Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Benton County


Our homily is titled “Not Your Grandmother’s Sabbath” written by Rev. Ana Levy-Lyons, First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn, NY., and delivered by Julie Jensen.

This summer, we have been contemplating the meaning (or potential meaning) of Sabbath in your life and considering ways to find time to feed your soul.

Keeping a Sabbath is hard, especially in our culture, especially if you didn’t grow up doing it, especially if you don’t believe that God commanded you to do it. It takes effort to push back against powerful cultural norms. You need to be strong in carving out the space for yourself or that space will breakdown.


Come anytime between 10:30-11:00 a.m. for coffee 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.

See upcoming services for specific service details.
