Sunday Services

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

“Truths of Poverty”

April 14 – May 12

Atlanta is #1 in America where poverty is concerned. What are the truths of poverty for us to know, to support us in our collective work of healing this brokenness?

 

Sunday, April 14 (Earth Day Celebration)

“The Poor People’s Campaign”

Rev. Anthony Makar 

Over the past two years, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, led by the extraordinary Rev. William Barber II,  has reached out to communities in more than 30 states across this nation. We have met with tens of thousands of people, witnessing the strength of their moral courage in trying times. We have gathered testimonies from hundreds of poor people and we have chronicled their demands for a better society. The following moral agenda is drawn from this deep engagement and commitment to these struggles of the poor and dispossessed. It is also grounded in an empirical assessment of how we have come to this point today. Today, let’s learn more.

“The Poor Will Always Be With Us”

Taryn Strauss

9:30 am & 11:00 am*

Jesus said, “The poor will always be with us.” Some people interpret this to mean that poverty is a given in the world, so why try to heal it? Instead, focus on yourself and on growing your own prosperity. But is this what Jesus meant? Was he preaching a prosperity gospel?

On this Easter Sunday, we also celebrate our annual Flower Celebration. Bring a flower to share!

*There will be an Easter Egg Hunt following both services. 

 

Sunday, April 28*

“Ecological Devastation” 

Taryn Strauss

The truth is that our policies have not fundamentally valued human life or the ecological systems in which we live. Instead, it has prioritized private, corporate and financial interests over our precious natural resources.

We have a fundamental right to clean water, air and a healthy environment and public resources to monitor, penalize and reverse the polluting impacts of fossil fuel industries.

GATP: Aware Wildlife Center

*This sermon will take place at The Mountain during the Congregational Retreat. There will be a guests speaker at UUCA for the 9:30 am and 11:00 am services. 

 

Sunday, May 5

“Systemic Racism” 

Taryn Strauss

The truth is that when the democratic process and the right to vote are restricted, preempted and nullified, our democracy is under attack. These attacks target people of color, especially the poor, youth, and elderly, but in doing so, they strip us all of our constitutional protections; they allow extremists to get elected through voter suppression and racial gerrymandering and then use their power to hurt people of all races.

The truth is that this power has taken the form of xenophobia, Islamophobia, a fear of undocumented immigrants, and the continued oppression of First Nations, Native Americans and Alaskan Natives.

 

Sunday, May 12

“Incarceration”

On Mother’s Day, we celebrate all mothers, including those who often go unnoticed: the incarcerated, or mothers with children who are incarceraPRIL ated. Poverty reinforces the school-to-prison pipeline. Today we invoke the founders of Mother’s Day who were committed to peace and justice in their time, as we are today.
