ThiS Sunday at UCCSV - 7/3/22

We kick off our July worship series, Camp Seneca Valley, this Sunday by noting that we are going on a journey together. If we were to go on a hike, we would need certain things to make our journey a good one. This week we begin with examining the Bible as the map that leads us on our journey. We'll have fun learning about the 66 books of the Bible, challenging what we know and learning more along the way. Be ready to participate, listen, have fun, and be a partner with others on this journey. After worship you'll be invited to join us in the Gathering Room for snacks, a cake to welcome Jesse Leong, our new Director of Music and Arts, and some art and building projects. Join us for worship, in person or on Zoom, at 10am and let's journey together!

Welcome to our new Director of Music and Arts, Dr. Jesse Leong

We're so excited to welcome our newest staff member to UCC Seneca Valley! Dr. Jesse Leong is an outstanding musician, singer, and conductor who has served in progressive churches for several years. His substantial accomplishments and amazing talent are wonders in themselves, but Jesse is also someone who believes deeply in justice and strives to combine advocacy and service with the arts. The Search Committee truly felt that Jesse was an amazing fit for our church. We look forward to getting to know Jesse when he starts with a choir rehearsal on Thursday, June 30th at 7:30pm in the sanctuary and then throughout the month of July as he settles into leading music and the arts on Sunday mornings at UCCSV. You can read more about Jesse on his staff bio page here
