We are living into a multi-dimensional congregation that celebrates and protects every person’s right to express his or her own cultural and spiritual identity as we build the world we dream about with outreach and justice.
Black Lives Matter
Contact: Michael Masiak
Unitarian Universalist principles encourage us to confront injustice where ever we find it. It is not surprising therefore the UUA General Assembly has adopted the 2015 Action of Immediate Witness in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Our congregation takes this calling seriously. We have established the Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) pages with the hope that information and actionable events will be readily available to the community.
Community Table of Loudoun
Contact: Kristin Harper
Community Table of Loudoun is an initiative sponsored by area faith communities to provide food to people in need and increase awareness of food insecurity. Members of UUCS participate in serving and providing one dinner event per year in September.
Journey Toward Wholeness Team
Contact: JTW Team Mailbox
An expression of the UUA’s Journey Toward Wholeness Anti Racism initiative. Our JTW team is interested in facilitating the conversation within our congregation about how institutional racism affects UUCS and our surrounding community and world. The team sponsors our Annual Jazz Poetry Slam, an initiative which seeks to fulfill our dream of building an inclusive and multicultural community.
Loudoun Interfaith BRIDGES
Contact: Yvonne Centala
UUCS holds membership as a faith community in Loudoun Interfaith BRIDGES whose purpose is to bring together communities of different faiths to collectively address common challenges, and to build bridges of understanding and respect between diverse religious and ethnic entities. Representatives from our congregation engage in BRIDGES monthly meetings and serve on the BRIDGES board. Participants at our congregation attend BRIDGES events and engage deeply with our interfaith partners in shared learning and celebratory experiences.
Refugee Support Team
Contact: Zubair Suri
UUCS is co-sponsoring a refugee family with UUCF. The Refugee Support Team is organizing everything the family needs to live successfully in our area.
