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

“Beautiful Music of Unitarian Universalism”

Holiday Services 

December 30, 2018: Labyrinth Walk

10:00 am – Noon

As 2018 gives way to 2019, you are invited to walk UUCA’s labyrinth. Drop in any time between 10am-noon. While you are waiting your turn to walk the labyrinth, check out four different stations that we’ll have set up in the building. At the first, there will be inspiring readings for you to reflect on. At the second station, you can read more about labyrinths and learn some pointers on how to make your experience special. At the third station, you can light a candle to remember loved ones or honor a turning point in your life. At the fourth station, you will find special slips of paper that dissolve in water. Write down something you’d like to let go of, and experience healing as you see the paper dissolve before your eyes. Come to UUCA on January 1 and start the new year off right with a spiritually moving and invigorating experience

“What Wondrous Love Is This?”

Rev. Anthony Makar

“What wondrous love is this, that brings my heart such bliss, and takes away the pain of my soul…” Universalism has been singing this for hundreds of years now. Let’s explore this rich history today.

“I Am That Great and Fiery Force”

Rev. Anthony Makar

“I am that great and fiery force, sparkling in everything that lives…” Over the course of hundreds of years, Universalism has evolved. Let’s take a closer look.

“We’ll Build a Land”

Rev. Anthony Makar

“We’ll build a land where we bind up the broken, we’ll build a land where the captives go free…” On this MLK weekend, we explore how Universalism calls us out of a focus on our individual concerns and challenges us to grow beyond ourselves.

“Be That Guide”

Taryn Strauss

“Be that guide whom love sustains … show the path that life should go…” As we reach out to others in love, and they step towards us in hope, Universalism reminds us that our duty is only beginning. We must not abandon people in the deep end of the pool of life. We must be faithful guides to those who seek.

“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.
