Living the Welcoming Congregation

On Sunday, Oct. 5, after the service by Rev. Fred Howard, we beegan the Living the Welcoming Congregation curriculum.   We will meet in the “second hour” – after the service and following a brief meet-n-greet.   The second session will be on Oct. 26, again following the service by Rev. Fred Howard.

“Living the Welcoming Congregation” is a voluntary program for congregations to deepen their commitment to inclusive practices, ensuring that all people are welcomed through our doors. The first five sessions involve Assessment, Discernment, and Analysis – in other words:   discovering what we know, discovering what we do not know, and exploring what we will do to expand our outreach in the community.   Please join us!   For questions, send an e-mail to

Mission Statement

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Valdosta is committed to building a community of acceptance and love, where all people may strive for intellectual, moral and spiritual enlightenment. We offer a place to celebrate life’s passages and to join in social action on behalf of local and global communities.

I believe every inch of America is shared,  from sea to shining sea.

I believe we make it holy by who we welcome and by how we relate to each other.
