Rev Susan Moran

New Member Sunday

Come celebrate New Member Sunday! Rev Susan will be preaching on why we need to be part of religious community, and the Headlands will be our musical guests.

Back to the Basics

Rev Susan will be preaching about the intersection of morality and our fourth principle: a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Beloved and local Rockport singer, Marina Evans, will be in the house with her husband, Berna Baglioni, accompanied by Laura Evans.


Please join us for Celebration Sunday! Rev Susan will be in the pulpit and we will have a luncheon following worship, provided by the UUSR Board of trustees.

If I Needed You

The Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, is a perfect time to reflect on where we have been this past year, and where we want to be heading – as an individual, a family and a religious community. Please join Rev Susan and musical guests, John Rockwell, Mel Kerwin, Amy Rich, and Eric Wilson.

How Much Water Do We Need?

Please come with water that has special meaning for you and your family. This is an intergenerational service and everyone is welcome; there will be pew packets for the children, and Laura Evans will once again grace us with her piano playing.

Questions and Answers

Please come to worship prepared to write a question for Rev Susan. She will attempt to answer these questions during the service.
