Services in May - Blessing
All services begin at 10:00 am unless otherwise noted
May 1: "Unexpected Blessings" music Sunday
with Joe Uveges and Rev. Dana Lightsey
Remember those moments when the universe just drops something into your lap? How does that happen? What might we do to instigate such blessings? This service will also welcome new members into our congregation.
May 8: "The Blessing of Birth and Life" with Rev. Dana Lightsey
This Mothers Day we are celebrating the birth of life, which all of us have and some of us have given to our children. Life is painful and difficult and also miraculous in every moment. The trick is finding the blessing in each moment. Come celebrate your life and all our lives given to us by our mothers. We will also dedicate our children into the community with this service.
May 15: "Serving with Grace: The Spiritual Value of Lay Leadership"
with the Leadership Development Team
UU minister Erik Walker Wikstrom's book "Serving with Grace" provides wonderful guidance about how lay congregational leadership can not only support a church but also help individual lay leaders grow and develop as human beings. During a month when our theme is "blessings", join us in considering how the lay leadership we provide to High Plains is a blessing to ourselves, our community, the congregation, and even Colorado Springs. The service is followed by a forum on "Lay Leadership and Meaningful Meetings". Everyone is welcome and team leads are especially invited.
May 22: "Bridging: A service of transition" with Jessica Laike
Join us as our high school youth honor the times of transition in their lives. We will say goodbye to our graduating seniors as they share their experiences of the youth community and look forward as they move into young adulthood. We will be welcoming in our rising 9th and 10th graders who will be joining our YRUU Youth Group next year. We will also be honoring our Sunday school teachers and the important ministry they provide to our children and youth. You won't want to miss this moving service of acknowledgement, recognition and transition."
May 29: "The Blessing of Remembrance" with Rev. Dana Lightsey
Join us this Memorial Day Sunday, as we reflect on the deep and powerful blessings of those loved ones who are no longer with us and those who gave their lives to serve and protect our country. Join us as we share our gratitude for all the ways they have blessed our lives.
