Celebrating Easter & Passover @ UUFR

Intergenerational Easter Communion Service

Join us for UUFR’s annual intergenerational UU Easter Communion service (with non-alcoholic and gluten-free options) for all Unitarian Universalists—children, youth, adults, families, Christian, theists, humanist, pagan, atheist, Buddhist, Jewish, skeptics, seekers, and agnostics.

Sunday, April 16, 2017, 10:00 – 10:30 am, UUFR Sanctuary.

Led by Rev. John L. Saxon and Kathryn Reis.

Visitors, guests, and children of all ages are welcome!

Easter Worship Service

Sunday, April 16, 2017, 11:00 am – 12:05 pm, UUFR Sanctuary.

Rev. John L. Saxon will preach on “Out of the Tomb” and the UUFR choir will sing Easter music from Handel’s Messiah and the “sacred harp” musical tradition.

The story of Easter is not only about the (supposed) resurrection of Jesus following his execution and death. It is also about the resurrection of the human spirit–escaping from the darkness and death of the tombs that imprison us—tombs of “what ifs” and “should haves,” tombs of “not good enough,” tombs that prevent us from embracing and living life fully and abundantly.

Annual Intergenerational UU Potluck Passover Seder

Sunday, April 16, 2017, 6:00 – 7:30 pm, Founders Hall

Members and friends, adults, children, youth, and families (whether or not you’re Jewish) are invited to participate in the Fellowship’s annual family and child-friendly potluck Passover Seder (a modernized UU version of the traditional Jewish Passover meal that commemorates the liberation of the Hebrew people from slavery in Egypt and reaffirms the ongoing struggle of all people for freedom from oppression).

We’ll retell the Passover story (haggadah) as we share traditional seder foods (matzah, bitter herbs, eggs, choroses, and wine).
