Greetings!Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel  

 

I hope that everyone who was able to join us last Sunday learned a little something new about themselves and the practice of walking the labyrinth.  It was such a pleasure to see everyone move outside and start their inward journeys.

 

I captured a few images from above and thought I would share them here for all of you:

 

 

 

 

 

And the good news is that the Labyrinths should be up for at least one more Sunday, so if you missed out, hopefully it is not too late for you to get a chance as well.

 

That is all for now, see you soon!

This Sunday's Service -  March 1, 2015

Putting the "Radical" back in  Hospitality            
   
At their heart, most religious traditions are about how we welcome the stranger.  Why is this one practice so important to our spiritual lives?  Come find out, and put a little practice into welcoming the stranger, it just might be the best thing you could do!

Leading the service will be Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel and Worship Associate Dawn Fortune. Music will be provided by the Peak Performers.

From Broken to Art
We need your broken junk!

In March we will be making a giant community art project together.  To do this, we will be piecing together the broken fragmented bits of plastic, glass, ceramic and porcelain that we collect over the next few months into a beautiful piece of art to hang behind the pulpit.

And we need to start collecting our materials now.  So over the next few months, when you break a dish or mug, or your child smashes apart an old toy, or your favorite earrings break - this is an opportunity to help out.  Save those broken bits and bring them in with you on Sunday to add to our "Broken Bits Bin" that will sit near the entrance to Cole Hall.

Thank you in advance!
Sunday Services Volunteers

Who We Are

Mission Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fremont was founded in 1993. We are a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.

 

Mission Peak members determine its policies, choose its minister, and support it financially.

 

We affirm and promote these UUA Principles and Purposes:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in our society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part

We invite you to join us and add your commitment to ours. Mission Peak is a living and changing congregation, responsive to the spiritual needs of its members. With the leadership of our minister, we search for ways to fulfill ourselves as individuals and as a community. Joining us is a commitment to this process.
