"Your Voice in the Mission of First Unitarian"
What are the enduring, timeless values which guide us? What difference do we make as a church, and for whom do we make it? Using a process developed by Unity Church Unitarian in Minneapolis, we will engage in a structured conversation to uncover our values and arrive at mission statements for First Unitarian.  This will be a highly interactive service.  All are welcome and encouraged to participate. Steve Knox is the worship leader.
