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.
Hello, and Welcome to the Website of the Unitarian
Universalist Church of Spartanburg. It’s a great honor to
serve here as Contract Minister for the 2015-16 year. If
you are visiting this page for the first time, please know
that I’m just one step ahead of you, having started work
here on September 1. I hope you will have a chance to
come visit and experience the energy, passion, and
commitment that are so apparent here.

It's my impression that the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg is a
community striving to put love before belief, while celebrating the good news of
Unitarian Universalism: that revelation is not sealed, that human beings working
together can make this world a better place, and that we are all on this planet

Boo in the UU
Yes, it is that time of the year and this
year LFD wants to make it a church-
wide event. Be looking to hear a lot
from us in LFD as we plan this big
festival this month. We hope to have
a chili cook-off, music in the
fellowship hall, and fun activities and
candy for children. Plan to participate.
Would your group or committee like to
adopt a room of fun activities for the
children? Contact Stacey at
