Suggestions for our Webmaster?

Sunday, November 29

Please join us at 10:00 a.m. this Sunday at the Arts Castle for an innovative service whose theme is "A taste of the Essense."  The service will include the sharing of food among participants. Please bring a breakfast or snack item to share.

Following up on David Soliday's last service,  "What is Emergent Worship?, this Sunday we're going to try emergent worship ourselves. Back in 2007, shortly after he graduated from MTSO, David's  friend--an United Methodist minister--started an experimental service at The Old Bag of Nails in Westerville on Sunday evenings. We are going to have a service modeled on those, albeit modified for our UU fellowship:

SOMETHING NEW for Sunday: “home made” music and art, deeply theological, but informal worship, and community conversations to explore various religious/philosophical themes, and discovering ways of recognizing evidence of something larger than ourselves in our everyday lives. This will not be “just another Sunday service”. It will be a gathering aimed at discovering a greater awareness of our place in this world, recognizing ordinary things as images of faith, and exploring details of everyday life for evidence of transcendent mystery and wonder. This worship emerges from within us, and allows us to find our own voices in liberal faith.

Come and check it out!  And bring something to taste.

Acknowledging the Season

For the Holiday season, our DUUF congregation has adopted a local family identified by People In Need (PIN).  We need between $325 and $350 for the 3 children and a family  meal for two days. This is about $25 per person if everyone donates. The gifts are due to PIN on December 10. Gwen will be accepting the donations.

Who We Are

We are the Delaware Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (DUUF) of Delaware, Ohio!

We are a small, mostly lay-led congregation, and we invite you to attend our Sunday services.  If you find the services meaningful, if you find spiritual contentment there, if you meet others with like interests, and if you prefer a fellowship instead of a larger church, you may be comfortable in our Fellowship.
