Unitarian Universalist Congregation
of Northern Chautauqua

companionship on life's sacred journey

Worship services are held at 11 a.m. each Sunday, September through mid-June, at the Grange Hall, 58 W. Main St., Fredonia.

Our services celebrate life, as well as acknowledging the struggles we encounter personally and in our larger world. They honor and use as a guide a variety of spiritual understandings and traditions, including earth-based, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, humanist, and other world religions. Worship services tend to follow a traditional Protestant format with readings from a variety of spiritual sources, singing, and a sermon based on a variety of topics and drawing from a range of spiritual traditions — although we do have services that are an exception to this, such as our annual music service.

Children come with their parents, grandparents and guardians for the first part of the service, and there is a story for them during this time. Loving care is provided for younger children throughout the service, and Religious Exploration (R.E.) classes are offered for school-aged children during the majority of the service. Occasional intergenerational services invite children of all ages to participate in the entire worship service; on these mornings there are no R.E. classes, but child care is always offered for younger children.

Summer programming varies; for information, check the online calendar on the News & Events pages at the tab above.
