Topics of Sunday Services for August 2017: 

August 6: Being Wrong

Worship Associate Doug Stewart and Rev. Laurel Liefert

We all want to be right of course, all the time. But fear of being wrong can paralyze us. And being wrong has its benefits: it can grow us in ways merely affirming our rightness can’t. Can we make safe space to risk being wrong?


August 13: What Do Humanists Believe?

Rev. Laurel Liefert and Worship Associate Janet Gillette

Each Sunday we worship with an eclectic group of believers and non‐believers who come from a variety of faith backgrounds. One of the unique, wonderful, and challenging traits of a Unitarian Universalist congregation like Namaqua is the diversity of our religious orientations. This church year will include a series of services to educate us about the various religious orientations of UUs, starting with Humanism.


August 20: (10:00 am to Noon) — Drumming Circle

Rev. Laurel Liefert & Friends 

Join us at Namaqua Park (located at 730 N. County Road 19E (aka Namaqua Road), Loveland, CO, 80537) for a special summer service. We will begin at 10:00 am with a potluck brunch and conversation, followed by a service where our traditional liturgy will pulse with the rhythm of drums and rattles. For the brunch, please bring a favorite dish to share. Dinnerware and drinks will be provided. Feel free to bring your own drums and percussion instruments. Bring your friends and family, too!


August 27: Creating a Beloved Classroom Community

 Worship Associates Angela Arvola, Brad Willenbrock, and Brenda Christiansen are educators who will use their UU lenses to share their thoughts on student learning and school culture. We will examine how learning communities can benefit from creating covenant and by attending to our principles.
