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.

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.

Jan. 28: Answering the Call
Unitarian Universalism calls us to social justice work. The social justice team answers that call in many ways. Let us share one of those ways this morning. Do bring your life preservers and hard hats!

Feb. 4: How Shall We Be Together?
Our Covenant of Right Relations provides an answer to this question. It grew out of collaboration among members of our fellowship, and it has transformed, a living document, in response to the journey we have taken together at the Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Come learn how our UU principles inform the way we persevere in community together.

Feb. 11: Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch
One wintry day, a postman delivers a mysterious package with a big pink bow to a lonely man named Mr. Hatch. “Somebody loves you,” the note says. “Somebody loves me!” Mr. Hatch sings as he dusts his living room. “Somebody loves me!” Mr. Hatch whistles as he does his errands in town. “But who,” Mr. Hatch wonders, “could that somebody be?” After discovering that there is a twist to the story, Mr. Hatch learns the truth about who loves him.

Feb. 18: Wholeness in a Broken Cup
This service will center on a message of hope that acknowledges and accepts the brokenness and imperfection in our lives.

Feb. 25: The Storm is Passing Over
Conflict, loss, grief–these are some of the storms of life. Sometimes we hope to avoid them, but perhaps we need these storms to truly understand the fullness of life. Inspired by the spiritual of the same name, we will explore how we develop resilience through storms and once they have passed.

Sunday breakfast before services
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.

(During the month of January when Greenleaf is closed, the UUs will have breakfast at Brothers, 95 N. Main St.)
