Upcoming Services

Aug. 18: Planted at the Gates of Hope

10 AM with Rev. Jan Hutslar

Aug. 25: Joint Service in Barnard

No service at the UUCUV. We will be meeting together with other area UU congregations at the Barnard Universalist church at 10:30 AM, with a picnic lunch at Silver Lake to follow. Carpooling opportunity at 9:45 from UUCUV

Rev. Telos of Strafford writes: “We will gather for a summer worship service of words and singing, silence and sharing, with childcare and activities for children. Then we will gather for a Picnic at beautiful Silver Lake State Park just up the road. Bring your lunch or something to share, a lawn chair, bathing suit or frisbee, and hope you can attend this special day with our neighboring congregations. The Barnard UU church is the only one in Barnard, at the junction of North Road and Rt. 12, and there is parking at the boat launch or the store. *Please Note: The Barnard church is not fully accessible and doesn’t have a restroom. There are restrooms at the boat launch and local store we can use.”

First Universalist Church and Society of Barnard, 6211 Route 12, Barnard, VT

DIRECTIONS from the Lebanon/Hanover/Norwich/Enfield area:    Take route 4 west into Woodstock (or hop on 89 north and take exit one which will put you on route 4).  As you approach the center of Woodstock there will be a “Y” intersection.  There will be a sign ROUTE 4 west bear to the left, Route 12 north bear to the right.  Take route 12 North and stay on route 12 until you get to Barnard (about 8 or 10 miles).  As you come into Barnard, the general store will be on your right and on your left will be the Universalist Church of Barnard.

DIRECTIONS from points north:     Take route 89 south to exit 3 (Bethel).  Turn right at the exit onto route 107.  You’ll stay on route 107 for about 2 or 3 miles and then there will be a left hand turn to take route 12 south.  Stay on 12 south until you come into Barnard.  As you come to the intersection you will see Silver Lake and the General Store.  The Universalist Church will be on your right just before route 12 makes a sharp right hand turn.  (If you are familiar with the area, instead of taking route 12 all the way to Barnard, you can take the North Road off of route 12 that will take you right into Barnard.)

Hope to see you there!
