Announcements

  • Worship on Sundays

    Please join us for Worship at 10am every Sunday.

  • This Sunday at UCCSV - 8/11/19
    We will begin a new worship series this Sunday focusing on "The Body as Beloved". We know that God loves us - our spirits or our souls, but we're not always sure that God loves our bodies. If we're honest we also know that sometimes it's a struggle for us to love our bodies too. This week we will begin to consider how the body has been seen and used and often discarded throughout the church's history. We'll wrestle with how to build a positive sense of our bodies as beloved of God and why that matters in today's world. Join us for worship at 10am as Pastor Holly returns from vacation and study leave to lead us into a new way of thinking about ourselves, our church, God, and the body. 
     
     
  • Bodies are Beloved: Summer Worship Series
    August 11: Bodies are Beloved: Does God love our bodies? What might that mean for our spiritual lives and what we see when we look in the mirror?
    August 18: Bodies are Beloved: Why Incarnation Matters - Our faith teaches that the Divine walked the earth in a human body. What might that mean to our faith and to us?
    August 25: (Blessing of the Backpacks) Bodies are Beloved: Using the Body in Spiritual Practice - How we can use the body in spiritual practice so that we can begin to integrate our bodies with our spiritual journey?
    September 1: (Labor Day Weekend and Communion Sunday) Bodies are Beloved: Using the Body of Christ to save a Disembodied World - We claim to be the Body of Christ together so what does that mean if we take seriously the idea that God loves not just the spirit, but also the body. How do we embody Christ to others? How might that make a difference in a world where the virtual has become as important as the physical?
