UUA General Assembly Service

Join us virtually for the largest annual gathering of UUs  joining in worship. Recognizing the importance of shared  ministry and the many innovative approaches to worship  created by congregations during the pandemic, UUA  President, Rev. Dr. Susan Frederick Gray, selected  the First Universalist Church of Minneapolis to serve  as worship leaders for this year’s GA Sunday Morning  Service. 

First Universalist has been a model of shared ministry  and what it means to put the work of dismantling white  supremacy and building anti-racist, anti-oppressive  practices at the center of their ministry. They have  been on the front lines in support of the Movement for  Black Lives in Minneapolis, bringing spiritual care and  moral leadership in the wake of George Floyd’s murder  by police and the important uprisings for justice that  followed. Children and families are a vital part of their  ministry, and they have been using creative approaches  to engage all ages in worship during the pandemic.  Their leadership exemplifies some of the best practices  for the creativity, spiritual depth, and moral leadership  that is possible when we embrace the work of shared  ministry rooted in love and justice.
