You can check out live-streaming on Thursdays, 6:15pm, for Dinner Church. Prepare your own meal at home and sit down with us for a worship service of prayer, contemplation and song. To see last week's service, check out our YouTube page.
Sundays, 11am, we will have a “television-format” of worship with your usual cast of characters from our usual in-person worship: our Pastors, Seminarian, Minister of Music, Assistant Musical Director and Choral Section Leaders, with some potential surprise guests! You can join us in your pajamas, around the breakfast table, in your living room. We look forward to trying out this new way of being a worshiping church.
The season of Lent is a time to dig deeper into your soul, to find new and creative ways to grow in faith and in relationship with God and others. We are taking time this season to delve into what it means to discern God’s will in our lives, with opportunities to do that individually and collectively at United Parish. We hope you will join us in ways that may unleash your imagination, feed your soul, and help us all connect more deeply with the presence of God in our midst.

Lenten Study: Discernment, Finding Clarity in the Chaos, March 1-April 5
How do you find a way when you don’t know what to do? Are you wrestling with some questions you want help answering? Would you like to try walking in partnership with the Divine? We hope you will come for an introductory session on Sunday, March 1 from 12:30-2pm to learn more over lunch in the Parlor. This promises to be a helpful study for all of us. We will hold regular study sessions throughout the season on Sundays and 1-2 weekday times, based on need and availability. For more information, contact Kent (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Deb H. (email@example.com).

Lenten Study Packet Workshop #6
We encourage everyone to try having a prayer partner for this Lenten season. You may think that you are not that spiritual, or that you don't know how to pray, or even if you do, you don't want to share that with someone else, that it's private. That's ok. Just give it a try. It's a holy experiment, basically committing to having a spiritual buddy in the congregation with whom you talk for 5-15 minutes each week from now through Easter (April 12). Sign up here. Please review this brief guide for ways you might get to know each other and ways to try praying together or individually on behalf of the other. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thursday Lenten Dinner Church, 6:15-7pm, Parlor, March 5-April 2
Join us for a contemplative, candlelit service over a shared meal on Thursday evenings, March 5 through April 2 from 6:15-7:00pm in the Parlor. Doors open at 6pm. Dinner church is a post-modern return to an ancient worship model, just like what the early Christians did in their own homes. We’ll enjoy soup, salad, communion, prayer, confession and music. For more information, contact Seminarian Jaz Buchanan at email@example.com or Associate Pastor Amy Norton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday Lenten Worship
We will follow the themes of our Lenten study of discovering what Discernment means and how to find clarity in chaos, each Sunday morning at 11am in the Sanctuary.
Every Easter, we decorate the Sanctuary with lilies, tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and hydrangeas. To contribute toward the Easter flowers in memory or in honor of loved ones, you may turn in your contribution of $10 for each in the offering plate on Sunday. You may also mail a check to the Church Office.
If you turn in names with your check, please print names legibly on the form found in the pews and on the welcome tables. Please fill out the form HERE with the information for printing in the bulletin on Easter Sunday.
DEADLINE FOR NAMES IS SUNDAY, APRIL 5, 2020 (Palm Sunday).
