Installation of Rev. Samaya’s @ Crescent United
Mar 11 @ 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Please save Sunday, March 11, 2018, 2:30 p.m. to join us at Crescent United for the Installation service for the Reverend Samaya Oakley as we celebrate and affirm the bond between Samaya and our congregation.

Note: Religious professionals are invited to robe at 1:30 pm.

RSVP  Ruth Sands by Friday, March 2nd. Please indicate if you are:

  • Planning to robe;
  • Planning to sing in the choir; and
  • Planning to bring children

The Risk of Calling Rev. Samaya

With great joy and excitement, the members of the South Fraser Unitarian Congregation gather to install Rev. Samaya as our settled minister. We gather with excitement, with anticipation, and a sense of wonder – feelings which naturally come with taking risks. The service is family friendly.

Those interested in joining the choir, plan on arriving at 1:20 pm to rehearse the hymns. Attire is black pants or skirt and blue or teal on top.

  • Circle of Song
  • 1018 Come And Go With Me
  • 1028 Fire of Commitment

What is an Installation?

On the afternoon of Sunday, March 11th, we will hold a special Installation Service commemorating the decision of the South Fraser Unitarian Congregation to call the Reverend Samaya Oakley to be a part of our congregation’s ministry. While at first it may seem odd to hold this service so many months after Rev. Samaya’s actual arrival at the South Fraser Unitarian Congregation, it may help to understand the broader purpose of the Installation Service.

The Manual for Installation Services in UU Churches by Rev. Peter Raible says, “The usual practice is to have the installation some months after the minister’s arrival and to use the occasion to have other ministers attend and take part, as well as representatives from the wider community and denomination, both lay and clerical. The approach highlights the connection of the church and minister[s] to wider affiliations.” Installation services are similar, in many ways, to a Sunday morning worship service.

More than just our own celebration of Rev. Samaya’s ministry with us, “the installation highlights and reaffirms the bond between a minister and community.” Please join us on Sunday, March 11th.

While this comes on a Sunday afternoon in a busy month, we hope to have as many individuals and families as possible attending. The service will be family-friendly, with an activity pack for people of any age (including a crossword about our seven UU principles and ways to get to know Rev. Samaya).
