Summer Worship Schedule

The Worship Committee has been busy planning worship services covering the time our minister, Rev. Duffy Peet, will be away from the end of June through the end of August. On June 29th the service will be held outdoors at Cherry Springs.The remainder of the summer services will be held indoors at our usual location. As has been the practice throughout this year, services during the summer will be held on the first and third Sundays. There will not be a service on the fifth Sunday in August, the 31st, as that is the Labor Day weekend. Watch for announcements about the services that are planned this summer.

Religious Exploration (RE)

All are welcome to join in RE, regardless of religious belief or church membership.

Meetings on the 2nd & 4th Sundays at 4:00-5:30 pm

This year’s RE curriculum focuses on Karen Armstrong’s Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life, facilitated by Dr. Jennifer Attebery.  Participants do not have to attend all sessions, but they should attempt to keep up with the reading in Armstrong’s book.

RE will continue through July with the following sessions:
July 13: Love Your Enemies; participants should come to the session having read Step 12 and the final chapter, "A Last Word." Armstrong calls loving one's enemies "the supreme test of compassion." Is it possible? If so, what actions would it lead to in our daily lives?

July 27: End of year appraisal of the RE program and planning for next year. Whether or not having participated in this year's RE program, members and friends of the Pocatello Unitarian Universalist Fellowship are encouraged to gather for a meeting to discuss the future of RE. 

See our "News & Events" page for updated information about these meetings.
