The Springfield UU Meetinghouse is continuing to function at full tilt on-line! We have had many meetings, groups and services on-line using Zoom these past months. It’s wonderful to stay connected. At the on-line “Tea Time” I hosted, the ten of us who were on the call enjoyed seeing each other and sharing stories and experiences. We were finding a lot of silver linings in the current changes. One person said she missed being with people and it was heart-warming to be able to see and talk with her friends electronically. The technology has been such a great blessing that has enabled us to keep going. – Rev. Mellen Kennedy
We’ll be posting Zoom links to our services and events below in the designated sections.

“Nurturing the Spirit, Healing the World”
The Unitarian Universalist Church in Springfield has been a voice for liberal religion for over 200 years.
We are a welcoming and supportive community for people of all ages. We value the open mind and encourage each person to question and develop their own faith. We love a warm heart and generous spirit. Together, we seek the creation of a more loving and just world, and aspire to live sustainably on the Earth.
Weekly Sunday morning services at 10 am on Zoom.
“Blessed Be the Children” with JoAnn Gaffron-Hargrove and Toni Streeter
May 9, 2021
Though this service is taking place on Mother’s Day, the focus will be on the children. You do not have to be a parent to know what it is like to be a child You just have to remember! Often our adult self oppresses the child within us, squelching his/her sense of wonder, excitement and openness toward life. How would it be if we gave our inner child some freedom? Please bring a photo of yourself as a child to share during the service. You’re invited to stay for a virtual coffee hour afterward.

Yes, we had to skip last year but we are ready to move forward cautiously and creatively. We are not advertising for outside vendors but Meetinghouse folks will have flea market and craft tables. The Springfield Stringers and Bill Brink have agreed to provide Music!
Sharon Mueller will coordinate the Plant Sale, always a hit! We’ll have both indoor and outdoor plants including seedlings.
Cathy Shidlovsky and Ellen Allman will again manage the cheerful and lucrative Flea Market Table.
Food? We’ll have coffee and seltzers and safely presented snacks.
We love this opportunity to welcome the community to our space and get to know each other.

Friends on the Path Discussion Groups
Have you been taking stock and looking to connect with what’s important in your life, with people who share a desire to delve deeper, with time to listen to your voice within? Perhaps a Friends on the Path Group would fit the bill. Each group meet on-line twice a month (one group meets weekly). We have four groups each of which offers an opportunity for friendship, support and spiritual growth, in an open, non-coercive environment that allows us to explore the challenges and the gifts of these times. These interfaith groups are open to everyone and facilitated by a trained leader and have a set of relational ground rules to create a safe, respectful environment.
Hope You’ll join us as we explore how we can create a beautiful, just, compassionate, sustainable world together. In each meeting, we explore a different topic, including spiritual practice such as gratitude, forgiveness, being in nature, prayer, meditation and more. Not sure if a group is for You? Chat with Sharon Mueller firstname.lastname@example.org or Rev. Mellen email@example.com. Join us: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/6130779853
