The Verdugo HUUT! Presents: Songs of Hope, Perseverance, And/Or Drinking


Your beloved Verdugo HUUT! returns for its 20th incarnation: a tender reflection on the power of hope, perseverance or, failing those, drinking. Join L.A.'s swaggiest musicians, comedians, and storytellers for a fun show that we recommend for ages 12 and up, complete with our challenging HUUT Kahoot! during intermission for prizes and Respect.  

Esteemed performers on September 21 include Raspin Stuwart, Pierson Keating, Andrew Lasky, Fogelfoot, Heidi Mastrogiovanni, and Matt Bunsen.

Note: Despite the title, no alcohol is served at the Verdugo HUUT—only powerful coffee, conversation, and snacks.

Sunday Service: Living in Covenant

Minister: Rev KC Slack


We wrap our exploration of covenant with a turn towards praxis—the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted. How do we live together in covenant? What do we do to restore covenant when it is broken?

10:30 a.m.

AN EVENING with STUDEO

 


Join UUVerdugo as we welcome STUDEO, the Grammy-nominated married pop duo from Australia, as they swing through Baja and Alta California on the North American leg of their tour. Jeremy and Christine Stork deliver an entertaining evening or orioginals and covers, including the songs of Travis Dow.

When Jeremy and Christine Stork first joined forces in the late '70s, they had no idea what the future would bring, or that their union (both matrimonial and musical) would evolve into the beautiful, genre-defying mix of melody, vocals, and top-notch production which, as Studeo, ​has led to multiple single-and-EP releases, a record deal, and international acclaim​. 

Doors open at 7 p.m.

"A Pack of Rebels"

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

 
At UUVerdugo, we value 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, 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!
