Here is a list of Sunday service titles for as far out as they are planned. Currently, the Ritual Teams plan rituals four times a year. Our calendar will be the best place to read information about these rituals, which is usually available a few weeks before its date. Sometimes titles change during planning, but the topics don't usually change. Furthermore, occasionally classes & workshops move around. Please keep an eye on this page to stay up to date.
19 - Ritual: Noodling About, Featuring the Flying Spaghetti Monster
26 - Sharing Our Spirits
2 - Forum: General Assembly Topics
9 - Ritual: Four Powers of the Sphinx

Week Three: Ritual Consciousness:
The third in our series of Concepts in Paganism class, this session will cover forms and structures in ritual, and how to get more out of your ritual experience.
The class is open to all - whether you are looking to broaden your understanding of your own Pagan practice, or just to learn what your Pagan friends and neighbors are up to, you are welcome.
The Concepts series will run every Thursday for seven weeks. Broad topics for upcoming classes are as follows:
The KidSpace Committee meets on the third Sunday of each month at Ubuntu Village, to discuss curricula, scheduling, and other issues related to our Children's Religious Education Program. Anyone is welcome; you do not have to be a parent or even a member to be a part of this committee!
On its face, the idea of a Flying Spaghetti Monster is ridiculous. And yet it serves a very useful purpose - pointing out efforts to promote "Intelligent Design"-based curricula in schools as thinly disguised attempts to promote the ideas of a single religion in public education. So too can looking or acting in a way that some might consider ridiculous can prove extremely useful in our spiritual development. Join us as we invoke the Flying Spaghetti Monster to help us learn to look and act in ridiculous ways.
Friday Night Supper Club happens once a month, and is an opportunity for Gaians to get together informally for a meal and socializing, usually at a locally-owned restaurant or one with the type of ethical business practices our members favor.
At the Special Ritual for Business on 27 October, a proposal to move the time and day of Rituals for Business passed. The purpose of the move is so that our community can send a representative to the Manheim Neighborhood Association meeting, which conflicted with the old time and day of RfB. Rituals for Business will now take place at 10 AM on the fourth Saturday of the month.
This month's meeting will include an update on the HVAC at Ubuntu Village, and discussion around that issue, along with our regular business.
Sharing Our Spirits rituals are co-created by the folks who attend the service. Always different!
