Statement of Conscience
We, the people of Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church in Kirkland, WA, unequivocally condemn the terrorist attack on our U.S. Capitol. We condemn any and all attempts to delay the certification of or to overturn the results of a democratic election. We witness and condemn the hypocrisy of our militarized and white supremacist policing system, which reacts with extreme violence to people of color peacefully protesting, while allowing white supremacists to commit literal domestic terrorism against our government. As Unitarian Universalists, we affirm and promote the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.
As our UUA President Susan Frederick Grey has said, “As Unitarian Universalists, it is important to remember that our commitment to democracy is not just political or moral, it is fundamentally theological. It grows from our affirmation of the inherent worth and dignity of every person and the Universalist understanding that we are all part of one creation, interconnected. These theological values of human dignity and interdependence are why we know everyone needs a voice in the matters that affect their lives.”
We are prepared to join in collective, moral, faithful action to defend our democracy. We call on all of our country’s leaders and institutions to do the same.
Signed by Rev. C. Nancy Reid-McKee and the NUUC Board of Trustees
Each Sunday, our community comes together for worship in our Sanctuary from 10:25 to 11:45. Each service includes a children’s story, readings, hymns, choir or instrumental music, sharing our joys and sorrows, and a sermon. Our messages draw from many sources and explore UU principles, our shared values, and how we express those values in our lives. To learn what to expect, listen to recordings of sample services. We look forward to meeting you at an upcoming service!
There are many ways to connect at Northlake. We offer spiritual, educational, social and service activities from meditation groups to board game nights, from book groups to summer outings. Learn more about getting involved, or subscribe to our email newsletter by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Northlake also strives to make a difference beyond our walls. Social justice programs include immigrant detention center vigils, community suppers, Share-the-Plate, and Meaningful Movies.
CHILDREN AND YOUTH
Children are always welcome at Northlake! On Sunday morning when we gather in person, our children join the congregation in the Sanctuary, then go to their classrooms after our Time for All Ages. (Or they are welcome to remain with you.) For this year, our Sunday morning online service offers multigenerational elements for families to engage with together. We also have a Children’s Religious Education Program, which uses age-appropriate curricula to connect children and youth to the values of our religion. We take a holistic approach, nurturing body, mind, and spirit. Your children will find a welcoming group of classmates eager to explore and grow together. This year while we cannot gather in person, we are offering virtual/online gatherings and at-home support for faith formation. Our virtual children’s class is at 9:30 am via zoom, while our youth group meets at noon. (For connection information, please contact Margaret Rogers, Director of Lifespan Religious Education.)
