MISSION STATEMENT

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg, a liberal, welcoming congregation, transforms lives and our world by developing strong hearts and minds, challenging injustice, promoting sustainability, and celebrating diversity.


OUR COVENANT

We are a people of faith and hope.
Together we covenant:
To strive to become our better selves;
To honor both the critical mind and the
     generous heart;
To prove that diversity need not mean
     divisiveness;
And to respond to systems of violence
     and oppression
With the power of a love beyond belief.
You Are Welcome Here!

Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg, a welcoming and affirming congregation that is committed to a love beyond belief!

We hope you will join us as we worship together on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. and at Wednesday Vespers at 6:30 p.m. Lifespan Faith Development opportunities are available before and after church on Sundays and on Wednesdays after Vespers. Our programming is rich and diverse and theologically expansive. We are a congregation that is committed to social justice and making a difference. We aspire to live up to our principles and the affirmation we teach our children: “We are Unitarian Universalists, with open minds, loving hearts, and helping hands. Together we care for the earth and work for friendship and peace in our world.”

Whoever you are, wherever you come from, whomever you love – you are welcome here!

We, the members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg, affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person and celebrate the long-awaited and hard-won right of same-sex couples to marry. This is a great victory for liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all people. When any among us are oppressed and denied basic rights, we all suffer. This expansion of basic civil rights to all couples will strengthen families and communities, reinforcing the fabric of our society with justice and equity. We stand on the side of love, celebrating freedom realized, grateful to those who never gave up and helped usher in this new day of equality under the law.

Saturday, March 28, 9:00-1:00, Mission Possible Workshop
Childcare will be provided. The workshop will explore how we can put UUCS long-range goals into action. Last year, the congregation approved a Long Range Plan with six goals and a long list of objectives and actions. In the past months, some of the intended actions have blossomed. Some have fallen by the wayside. Other goal-based activities did not appear on the list at all. Rather, opportunities sprang up unexpectedly and thrived with our enthusiastic support. Please let us know if you plan to come and if you need childcare by March 22 so we can organize food and childcare. You can sign up for Mission Possible on the sheet by the coffee in the Fellowship Hall or by emailing
longrangeplanning@uucs.org

Saturday, March 28, 7:00, Expresso Yourself Coffeehouse
Wofford College’s Dr. Nancy Mandlove, professor emeritus of Spanish and Latin American and Caribbean Studies, will enthrall coffeehouse goers this month with her riveting stories. With an easy, laid-back style, Mandlove takes her audience along with her on her many travels from Africa to Europe and South America.
     As is our custom, the first portion of the evening will be open mic, so all you performers out there, get your material ready. All acts are welcome as long as your material is in good taste. Admission is a suggested $5.00 donation, which includes coffee and pastries. Admission is free for our performers! All are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for our TOTAL Ministries food barrel, which helps struggling families in our area. See you at the coffeehouse!
