Auburn’s Sierra Foothills Unitarian Universalists will install its full-time ministry team, the Rev. Wendy Bartel and the Rev. Lynn Gardner, at 4:32 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, in an event that is open to the public. Ministers from many parts of northern California and Nevada have been invited to participate in this historic ritual. The Rev. Nate Walker of the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia, PA will deliver the sermon. The two ministers graduated from Star King School for the Ministry, Berkeley, CA in 2009. Each was ordained by their home congregations the following year. Sierra Foothills Unitarian Universalists is located at 190 Finley St. in Auburn. The ceremony will be followed by a reception held at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, one block away at 124 Orange St. For information, call (530) 823-0953 or visit
