The Pacific Unitarian Universalist Church will hold a service at 11 a.m. Sunday at the First Congregational Church, 820 Alameda Ave. The Rev. Carol McKinley will deliver a sermon, titled "Men, Women and Margaret Fuller."

This spring Unitarian Universalists celebrate the bicentennial of Fuller, who made significant contributions to American thought, literature and 19th century reform movements. As a member of Concord's Transcendentalist group, she challenged Ralph Waldo Emerson, Bronson Alcott and Henry David Thoreau.

McKinley lives in Olympia, Wash., where she serves as director of Washington State Unitarian Universalist Voices for Justice, a statewide legislative advocacy group. She is an affiliated community minister with the Olympia UU Congregation, and received her master's degree in divinity from Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry in 2004.

The service will be facilitated by Arline LaMear, the greeter will be Rosario Kuhl and refreshments during the social hour following the service will be provided by Sarah Kuhl. A board meeting follows the social hour.

Those who attend are urged to bring a contribution for the food basket.
