Welcome and Announcements

Chalice Lighting   The chalice is the container—the space where the musicians and the listeners gather. The oil is the fuel—the hours of practice and the life experiences of everyone in the room.  The wick is the instruments and vocal cords through which the music will flow.

And the flame—the flame is the music which is created, as if by magic, when the instruments are lifted, the breath is inhaled, and the downbeat is nodded.  May this flame ignite the music within us all! By Marnie Singer

Opening Song – #137.  “We Utter Our Cry

Offering & Offertory

Time for All Ages -

Sing the Children Out:  Go Now in Peace #413

Sharing of Joys & Sorrows

Moment of Silence – 2 Minutes

Sermon – Mostly Music presented by Hollis Kellogg and Patrick O’Neill

Closing Words -   “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” – Plato

Closing Fellowship Circle 

Extinguishing the Chalice – Extinguishing the Flame by Elizabeth Selle Jones

We extinguish this flame but not the Light of Truth,

The Warmth of Community, or the fire of Commitment.

These we carry in our hearts until we are together again.


Please join us for coffee and snacks in the Fellowship Hall after the service.

Please Check Doors Before Leaving

This is a friendly reminder to all congregants and friends who may be in our 9 Vance Road building alone or in groups. If you are the last one out, please, before leaving, check all exit doors, even ones you have not used, by physically pushing them out to ensure that the latch is engaged. Often, the doors appear to be closed but the latch has not been engaged.
