Red River Unitarian Universalist Church is a lay-led liberal religious organization. Lay-led means we don't have a minister. Our services are planned and lead by members of our Worship Team and Worship Associates with speakers from both within our church and from the wider community. The Worship Team meets once a month to prepare the Sunday morning schedule and discuss possible speakers. The Team arranges for speakers and coordinates reflections, readings and music to add spiritual depth to the subject presented. Most Sundays follow a basic order of things, giving a framework of familiarity and ritual to the diversity of topics. If you have suggestions for a Sunday morning topic, please contact any member of the Worship Team at . Come and join us in our "celebration of life and love."

Start Your Sunday Morning with Meditation

Meditation will meet each Sunday morning in the Chapel at 9:00 - 9:50. Each morning is different and might include walking meditation, guided meditation, and sitting meditation. Facilitator: Marla Loturco - for more information, please contact her at .

Month of Sundays

Sunday, June 4th. 11:15 A.M.

The Rev. John Gibbons (VIDEO) -- "Kind Regards - Take Two"
     This morning a powerful sermon which speaks to our turbulent times and our Unitarian Universalist history of the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Of his remarks, John wrote, “As our resistance to injustice intensifies, what happens to our civility? Further thoughts about the spiritual sustenance of our struggle.” Are you feeling conflicted about the turbulence in the country? Are you struggling, or afraid, or angry, or happy? Do you feel included, excluded, defiant, jubilant? If yes, than this is not a Sunday to play hooky from church.

The Rev. Annie Foerster -- "To Tell the Truth"
     My parents, who lived on a lake and loved to fish, used to tell this joke: How can you tell when a fisherman is lying? His lips are moving. Little did I know telling the truth was a theological question, worth exploring deeply. Let's explore it together.

Participants from ‘A Call to Faith in Turbulent Times’ -- "Donkeys and Elephants"
     Every Wednesday evening, for the past 4 weeks 14 church members met to discover ways we can embrace and respect each other in a polarized nation, even though we may disagree.
     On Sunday, members of the group will share how this experience has affected them. We all agreed to share will be a brief video which we feel everyone deserves to see.

Adult Forum

Adult Forum meets each Sunday in the parlor at 10 am. We gather informally to discuss topics of interest - religious, spiritual, ethical or current.

During June the Forum will continue exploring Native Peoples of North America Great Courses video series Hearing different angles on historical events gives you a more insightful, more accurate, and more rewarding understanding of events - especially when a new viewpoint challenges the story you thought you knew.

Children's Religious Education

Activities for Youngsters ~ Every Sunday Morning

Sometimes kids don’t want to sit through the service on Sunday. Thanks to a wonderful group of volunteers, young families can feel confident that their children won’t have to sit uncomfortably through a service that appeals mostly to grown-ups. Our volunteers are parents themselves who understand the “squirm” factor that comes as standard equipment with many youngsters! We have an assortment of age appropriate activities and kids tell us they think the adult leaders are ‘cool’. The morning greeter can guide you to the volunteer on duty for the morning.
Current DRE: Position is open - please contact them at
