Services take place each Sunday morning in RVUUF’s Great Hall. Gathering music begins at 10:25 a.m. and the service starts at 10:30 a.m. If you’d like to begin Sunday fellowship early, consider joining a 25-year UU breakfast tradition at a restaurant on Ashland’s Plaza. The group currently meets at Greenleaf, 49 N. Main St. in Ashland, and usually sits upstairs. Arrival is between 8:45 and 9 a.m.
The RVUUF Choir uplifts the congregation with its voices, and new members are welcome. Our Religious Explorations program for children and youth is offered each Sunday during the service, including nursery care for toddlers and infants. Afterwards we offer coffee and tea with social time, allowing you to meet and greet each other as we build Beloved Community together.

April 2: The Practice of Covenant
Drawing from the inspiration of Rebecca Ann Parker’s book Blessing the World, What can Save Us Now?, Rev. Nan L. White will share, through Unitarian Universalism’s history of covenant-making, how we influence for the common good with covenantal practices. This service includes welcoming new members into the fellowship followed by a salad luncheon for everyone.
