Worship and Music

We gather for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM.  Our services vary from Sunday to Sunday. Most last about an hour. Brief words of welcome and announcement mark the start of the service.  Worship begins with the lighting of the chalice, the symbol of Unitarian Universalism.  

The sermon usually is delivered by our minister, Rev. Eric Posa,  or by our occasional lay and guest preachers. We uses stories, myths and poems, as well as scripture from a variety of world religions.

There is a special time of sharing that we call "Joys and Sorrows." Any and all are invited to share the important events in our lives or ask for the thoughts and prayers of this community.

At the end of the service we provide an opportunity for worshipers to share their financial resources with the congregation and other non-profit organizations working to make the world a better place. 

During Worship services and our religious education periods, we offer child care for infants and toddlers (provided by adults who have successfully passed a criminal background check).

Music

At the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Brazos Valley, music is an integral part of worship. We sing a wide range of traditional and contemporary songs, using gender-inclusive language. On a given Sunday at our church services you might hear traditional or contemporary hymns, and the next Sunday the music might be jazz, pop, gospel, folk, or classical.

Our church is blessed with many talented musicians, and they are generous in offering those talents to our appreciative congregation.
