Water Ceremony & Ingathering

Rev. Judy Zimmerman, with Elaine Castles, celebrant.

We welcome the beginning of the church year with a special Water Ceremony, one of Unitarian Universalism’s signature rituals.  We will gather in-person at the Rockford Grange and online as one community.  In-person participants, please bring a small amount of water that is special to you for the ceremony.  Online participants, please have your water beside you during the service.  Children and youth are encouraged tro bring their own waters.   We’ll have special music from Irene Kurzweil’s marimba band.  

This will be a hybrid service, with both in-person and online options. For more information, including the Zoom link, please see the September 7th Newsletter (under the News header on the home page).
