“A House for Hope”

Tuesdays: June 15 & 22 at 7pm. 

Explore our theological heritage
through discussions based on the book
A House for Hope

by John A. Buehrens and Rebecca Ann Parker.

The discussions, led by MVUUC member John Fahey, will explore how religious liberals have countered fundamentalists for generations and address ways to build upon our own theological and spiritual home here at MVUUC. 

We hope to have a “hybrid”
(Zoom + in-person) meeting space so stay tuned! 
RSVP to Laura Mulroy at:
ljmulroy@gmail.com or 909-226-6446.

 


We celebrate our

Hybrid Sunday Service

 

We invite all who are fully vaccinated and masked
to come in-person for the 'soft re-opening'
of the MVUUC Sanctuary for Sunday Services
and extend our warm-hearted welcome
to all who choose to attend via Zoom

Our RE youth will be meeting on Campus
and welcoming some of their participants via Zoom.
Youth too young to be vaccinated
will be entering and exiting through the gate.
The Youth and Teachers will remain masked
& be distanced from those of us in the sanctuary. 
Warm waves and shouts of "Hello!" are welcomed!

 

What is a “soft" re-opening? We can attend the Sunday Service in person, while embracing change slowly. We are requesting that all in-person attendees will have received their full dose of Covid-19 vaccination and the recommended 2-week wait period has passed. Wearing a mask is required and Social Distancing will be necessary inside our building. You might wish to bring a sweater as air flow within the sanctuary will be increased by the opening of all exterior doors and the continuous operation of our ceiling fans. 

There are many aspects of this 'soft opening' that will rely on our patience and kind acquiescence to help us through to a safe and healthy way forward. Each of us has unique levels of comfort and anxiety about emerging from this time of crisis and difficulty. Our individual preferences may shift several times within each day.

Let's respect one another's level of willingness to re-enter our shared spaces by using a traffic light signal as a metaphor for our comfort level:

   
Are you a Red LIght? - Stop - No contact please. Let's keep 6' apart. 
     Are you a Yellow Light? - Caution - Let's bump elbows, or bow in respect - no hugs please.
     Are you a Green Light? - Go - I'm okay with a handshake or a hug (ask first please!) 



Please hear and honor the concerns of others in our community. 
Here are some of the ways we will do that: 

* Keep your mask on indoors. 
* Maintain social distance between yourself and those outside your household. 
* Leave space between the seat you choose and where others are seated.



We will be serving coffee and tea at this early stage of our reopening. You are invited to bring your own coffee mug and snacks, but please remember that there is no sharing of food at this time.

Remember that a recorded version of the service will be available on our YouTube page soon after processing.

Would you like to
get into the Earth
and help with our
MVUUC on-campus garden?
What a great opportunity for
getting out into the fresh air a bit
and helping with
this wonderful project! 

Covid protocols strictly observed.
