The last year has been difficult. Early in the process, I had this thought: “This is a community that has a lot of resources. Pull UUCA in even closer, and UUCA will help you through this.”
I challenge you to look at your life without this congregation being an integral part of it and perhaps that vision may assist you in digging just a little deeper.
Something has kept you coming back, has sparked your sense of connection – and helped you be engaged with the people of this congregation. Here’s what I believe: the more you seek to be a part of the life of UUCA, the more you will experience the benefit of that engagement.
For me, UUCA is nourishment for healthy minds and healthy spirits. It is mind-expanding and spherical in its perspective. And its positions on issues of consequence adhere to high moral principles. UUCA has a notable past, a strong and vibrant present, and a bright, relevant future.
While each of us comes to UUCA with different backgrounds, interests, and beliefs; it is when we are connected together that we create a spiritual home that sustains all of us. And it is up to all of us to make the necessary financial commitment to sustain our spiritual home.

UUCA is a creative community that challenges us to see the world with new perspectives and gives voice to the human spirit through music and the Arts. One of UUCA’s best kept secrets is about how its art gallery is the longest continuously functioning one in Atlanta history. In 1966, when our present building opened, we held […]
UUCA people have a passion for social and economic justice. Recently, UUCA members Barnara Burnham and Laura Murvartian attended the first Immigrants’ Rights Lobby Day, hosted by the ACLU of Georgia. About this, Barbara says, “It was very well organized and went well. I was especially impressed with the presentation on lobbying. We were given […]
UUCA is a loving community that provides support and care. People experienced this at the recent Familes Together New Year’s Eve event at UUCA. Writes Melissa Marion-Landais, “We showed up tired only one day after traveling back to the USA … all tired and crabby, but excited for our young kids to get a taste of […]
