The Verdugo HUUT! Presents: "Mistakes Were Made: A Post-Valentine's Day Spectacular"

Celebrate the Verdugo HUUT's first anniversary with this delightful evening of music, comedy, and surprises featuring performers from around L.A. and the world. This month's theme tackles unrealistic expectations, unexpected consequences, unverifiable results, and hastily re-wrapped Christmas chocolate. Not only that, but guests can indulge in L.A.'s best urn-dispensed coffee as well as participate in our famous intermission contest for a fabulous prize.

$10/Show begins at 7 p.m.

Sunday Service: When's Black Future Month Anyway?: Black Liberation & Unitarian Universalism

Rev. KC Slack

Borrowing a title reference from N.K. Jemson's "How Long 'Til Black Future Month?", the second service in our spring series on Unitarian Universalist history and theology will discuss the stories of Black Unitarian Universalists and consider movements towards racial justice and liberation in our collective history.

10:30 a.m.

Sunday Service: Brotherhood, Sisterhood, Words, Deeds

Unitarian Universalism's Seven Principles espouse a belief and a will toward recognizing the inherent worth and dignity of every person. But our membership, while well-meaning, is not diverse. Today we read short works by black authors--activists, essayists, entertainers, philosophers--and speak their words. We can't solve our diversity gap this way, but we acknowledge we have one.

10:30 a.m.

Unitarian Universalism is a religion that embraces many different beliefs, in which people of all races, creeds, orientations, and hairstyles are accepted. Join us and our wonderful new minister, KC Slack, as well as monthly pulpit guests, as we figure things out together.

 

All are welcome.

 
At UUVerdugo, we cherish the process of developing our own spiritual path while supporting the paths of others, respecting the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

 
Is it a faith? Is it a religion? Is it a lifestyle? Maybe. What we know about ourselves is that we are a community of like-minded individuals seeking to do good in our community while we learn together.

 
Join us in Worship Service every Sunday at 10:30 a.m., and stay for coffee and conversation afterward. And bring your kids! We welcome youngsters to our fun and engaging children's programs, led by trained and friendly staff in the rec room while the grownup service is delivered in the sanctuary.

 
If you'd like to visit our sanctuary and community center on a non-church day, we host numerous programs, including the monthly Verdugo HUUT, movie nights, exercise classes, and other community-building events.

 
Explore our website! Learn about our welcoming community, our varied and democratic beliefs, the Seven Principles that guide us and, when you're ready, visit us in person!
