Upcoming at UUVerdugo

THIS FRIDAY, AUGUST 23

UUVERDUGO MOVIE NIGHT: "KELLY & CAL"


Join screenwriter (and UUVerdugo member) Amy Starbin as she introduces her 2014 film "Kelly & Cal," starring Juliette Lewis. Starbin, who recently wrapped principal photography on her directorial debut, "Los Aliens," talks Hollywood meeting upstate New York in this sweet, funny, and transgressive 2014 film.

Kelly, a punk-rocker turned suburban mom, is nostalgic for a life she can no longer have and uncertain of a future she doesn't yet fit in. Seventeen-year-old Cal is frustrated at his lack of control over the hand he's been dealt. When the two strike up an unlikely friendship, it's the perfect spark needed to thrust them both back to life.

Screening begins at 7 p.m./Rated R

SUNDAY, AUGUST 25

Sunday Service: The Sanctity of Sex Ed
Guest Minister: Emmalinda MacLean

 Unitarian Universalists are pioneers in comprehensive sexuality education, offering “Our Whole Lives” classes that flip the script on “traditional” sex ed—focusing on values like self-worth, respect, healthy relationships, responsibility, and justice.  Emmalinda MacLean, a lifelong Unitarian Universalist who proudly graduated from the Our Whole Lives program as a 7th grader, believes religiously that accurate, inclusive, respectful conversations are the antidote to the toxic messages about sex that permeate our culture today.

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.
