Worship & Past Reflections
We gather together in spiritual community because we need constant reminders of what matters most in life. In a world of heartbreak and dehumanization, our congregations and communities call us to our better selves. We learn to live with more wisdom, more connection, and more compassion.
Our Worship Services are weekly reflections that weave together our own thoughts and experiences with music, beauty, poetry, and words that both comfort and challenge. Our programs for all ages inspire us, and awaken us to our capacities to make a difference in our own lives and in the world.
We are inspired not just by religious sources but by the people with whom we journey: the diverse and spirited Unitarian Universalists.
Our Sunday services are a mix of:
- Monthly reflections from Reverend Kent Mayfield
- Monthly reflections from Samuel Felderman, graduate of the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary
- Lay-led services and reflections
- Guest speakers
Our congregation is committed to inviting speakers from area nonprofits, small businesses, the arts, and social justice organizations as well as Judaism, Islam, and other religious traditions. Past speakers include Alan Garfield, Leslie Shalabi, Don Koppes, Megan Ruiz, Alex Baum, Jillayne Pinchuk, Mike Mbanza, and Rick Mihm as well as organizations including Hope House, Path of Hope Immigration Services, Temple Beth El, Hospice, Resources Unite, Tri-State Islamic Center, Dubuque Rescue Mission, Presentation Lantern Center, and Catholic Charities Jail and Prison Ministry.
