About Sunday Worship Services

Flaming Chalice

Typically Worship services on Sunday mornings are conducted by a service leader and feature a sermon by our minister, a visiting minister, or a speaker from the congregation or from the community. This diversity provides a wide range of topics and formats to encourage our personal and spiritual growth.

Our service begins with the lighting of the Flaming Chalice (our symbol of faith). Services may include instrumental or vocal music, a prayer or meditation, readings, announcements, and a space for worshippers to share their joys and concerns. Sermons sometimes include a Q & A period as well as the presentation. Worship service is customarily followed with a period of casual social interaction and visiting.

Our congregation gathers at our Fellowship House for services from 11:00 am to 12:00 most Sunday mornings September through May. We welcome visitors to our Sunday services and other activities in the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship house in Lima. In this small group, every individual is important, and we will appreciate your presence and hope you will stay to visit with us during the social hour. Conversation with old friends or new acquaintences, praise and pointed questions for the speaker, listening and caring, exchanging news, expressing hope or concerns are the norm. Coffee and refreshments are provided by the hospitality committee.

Video-Enhanced Sunday Service

Sunday service (Nov. 5, 2011) marked our first formal use of a newly-installed, wall-mounted video system. Mr. Joe Dunkle, docent at the Allen County Museum, showed a video of Woodlawn Cemetery’s beautiful roads, landscape, mausoleums and monuments, illustrating and enhancing his lively description of individuals, businesses and industries that established and grew Lima, Ohio from the 1830’s. more
