LOVE IS THE SPIRIT OF THIS CHURCH,
AND SERVICE IS ITS PRAYER.
"LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT"
Sunday, November 27 at 10:50 am
with Rev. Vanessa Rush Southern, Senior Minister, preaching
IN-PERSON & ONLINE
My dad did a commercial decades ago. It is one of the stories you might hear us retelling when we gather around the table which we are still lucky and blessed enough to do. But, all laughter aside, the joke calls us back to some of what is essential to a life grounded in gratitude.
Senior Minister Rev. Vanessa Rush Southern will be accompanied by Wonder Dave, Worship Associate; Christine Tulis, Harpist and Singer; Ben Rudiak-Gould, Songleader; Mark Sumner, Pianist
Virtual Coffee Hour is now 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month!
Following the service, we invite you to join us for virtual coffee hour. Now happening on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of every month. Coffee is not required. (CLICK HERE)

THE HOLIDAY FAIRE IS BACK!
Sunday, December 4 at 12:15 pm
Treat yourself to the UUSF Holiday Faire after services on Sunday, December 4. You deserve to have some fun, see old friends and make new ones. We will be serving a Traditional Mexican Christmas meal followed by desserts and tea in our Olde Victorian Tea Room.
And while you’re at it, indulge in hot chocolate with fixings or a nice glass of wine while you do a little caroling and admire the décor. Looking for gifts? You will find one of a kind items at our Jumble Sale. Check out Fair Trade baskets, Up on Top Cookies and several arts and crafts displays. Make an ornament for someone you love and find other surprises. There will be something for everyone!
Here are some tips for making the Faire a great experience:
Bring cash or checks if you can. Tickets for food and drink are available in the MLK room and can be purchased there by credit card. However, vendors may only accept cash.
Want to contribute to the Jumble Sale? Drop off new and gently used items that are not too big at the church office up until December 2, or drop them off at the Holiday Faire table on Sunday. Contact Kathleen Quenneville at 510-917-5112 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
Bring your appetite! Our lunch caterer, El Buen Comer, is a woman-owned small local business using organic sources. Lunch is $20 for adults ($10 for children) but you can pay more or less as your means allow! Our Tea Room will feature desserts baked by UU elves and a nice selection of tea served by the children of our church.
Want to be part of it all? You can volunteer at the Holiday Faire table this Sunday and vendor applications will also be taken until November 27.
December 11 at 12:30 pm, Fireside Room

UUSF COVID UPDATE (NOVEMBER 2022)
Proof of COVID vaccines no longer required for entry starting 11/13/22.
UUSF will continue with a Sunday Covid Care & Concern Table where people can get information about the latest boosters
We want to make sure we have data so we can create Christmas Services with care and concern for our community. For that reason, we will informally gather booster information. Please respond to this Survey (click here) about your booster status - it will be kept confidential. Or write your boostervv status on an index card at the Care & Concern table and place it in the top slot of the box.
Reminder: If you feel sick, stay home. Masks are still required while indoors and during Worship on Sundays.
People wanted to know what is a bivalent booster?
The bivalent COVID-19 vaccines include a component of the original virus strain to provide broad protection against COVID-19 and a component of the omicron variant to provide better protection against COVID-19 caused by the omicron variant.
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.
