Sunday Services 

9:30 am & 11:00 am

Beginning Sunday, August 12th, we will hold Sunday Services at 9:30 am and 11:00 pm at our new location at 1190 West Druid Hills Drive NE, Suite 150, Atlanta, GA 30329. 

At UUCA, sermons are organized around important topics designed to support you on your spiritual journey and inspire people to build a Beloved Community of progressive spiritual activists in Atlanta.

Each worship series lasts approximately 4-6 weeks. While the same theme is explored throughout the series, each service is a unique experience. With a variety of spiritual sources and practices, music, and opportunities for building connections, Sunday services at UUCA are a welcoming and energizing experience for all.

We encourage everyone to dress comfortably. Dress ranges from shorts to coat and tie; khakis and jeans are common. New to UUCA?  Read about what you can expect on a typical Sunday by clicking here

Current Worship Series

“Beautiful Music of Unitarian Universalism”

January 6 – February 17

Universalism represents one side of our amazing historical heritage. In this worship series, we draw on key songs in our hymnal to explore Universalism’s essential wisdom and its guidance on what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist today.

“Can I See Another’s Woe?”

Rev. Anthony Makar

“Can I see another’s woe, and not be in sorrow too?” It is so easy to not see–perhaps because we are schooled not to see, or we think it’s someone else’s job. But Universalist love is faithful love that reaches out in empathy and sensitive action.

“Let Love Continue Long”

Rev. Anthony Makar

“If we in love unite, debate can cause no strife: for with this love in sight, disputes enrich our life.” Universalism is a free faith that encourages diversity of thought But it is also a covenanting faith, meaning that when Universalists gather, they are clear about what behaviors are acceptable in their communities–and which are out of bounds. Diversity can be no excuse for abuse.

“For All that Is Our Life”

Taryn Strauss

“For all that is our life, we sing our thanks and praise.” Universalism is about recognizing the original blessing of life, experiencing deep gratitude for that, and, out of that gratitude, finding ways to give.

“If There Is To Be Peace”

February 24 – April 7

It is a warlike time, whether it is guns and bombs we are talking about, or combative words. Therefore we hunger for peace, and ways to create peace. That is the focus of this worship series, which draws from a poem written by the Taoist sage Lao Tzu.

“If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.”

“Peace In the World”

Taryn Strauss

Our Unitarian Universalist 6th Principle affirms “the goal of world community, with peace, liberty, and justice for all.” Where does this principle come from? Why do we affirm it?

“Peace In the Nations”

Rev. Anthony Makar

When an anti-democratic, anti-immigrant, right-wing authoritarianism is sweeping over the nations of the world, including here in the United States, can our 6th Principle make sense? Is it extravagant? Improbable? Let’s take a closer look.

“Peace In The Cities”

Rev. Anthony Makar

Today, we focus our gaze upon a single city: Atlanta. All year long, the UUCA Board has explored the question, “What is the woundedness that UUCA is uniquely poised to help heal?” Today, we report on what we are discovering and what lies ahead for us in the future

“Peace Between Neighbors”

Taryn Struass

Tayari Jones has written a provocative and thought-provoking essay recently entitled, “There’s Nothing Virtuous About Finding Common Ground.” She says, “I find myself annoyed by the hand-wringing about how we need to find common ground. People ask how might we “meet in the middle,” as though this represents a safe, neutral and civilized space. This American fetishization of the moral middle is a misguided and dangerous cultural impulse.” She goes on to say that this is a “good people on both sides phenomenon.” But is she right? And, if peace between neighbors isn’t about finding common ground, then what is?

“Peace In The Home”

Rev. Anthony Makar

Often our most intense conflicts are at home, within our family, with the people closest to us. They are the conflicts that bring us the most pain, make us suffer, and distress us. Why? And what can we do about it?

“Peace in the Heart”

“We can never find peace in the outer world,” says the Dalai Lama, “until we make peace with ourselves.” Today we explore the ways and means of keeping peace with ourselves.
