April 15: Big Music Sunday

Join us for worship this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. as Mill Creek presents its long-standing tradition of featuring the musical talents of our congregants each year at a special service focused on music. This Sunday — Big Music Sunday — we participate in a recital-format service, with performers of all ages, varieties, genres and styles, from solo to large groups, sharing their love of music together! This year’s theme is “Awaken to Love.” We have fifteen performances spanning generations, genres, and greatness. You are invited to come, listen, be moved, and awaken!

This year will feature a special first-ever common sing by Mill Creek Soul!  All are invited to participate, either by singing with the group or by wearing your old 1960’s-era clothing (groovy hat, rose-colored classes a la’ Janis Joplin….).

Ooh Child, Things Are Gonna Get Easier by The Five Stairsteps and Everyday People by Sly and the Family Stone will be performed. Optional rehearsal will be held Big Music Sundaymorning at 9:30 am.  Contact Jamie Kegerise with questions.

Before Service

Diverse Community

Join us this Sunday at 9 am in the MacArtor Library for the second class in the Diverse Community series: Shall We Gather at the River? Religious Tolerance. Religious tolerance is one of the greatest values of our movement. Perhaps our faith embraces it passionately because our religious forebears were so often subjected to intolerance. This workshop explores tolerance of diverse beliefs, both in the civic realms that held our faith forebears and within our faith tradition itself. Participants examine moments in history when governments or rulers, wrestling with questions of religious freedom, created an environment where Unitarianism and Universalism could take root. The workshop also studies the history of religious diversity within the Unitarian tradition.This is a drop-in discussion – no registration is necessary.

​​​​​It’s going to be another wonderful day of worship and fellowship at Mill Creek!​​
