Springfield, VT Meetinghouse

Unitarian Universalist

Worship Services

We have been holding services weekly on Zoom during the past church year and are beginning to transition to hybrid (in-person and Zoom) services. Our Sunday services begin at 10 am and last about an hour, followed by coffee hour and discussion. We welcome people from near and far to join us on Zoom at  Our services generally include music, readings a story and a reflection (or sermon).  We may include practices such as art, meditation, prayer, yoga, dance, journaling, poetry.   Children are welcome at our services; child care is available for those who don't wish to stay in the sanctuary. We have both ordained clergy and lay leaders, as well as special guests, lead our services.

Music is especially important to us and we often include live performances as well as hymns for the congregation to sing.  Our virtual choir, directed by Julane Deener, has been a crucial part of our online services.  The choir will continue to perform virtually at times as well as live during many services.

We acknowledge and include many spiritual traditions, including Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Indigenous, Jewish, Muslim and Pagan.  We include humanists, atheists and agnostics among our congregation.  Many folks describe themselves as “spiritual but not religious.”  We agree that we do not have to think alike, but we love alike.

Please bring an apple, and pen and paper. 
Some words from the poem, "Autumn Praye"r, by Christine C Robinson-
    God of the Autumn, help us to know
    that living and dying are one
    that life is precious, and beautiful, and limited.
    that nothing good is ever lost.

September 26: Purification Practices Ancient and Universal - Are They Still Relevant? 

Ann Marie Knoepfel, Rosa Martin Knoepfel and family, and Sharon Mueller will come together to explore Intentional acts of Cleansing for the purposes of release, removal, preparation and prayer. How do we see this in our own lives? (Zoom only)
