A team of UU Ministers have joined forces to create a unique set of worship services based on movies of their choice for all congregations involved to share and utilize in their own way this Summer, including our own Rev. Christian Schmidt! Our plan is to watch each of these movies on the Saturday evening preceding the Sunday service relating to their movie choice and you're invited to watch with us!
We will kick off this Summer series with a virtual viewing party on Saturday June 5th by watching Star Wars: The Last Jedi at 5pm using our normal Sunday Service ZOOM link found at the top of our homepage so we can all enjoy a "night at the movies" together. After a year of Pandemic and isolation, we could all use a bit more fun time together and we hope this Summer series will be one for all to enjoy!
We encourage everyone to treat this as a "Dinner and A Movie" event so feel free to enjoy your food and beverage of choice during the show (just don't forget to turn your camera and microphone off while you eat). There will be an intermission for restroom breaks, refreshments, and brief discussion before watching the second half of the movie, and then we'll open up for discussion and dessert afterward!
On Sunday June 6th we'll enjoy a special worship service titled “Saying What We Love: The Theology of Star Wars” by Rev. Christian Schmidt and his wife Rev. Kristin Schmidt at our normal Worship service time.
The Worship Committee plans to hold Hybrid Virtual and In-Person Movie Nights during the month of July. Masks, Social Distancing, and Vaccinated Persons are strongly encouraged as we begin to be together again and remain conscious of the health and safety of all.
Stay tuned for more announcements and information on this exciting Summer movie series as it develops!
