Nov. 28 Service in Our Sanctuary

DDUUC will once again meet for our service in the building at 39 Park Street, Bordentown, for the second time since shutting down because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Last week, a member graciously contributed her cell phone data to stream the service over Zoom, but halted it when no members appeared. The Board of Trustees is working to provide a livestream version of our services, but it will be available at a later date. Thank you for your patience at this difficult time.

First service back following Covid-19

DDUUC will be meeting in person today, Sunday, Nov. 19, at our sanctuary, 39 Park St. Bordentown, NJ, 08505. The service will be available over Zoom at the usual account 819-313-1486 uuchurch. This is our first time offering a hybrid service, so please be patient if there are technical difficulties. Thank you for your consideration.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS AND ATTENDANCE RESTRICTIONS

  • All adult attendees at in-person Sunday Service are required to bring and show proof
    of vaccination for entry. Unvaccinated adults are requested to attend remotely as
    available.
  • Children under 12, who are ineligible for vaccination, are welcome at in-person
    services and Religious Education.
  • All adults and children must bring and wear a face covering at all times inside the
    building.
  • Hand sanitizer is available at the door.
  • Attendees must practice social distancing in all seating areas. In-person capacity will
    therefore be limited.
  • There will be no food or drink inside the building. Coffee Hour is suspended. Weather
    permitting, attendees are encouraged to socialize outdoors following the conclusion of
    Sunday Service.
  • Every effort is being made to ensure in-person Sunday Services are also streamed
    live over ZOOM. Audio quality and a stable connection are challenges we are working
    to overcome so we can provide a worthwhile experience for remote attendees. The first
    two in-person services (November 21 and 28) may not be the best quality over ZOOM
    as we troubleshoot technical hurdles, but we hope to have a stable streaming setup
    before December meetings.

Nov. 14 Service

November 14 – Rev. Larry Smith – “Who Are We?”

What makes someone a Unitarian Universalist? Is it the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Purpose and Principles? Is it something else? Reflections on our identity from thirty-two years as a Unitarian Universalist and twenty-two years as a Unitarian Universalist minister. No conclusive answer to be given. Disagreement expected.

Come. Listen. Discuss.

Nov. 7 Service

“The Gift of Abundance”

Rev. Mary Doane and Sylvia Foster, “Gift of Abundance.” We are witnessing a transformation – away from the myth of scarcity, which currently forms the basis of our U.S. economic system – toward the bounty we can see with our own eyes is humanity’s new role on planet earth since the virus — what do we deem sacred – and how do we care for one another? The teachings of constant competition and unlimited consumerism are being examined now, and we ask ourselves, “How might our human gifts go toward healing and building better lives for us all?” Please join this duo in their use of music to guide their service.

Return to In-Person Services

Beginning in November, DDUUC will host two (2) in-person Sunday Services per month at the church and two services remotely on ZOOM. In-person Sunday Services will be determined on a month-to-month basis, to be communicated to the congregation via email in advance. The Sunday Service status will always be available on the DDUUC calendar.

SUNDAY SERVICES IN NOVEMBER
The first two Sunday Services (November 7 and November 14) will continue remotely on ZOOM. The last two Sundays in November (November 21 and 28) will be held in-person at 39 Park Street.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS AND ATTENDANCE RESTRICTIONS
– All adult attendees at in-person Sunday Service are required to bring and show proof of vaccination for entry. Unvaccinated adults are requested to attend remotely as available.
– Children under 12, who are ineligible for vaccination, are welcome at in-person services and Religious Education.
– All adults and children must bring and wear a face covering at all times inside the building.
– Hand sanitizer is available at the door.
– Attendees must practice social distancing in all seating areas. In-person capacity will therefore be limited.
– There will be no food or drink inside the building. Coffee Hour is suspended. Weather permitting, attendees are encouraged to socialize outdoors following the conclusion of Sunday Service.
– Every effort is being made to ensure in-person Sunday Services are also streamed live over ZOOM.

The first two in-person services (November 21 and 28) may not be the best quality over ZOOM as we troubleshoot technical hurdles, but we hope to have a stable streaming setup before December meetings.

The Board continues to discuss potential ways to clearly broadcast in-person services over ZOOM while allowing remote attendees to fully participate in the service. If you have suggestions or resources, or would like to volunteer to assist with the technology and/or logistics of streaming in-person services via ZOOM (we need audio/video volunteers for onsite setup and stream monitoring as well as remote volunteers to join a test ZOOM meeting and give us feedback on audio/video quality) please contact John at jmuso105@aol.com
