Summer 2016 Sunday Service Schedule

The Sunday Services Committee is pleased to announce the speakers for the July and August Sunday Services.  If you are in town, we believe you will find the services to be of great interest.  The summer schedule ends with two former ministers of USR.

During July, we welcome back three experienced UU ministers who have led USR services in the past:  On July 10 and 24, The Rev. Edward Frost will return to our pulpit.  Dr. Frost, the former senior minister of the UU Congregation of Atlanta, has preached at USR a number of times in the last couple of years.  On July 17, Rev. Heidi Swarts, who is on the faculty at Rutgers and who has spoken previously at USR, will lead our service.  And on July 31 Rev. Allen Wells, who has served UU congregations in New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts will return to the Unitarian Society of Ridgewood.

For the first two Sundays in August, we are pleased to welcome two seminarians.  Rachael Hayes will speak on August 7 and Jessica Halperin on August 14.  They are both studying at Union Theological Seminary, and we are pleased to have them share our pulpit.  Please come and hear the next generation of Unitarian Universalist ministers.

Sunday Services Committee is excited that we will end the summer with two former Unitarian Society of Ridgewood Ministers.  Terry Ellen, our minister from 1987 to 2000 will lead the service on August 21.  And on August 28, Sarah Lammert, our minister from 2002 until 2010, will return to our pulpit.  Please join us in welcoming back two former ministers who have played such an important role in our congregation.
