LOVE IS THE SPIRIT OF THIS CHURCH,
AND SERVICE IS ITS PRAYER.
"Healing and Hope: A sermon on forgiveness and beyond"
Sunday, September 24, 10:50 am, 2023
Rev. Laura Shennum, Minister of Congregational Life, preaching
Yom Kippur is a day for Jewish people to focus on forgiveness and determine how they will move forward in the next year. This morning, we will focus on our own relationship with forgiveness and participate in a ritual that allows us to find a sense of peace. If you are joining virtually, then please have a rock or stone to participate in the ritual.
UUSF Weekly Newsletter
September 20, 2023
The Flame, our weekly newsletter, is published every Wednesday! We cover Sunday services as well as recent UUSF news and upcoming events. On Fridays, we also send a brief email outlining the weekend's events. If you send us an email at email@example.com The Flame will be sent directly to your inbox.
The Aloha Ohana Auction is Only 3 Weeks Away!
Bidding for the online Auction began last Sunday (click here)! You will be sure to find something for everyone, and each bid you place helps UUSF's grow stronger. New donations continue to come in, so check here often! The online auction will continue until 2pm Sunday, October 15 during the Live Auction and Party.
Get your Auction tickets now. Our Luau team wants to know you are attending so they can plan yummy things to eat. An authentic Hawaiian luau takes days to prepare so the sooner we know you are coming the better. Note: at this family-friendly event, children 13 and under are free. Get your tickets online here, or in the gallery before and after services this Sunday.
Again, the Live Auction, Luau and Party will begin right after services on October 15. We look forward to seeing you there!
SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER FOR THE INTERFAITH FOOD PANTRY

Join fellow UUSF members and other community volunteers to help distribute groceries to 325+ households. This is a great opportunity for individuals and families to pitch in and help feed our community. Food prices are high and we are needed now as much as ever!
HAVE YOU HEARD?!
We are creating a new Photo Directory of the members and friends of our community. To make this an effective resource for everyone, we need everyone to schedule a time to be photographed for the directory. Photo sessions will be available on October 26, 27, and 28. You can schedule a time here or stop by our table after the worship service to select a time.
When you and your family are photographed for the new photo directory, you will receive a copy of the directory and an 8X10 portrait at no charge. You will have an opportunity to select the photo you want included in the directory and can purchase additional portraits for your use. Please schedule your photo session today.
Stay up to date with what is happening for our families and Sunday School program by subscribing to the Thursday weekly emails. To be put on the email list, please contact Rev. Laura Shennum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UUSF COVID UPDATE SPRING 2023
UUSF will no longer require masks indoors on our premises, following the lead of the San Francisco Department of Health. We do, however, encourage people to wear masks or do anything else that protects and respects their own health and comfort, and there is a designated mask-only area on the far right side of the Sanctuary.
WATCH & LISTEN
While we meet live every Sunday morning at 10:50 am PT, worship certainly isn’t restricted to those moments! Anytime you need a comforting word, a song that will help you with your life, visit our video archives or listen to one of our podcasts.
