Greetings!Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel  


Another General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association has come and gone.  While those of us who attended will need a few days to recover from the hectic pace, I am sure we would all agree that it was worth it.  


Days of being fully immersed in the unique liberal religious world that is created at this annual event are both exhausting but invigorating.   Along with workshops, businesses meetings and worship services, we watched as Dawn Fortune walked across the stage for preliminary fellowship, and supported Rev. Barbara Meyers in a workshop that the two of us participated in about Community Ministry. We also gathered for a dinner on Thursday night.


Mission Peak UU'ers at GA in Portland, OR.


But it is good to back here in the bay.  We have a bunch of very fun  and meaningful services coming up,  and I hope that I see you on a Sunday soon!


Finally, please note that I will be holding community office hours tomorrow, Thursday, July 2, at the Starbucks at 7324 Thornton Ave in Newark.  If you are in the area I hope you come by.


Yours in the unfolding,


Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel

Minister of Mission Peak UU Congregation

Fremont, CA.


Cell: 510.936.1632 


Preferred appointment times: Tue-Thur 11am-6pm

This Sunday's Service -  July  5, 2015

It Can Never Hurt to Ask   


They say that Unitarian Universalists will give you questions for your answers, so it should be no surprise that a popular service in our tradition is the 'Question Box' sermon. Anyone who attends gets to submit a spiritual or theologically themed question and I will attempt to give you my best answer, on the spot. So come one, come all, and bring your favorite big question!

Leading the service will be Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel and Worship Associate Mark Rahman.  Music will be provided by Mark Kahn.
