m ]iil]i] UUSD HAND GUTTER CLEANING Bag Debris Washout Clean Downspouts Continued from page 63 least 50 cars for Sunday services. The first service in the new building will be at 10 a.m., Sun- day, March 13. The title of the first sermon is You Can Go Home Again. In it, the Rev. D. Michael Smith speaks of celebration as the UUSD congregation begins to worship in the new church build- ing. Much lies behind a congrega- tion's move to a new home - its impact on the congregation and the greater community. While Unitarian Unix;ersalists are well represented in northern Delaware in Wilmington, Newark and in Mill Creek, there was no formal UU worship in southern Delaware until UUSD began holding monthly services in 1997 at the Boys and Girls Club in Mil- ford. Unitarians evolved from Congregationalists, splitting over the issue of a single or a three-part deity and Universalists believed in the power of divine love to re- deem everyone. These two de, nominations merged in the 1960s and have combined to form a con- tinually evolving religious tradi- tion that is different from many other denominations today. Di- verse in theology, spirituality, phi- losophy and culture, they strive to create a spiritual home for people of free faith. The congregation welcomes everyone, regardless of race, physical ability or sexual orientation, and believes the com- munity is enriched by diversity of belief and practice. The Unitarian Universalists tra- dition encourages participants to seek religious truths by actively reading, talking, searching, devel- oping, questioning and building a meaningful theology. It is based on the recognition that people have the freedom to discover for themselves what they believe about creation, death, God, and natural phenomenon, and that there are many paths towards spir- itual and ethical growth. They in- vite participants to explore their beliefs in a supportive community of justice, equity and compassion. Led by Smith, the congregation had its final worship service at the school as members said good bye to the Great Blue Whale on the wall of the multipurpose room where they met. The whale be- came an important part of the im- age of the new congregation- loved by some and disliked by others. Following the service, members boxed up the candles, chalice, the banner and other items of worship and carried them to the new site where construction is still under- way. The night before, some members met to carry the newly constructed altar to the new build- ing. Church member Walt Smith, of Milford, designed and built a wooden altar with a marble top and a matching pulpit. On March 6, members and friends gathered again at the new site to set up the new worship area so all will be ready for the first service, March 13. For more information, visit or cal1645-6334. UUSD had formerly maintained an office at Red Mill for Smith and had used the boardroom there for committee meetings. The church office and meetings will now be able to take place at the new building. In addition, having a space available 24 hours a day and seven days per week, will en- able the church to have a variety of other church and norichurch ac- tivities, such as potlucks, a drum- ming circle, and possibly a coffee- house. It is planned to offer the space for rentals as well. Two up- coming activities are the Service Auction/D/ilace, planned for Sat- urday, April 16, and an open house planned for early in May.
