Our Sunday Services
Worship at the Walpole Unitarian Church promises a rich and diverse menu this year using a creative approach to sustainable ministry!
Reverend Elaine Bomford offers two services a month, and we draw from a large number of other professional and lay speakers. On the first Sunday of the month, we hold Circle Sunday service, a casual time to be together, discuss a topic, play and sing.
Worship Services Summer 2020
June, July, August
Unless otherwise noted, all services begin at 10 a.m.
Currently, services are held via Zoom! Link on home page.
Sunday, May 31 – “Pentecost Sunday: The Tower of Babel.” The story of the Tower of Babel is one of the oldest in the Hebrew Bible. It takes place soon after the events of Noah and the flood, when people in the land of Mesopotamia – what is now Iraq – were building ziggurat towers. Rev. Elaine leads us in a reflection upon its timeless themes.
Sunday, June 7 — Annual Meeting via Zoom. We will need a quorum to vote so please join in and learn about plans for the 2020 -2021 year.
Sunday, June 14 — Flag Day “I am whatever you make me, nothing more. I am your belief in yourself, your dream of what people may become,” ~ Franklin K. Lane. With Rev. Elaine Bomford, we explore our country's beloved symbol, the grand old flag.
Sunday, June 21 — “Father's Day” with guest speaker and guitarist Keith Penniman. A celebration of the bonds between fathers and children in story and song.
Sunday, June 28 — “Flower Celebration,” led by Rev. Elaine Bomford. The Unitarian Flower Celebration is one of the most beautiful and moving services in our tradition. In challenging times, we find new meaning in the ceremony, even as we adapt our celebration to a “virtual flower” environment. Please bring a flower or flowers of your choosing from your yard, a field, or by way to our Zoom celebration. Please include your flower(s) in your camera angle if you can!
Sunday, July 12 — “Good Friends,” Rev. Elaine Bomford. A morning to appreciate the nature and sustaining power of friendship.
Sunday, July 19 — “The Ten Commandments” with guest speaker Keith Penniman. Using new translations, fresh insights, and a little bit of humor, we will explore the significance of this ancient moral code for our lives today.
Sunday, July 26 — “Summer Songs” Circumstances (and weather) permitting, Rev. Elaine Bomford and Keith Penniman will present our first in-person worship service since the onset of the pandemic outdoors, with several uplifting songs to celebrate the summer! Strict “social distancing” will be observed. Please bring your own lawn chair.
No services the month of August. Relax. Rest. Sleep in. Read a book. Dream. Energize. Play.
