for Wonderful Wednesday Activities
We are members and friends of the UUCS who are anywhere from age 18 to age 40. We’re single or coupled, straight and gay, with or without kids-who are looking for ways to connect, to be of service, have fun, and to answer life’s questions. Does that sound like you?

Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg
Our LFD Director
Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg! We hope you will find something in our worship experiences, faith development programs, and fellowship times that will both nurture your spirit and help you find ways to be of service in this religious community.
When we say “come as you are” we are not just speaking about the way you dress. Our first Principle is affirming the “inherent dignity and worth of every person.” Come with your doubts about religion and your curiosity about the Holy. You will be greeted enthusiastically at the door and welcomed.
Sunday mornings are full of energy, beginning at 9:45 a.m. with classes for adults and activities for children. Worship begins at 11:00 a.m. Coffee and conversation in the Fellowship Hall happens both before and after the worship service. Often there are classes or workshops after the service.
Wednesday evenings are Wonderful too. We gather for Vespers at 6:35 p.m. At 7:00 p.m. classes and groups begin. Programs are planned for Youth and Children.
Excitement and energy are building as this church envisions the near future. The spirit of love is evident each time we gather. Many of us have found here a religious home like no other church in Spartanburg: one that is radically inclusive in theology and diverse in people.
See you in church.

9:45 Adult Forum
This month’s topic will be the country of Cambodia in Southeast Asia. We will show some videos and pictures from recent visitors and discuss the Ancient Kingdom of Ankor Wat, some modern politics and trends, the Torture Chambers and Killing Fields, and the residual effects of the Vietnam War. We will also discuss who were the people selected for elimination and why. Please join us on the fourth Sunday morning, May 26, at 9:45 a.m. in Room 5 as we see and discuss one of the most beautiful and historic countries on earth and one of the most shocking events of out time. This forum should be titled, “Beauty and the Beast,” but I think that title has already been used. Please come and join us as we explore Cambodia in pictures and ideas.
9:45 All Aboard for Children meets in Room 6. This month is all about religious education and we will be focusing on activities around the flaming chalice, our seven principles, and our sources.

What Does It Mean to Be a Friend of the Church?
One of the advantages that comes with being a friend or member of the church is access to the members-and-friends-only section of the website, where you can see the pictorial directory, birthday lists, and joys and concerns, among other items of interest. You should visit at least three times before deciding to become a friend. There is a sign-up sheet for a red name tag on the visitors table. Signing up means that you have the desire to become a friend. Becoming a friend is defined by a commitment to active involvement in church life. financial support (as able) and participation in the annual pledge campaign, and a desire to be listed in the UUCS directory (optional) and receive the Happenings (optional).
