The Verdugo HUUT! Presents: Laurel Canyon Adjacent Adjacent

Our monthly Hootenanny in the Hills begins its second year with a tribute to the late 60's/early 70's sound that made Laurel Canyon the long and winding hub of the music universe. From The Doors and Love to Joni Mitchell, Carol King, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, And Young, the music that came from this area still resonates and has influenced artists like Elliott Smith, Dar Williams, and Mumford & Sons. Join us as well as special guests Mitchell Schaffer, Elizabeth Curtin, Adam Gropman, and Carol McArthur in our very, very, very fine house for an evening of music, comedy, and coffee.

Show starts at 7 p.m.

Sunday Service: Who Does 2019 Need Us To Be?

Guest Minister: Niala Terrell-Mason

2018 was very challenging for us as a nation, as a people of faith, and as individuals. We are heading into 2019 with these same challenges and likely new ones to come. What sort of people will we need to be to meet these challenges? 

10:30 a.m.

UUVerdugo Movie Night: "Wag the Dog" (1997)

Released at the tail (ahem) end of the Clinton administration, "Wag the Dog" ("Shortly before an election, a spin-doctor and a Hollywood producer join efforts to fabricate a war in order to cover up a Presidential sex scandal") has just as much relevance now, and serves as a not-so-quaint reminder of a not-so-innocent time. Starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro. Requested $5 donations will be sent to IRC San Diego for immigrants who are waiting for asylum hearings. 

7 p.m.

Sunday Service: Unitarian Universalism Is a Very Long Name

Rev. KC Slack

We begin a monthly series on Unitarian Universalist history, theology, and practice by asking: what on earth is Unitarian Universalism and why does it have such a long name? 

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.
