SUMMER SERVICES 2021
June 27, 2021 – 12:00 PM
UUA: GA Virtual Service Watch Party
The First Universalist Church of Minneapolis will serve as worship leaders for this year’s GA Sunday Morning Service. It has been a model of shared ministry and what it means to put the work of dismantling white supremacy and building anti-racist, anti-oppressive practices at the center of their ministry. They have been on the front lines in support of the Movement for Black Lives in Minneapolis, in the wake of George Floyd’s murder by police and the uprisings for justice that followed. Children and families are a vital part of their ministry; they have been using creative approaches to engage all ages in worship during the pandemic.
Chat Host: Linda Hudson & Randy Burnham
Sunday, June 27, worship services will be live broadcast on ZOOM.
