Upcoming Services

July 3. What Happened To You?
Service led by: Melody Bergey
Drawn in part from Oprah Winfrey's book of the same name, this service will explore how trauma impacts individuals and society. It is hard to discuss trauma, and even harder to face the stigma of admitting one's own experience of trauma, but whether we discuss it or not, it affects our lives and communities. Join us in unpacking what defines trauma, the impacts it has, and the ways we can live with and beyond it.
     Melody has been a member of First Unitarian for over 5 years, singing with the choir and the band, serving as a worship associate, involved in small group ministries, and the stewardship team. She recently finished a degree in graphic design, and is a lover of baking and the outdoors!
