Standing Committees & Teams
The Worship Team works with the minister to create transformative Sunday services at the Fellowship. The minister leads services twice a month. Other services are presented by members, friends and visiting speakers. The team coordinates it all.
The team meets monthly (2nd Sundays, after coffee hour, 12-1:15). All members and friends are welcome to participate. At team meetings we balance logistics (e.g., pulpit supplies, sound system, orders of service), with learning spiritual reflection (e.g., how did past services go? What themes are calling to our hearts?)
At a Worship Visioning Retreat in June, several themes emerged, Diversity; Living a Good Life; Radical Hospitality; Truth, Science & Religion. Several groups of members are working on presentations. Rev. Mary’s theme for the year is Building a Living Faith.
The Worship Team is supported by members who trained as Worship Associates (trained here in our Fellowship) or as service leaders (trained beyond OUUF). You don’t have to be a service leader or Worship Associate to serve on the Worship Team. We welcome everyone who would like to help us create worship that transforms us into who we can be, worship that touches our hearts and empowers our minds and bodies. Come to a meeting and decide if you’d like to join the team!
