Sunday Service: Love Is Watching Someone Die
Minister: Rev. KC Slack


On this Easter Sunday, Rev. KC returns to their love of Mary, Mother of God, for what in a Christian church would likely be a Good Friday service. Join us as we wonder at what we might learn from the Easter story (even if we don't believe it) and consider the role of coping with death in the story and in our lives.

10:30 a.m.

Sunday Service: To Boldly Go
Guest Speaker: Amy Starbin

"Star Trek" has always been a thoughtful sci-fi franchise, from the original series' civil rights allegories to the New Agey musings of "The Next Generation" and beyond. Though Gene Roddenberry considered himself an atheist, the show's open-minded humanist worldview overlaps nicely with the seeking spirit of Unitarian Universalism. Join self-avowed Trekkie Amy Starbin on a brief exploration of how the Seven Principles "interface" with the ethics of Trek.  
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!
