sacred space and opportunities to connect, celebrate, inspire and deepen our intellectual and spiritual lives. The team also maintains continuity of the services while providing new and diverse insights and points of view. By working together as a team, we share our creativity, our time and energy, our experience, and our selves.
More Information: If you would like to volunteer for the RST, we encourage you to first participate in the Worship Associate Program, facilitated by Rev. Wolin.
Here's an example of a reflection given by Religious Services Team member Allen Bertsche.
"Hearing the thoughts of my fellow UU’s is powerful. One of the wonderful things about this Congregation is that we can inspire one another to be more mindful and to be more compassionate. It has helped me in my relationships with family and friends. Thank you for those powerful moments that have helped me to grow."

"I was here on one of my first Sundays and a gentleman from the Religious Services Committee made a comparison through various art genres of the many types of religions throughout the world. He depicted each as a different type of art to explain their fundamental view of religious expression and philosophy. Unitarian Universalists, he explained, are like Cubists (who) show multiple perspectives of something all at once to see it more completely and perhaps understand that thing better. As an example, he showed a guitar from many viewpoints – top, bottom, side, front, but all a guitar – and then, put them on the canvas at the same time so we could appreciate all the perspectives at once. Well, as you can imagine, by that point, I was hooked. This powerful moment helped me to see that Unitarian Universalists not only acknowledge the value of different religious and spiritual perspectives but actually embrace these differences and attempt to bring them together into one place of worship and community. To take the best from each and move forward to make a difference."
