    Sunday Services

    We offer two Sunday Services: 10:30 AM and 12:30 PM with time to visit and have snacks in between. See below for details on upcoming service. 

    During our 10:30 AM service, children ages 0-9 participate in quality Religious Education activities that teach UU values. Youth ages 10+ participate in the entire Sunday service and attend our Heartbeats intercultural youth group on Wednesday nights. All are welcome! Teens (8-12th grades) are invited to participate in teen-centered RE with wonderful mentors each Sunday during the 10:30 AM service. Teens and mentors will attend the first portion of each Sunday service — and then gather in the library.


  • Vigilant Mindfulness

    Sunday, September 22

    with Angie Swiec Kambeitz

    Mindfulness has become the new catch phrase, and when practiced in the original spirit you create a better world inside you and around you. However, has it become yet another tool to escape and check out? This talk will discuss the question, “How can we use mindfulness to heighten our experience of the present and use that energy to be more present in our community and the world?"

  • Little Feather (Michael Giron) has come home to the Missouri River!

    As a Water Protector and Akicita, he served time in federal prison on behalf of the water, the planet, and the people -- following the Dakota Access Pipeline struggle at Standing Rock. We honor his sacrifice and invite you to join us.

    **If you can bring a dish to share, great. If you can't, please come anyway.**

  • Good Grief

    For those grieving the loss of a loved one.

    This is a six week session starting Thursday, October 10 | 10:00 ‒ 11:30 a.m.

    Mandan Golden Age Services 301 15th Street NW | Mandan

    Facing the loss of a loved one is always difficult. After profound loss, you may experience an overwhelming range of emotions. A team of professionals from Sanford Hospice is trained to guide you as you move through this journey.The Grief Support Group provides emotional support in a safe environment for you to explore how to cope.

    No registration or fee is needed. Call (701) 323-8400 for more information.

  • Religious Education

    Religious education has resumed! The weekly lesson follows the theme of the service and always has a "takeaway", usually physical - always mental! Since we don't follow a set curriculum don't feel like you're family will be out of the loop if you can't make it every week. 

    Older kids have their own Teen Space to talk about important stuff. 

    Everyone welcome!

  • Little Free Pantry

    Donations of non-perishable items are needed and greatly appreciated! Please drop off food supplies at Sunday services, by the front door of the UU during the week, or directly in the Pantry anytime. If you are hungry and in need of food, we hope you will take what you need. Thank you!
