Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Benton County


It’s time for our annual Flower Communion. 

Bring a flower.  Take home a flower.  A perfect service for June’s theme of Beauty.

Throughout the month of June, Unitarian Universalists all over the Northern Hemisphere engage in a tradition unique to UUism, the Flower Ceremony, in which we celebrate the great diversity among us and renew our commitment to religious plurality in our movement. Bring one or a few flowers to service at UUBC on June 10th – the local wildflower, the garden cutting, and the exotic blooms are equally welcome and wanted–as we hold our own Northwest Arkansan version of this annual early-summer ceremony. This will be an all-ages ceremony where children are especially invited to stay with their families during the service.

Come anytime between 10:30-11:00 a.m. for coffee and and socializing or stay after the service!

Sunday School is available for children with a Unitarian Universalist adaptation of Jerome Berryman’s book, “Spirit Play” as the primary resource. We structure the morning based on the Montessori approach. As in Montessori, the key elements are the classroom environment and the teachers. These elements free the children to work at their own pace on their own activities after an initial lesson.
