We ask congregants to please arrive and be seated in the Sanctuary between 10:45 and 11:00. If you arrive late, the usher will let you in at the appropriate time or a sign will be posted that you should use the rear entrance of the sanctuary (the entrance from the steps nearer the street) so as not to disrupt the service in progress.

tiny rainbow chalice Sunday, March 1st -- [NO SERVICE] You are invited to attend the service at the UU Congregation at Montclair, 67 Church St, Montclair, NJ.

tiny rainbow chalice Sunday, March 8th, 11:00 a.m. -- Life Purpose -- Rev. Gordon Clay Bailey

It's been said that you don't have to know the keys to success to have a good life. But the key to failure is attempting to please everyone. Join us for an excursion into discerning how to understand success on your own terms with the highs and lows along the way.

There will be a Special Congregational Meeting after this service. All Members are urged to attend.

tiny rainbow chalice Sunday, March 15th, 11:00 a.m. -- Beloved Community Sunday: New Jersey Peace Action - NPT Call To Action -- Madelyn Hoffman and Linda Cubitoso with discussion leader Mindy Thompson Fullilove.

Guest speakers will be Madelyn Hoffman, Executive Director of New Jersey Peace Action, and Linda Cubitoso, a member of the NJPA Board of Directors. Our church has been a Peace Site in conjunction with NJPA since 1986.

NJPA will present a brief 15-minute presentation that will describe the three days of events (24-26 April 2015) planned by NJPA and an international coalition of peace groups to take place in New York City, as well as capitals and major cities worldwide, leading up to the five-year review of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) at the United Nations. The goal of the mobilization is to press the review conference to create a schedule to negotiate the total elimination of ALL nuclear arsenals. This could free up as much as $100 billion per year that are currently spent on nuclear weapon systems instead of desperately needed social programs. Disarmament is critical at this time because of rising tensions between nuclear-armed countries including Russia, Israel, India, Pakistan and North Korea as well as the global economic crisis deepening the gulf between rich and poor. Madelyn and Linda will discuss ways in which our congregation can participate.

tiny rainbow chalice Sunday, March 29th, 11:00 a.m. -- Moving Towards Something Great -- Rev. Gordon Clay Bailey

This is the season of great expectations, for things are growing inside and out. The sun is returning and the days seem longer. The children are outside more and more and many of us are dreaming about the next season. Join us as we explore and engage the longings of the heart, mind and spirit of spring.

This service will be followed by a continuation of the Church Visioning process, in the Parish Hall from 12 Noon to 2 PM.
