Living the Welcoming Congregation
This year, the UU Church of Valdosta is completing the Living the Welcoming Congregation curriculum. We will meet on some Sundays in the “second hour” – after the service and following a brief meet-n-greet. The next session will be held on Sunday, Nov. 23 (note that this date is postponed by one week from what is listed in our November newsletter, to allow a special guest facilitator to join us!).
“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 email@example.com
Beyond Safe Schools – Valdosta
Georgia Equality provided training on keeping all young people safe in our community on October 26 and 27. The workshop included information on prevention of bullying, preventing self-harm and suicide, and local resources for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. If you are interested in being involved with these efforts, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
This event was sponsored, in part, by the Accepting Difference Project Fund of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Valdosta. Our thanks to Christ the King Episcopal Church for hosting one of the training sessions!
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.
