Our hearts are with the people of Charleston and Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church
Portion of a statement from UUA President Peter Morales: “When two congregants were killed and six wounded at our Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in 2008, the entire community reached out and embraced our congregation with love and support. We will pass that love along to the Emanuel Church community in any way we can.”
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.

Living the Welcoming Congregation
The next sessions of the Living the Welcoming Congregation curriculum will generally meet on the Sundays Rev. Howard is in the pulpit in the “second hour” – after the service and following a brief meet-n-greet.
“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. 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 and subsequent meetings! If you are interested in being involved with these efforts, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
