We are a welcoming community seeking spiritual growth, honoring diversity, working for peace and justice, and sharing together the events and seasons of our lives.

Everyone is welcome at our Sunday morning gathering. We meet at historic Bethania Church on the Vesterheim Museum grounds, 113 N. Mill Street, with our service at 10:00, followed by our social time and refreshments at 11:00. Come a few minutes early for meditative music before the service.

Sunday November 22: Building a Secular Community Among University Students, with Ian Wold. Ellen Macdonald, service leader. Decorah native Ian Wold is a sophomore at U of I.  He will tell us of his involvement with Secular Students of Iowa which focuses on four central ideas: community, service, advocacy, and education. The group sometimes holds meetings with the Unitarian Universalist Secular Humanists of Iowa City. There will be time for questions and discussion.

Childcare is available with Steve McCargar during the service.

Youth Group walk-about to St. Benedict’s Catholic Church will be rescheduled for another time.

Share-the-Plate: Our recipient for November/December is the local chapter of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The non-denominational group sessions are facilitated by group leaders trained and certified through NAMI and offer a “safe, confidential space” where attendees can “find help, find hope and find others who understand.”
