North Shore Unitarian Church services are generally about an hour in length and include beautiful instrumental and choir music, hymns, readings, silence for meditation, and a sermon.
Sunday morning services are held at 9:15 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.
Worship services incorporate the following elements:
- Prior to the service, we light the chalice, the symbol of our faith.
- We enjoy traditional and contemporary musical preludes and postludes.
- Children are present at the beginning of most services.
- We listen to a special “Story for the Child in Each of Us” related to the topic of the service.
- A quartet of professional musicians and a choir perform at many services. Songs and hymns are sung by the congregation.
- Joys and Concerns are shared by members of the congregation to keep those among us in need or celebration in our thoughts. A candle is lit to honor each joy and concern as well as one for those that remain unspoken.
- Time spent in silent meditation and reflection.
- Gifts of generosity are shared through an offering.
- A sermon, frequently focusing on contemporary themes as well as the timeless issues of life.
- We close our service with singing and music.
