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.

Wednesday, December 17, 7:15 Reading the Bible from the Margins: Room 5
A basic guide to reading the Bible from the perspective of the poor, oppressed, and marginalized. This is a provocative introduction to hermeneutics that emphasizes how issues of race, class, and gender influence our reading and understanding of the Bible.

Sunday, December 21, 9:45, Living without Answers

Sunday, December 21, 11:00, The Gifts of Chalica: Joy, Rev. Michelle
Throughout December we will turn our attention to the uniquely UU observance of Chalica; a fairly "nUU" holiday that celebrates our Seven Principles. Rather than trying to fit this observance into one week, we will take our time and savor each moment and morsel. We will weave a tapestry of faith that includes world religions, our Jewish and Christian heritage, and our Principles and Sources.
