Our denomination has its roots in Christianity with distinctive messages on both the Unitarian and Universalist side. Many UUs were raised Christian but put aside this faith or have unresolved conflict from their experience. Is Christianity a part of our past, or is there value in the Christian message for contemporary UUs? This Sunday we explore our Christian roots and hear and the words of contemporary UU Christians.
We meet at a new location at the new time of 10:15 a.m.
Just a mile away from our church, this will be our home away from home during the major expansion and renovation work at our main building, which we are excited about!
For about a year we will be having services at the Sierra Arden United Church of Christ (Congregational) Church, 890 Morse Avenue, at the corner of Morse and Northrop. Our service begins at 10:15 a.m. in their sanctuary, and Religious Education and Nursery Care also will take place also at 10:15 a.m.
Refreshments and conversation will follow in their kitchen and social hall. Please plan to join us, and come a little early on your first visit. There is parking at the church and across the street at the Adult Education Center.
Unitarian Universalist congregations encourage spiritual growth in a community of diverse religious beliefs and practices. You are welcome to explore your spiritual depths, pursue your sense of purpose, and consider your ethical questions--along with the rest of us. You are welcome here, whatever your faith background or your absence of one.
We search for hope and meaning in life.
What you won’t find here at UUSS are people who have all the answers. You won’t find people who have it all together or have life all figured out. Like you, we try to do the best we can. We find it helps us by coming together. We learn together and help out, we sing and listen, we grieve at sad news and provide caring and support. We celebrate and have fun together, and we eat quite a few meals together.
We try to make the world a better place by reaching out beyond our church walls to explore, give, serve, help out, and make our values and our voices heard in this region, in the State of California, and in the nation and world. You are welcome to participate.
We are a welcoming congregation, including the human varieties of gender identity, sexual orientation, cultural and ethnic background, family situation, and citizenship or immigration status—as well as varieties of religious perspective. We build community and friendship across the generations. Indeed, congregations are one of the rare places anymore where people of all ages come together to build community.
We invite you to get to know us a little better also. Consider attending a Sunday service or other program. After you check out this web site and read more about us, be in touch.
Yours in service,
Rev. Roger Jones
