December 28 Kwanzaa Tep Joyner

January 4 Community Organizing 

Rev. Snavely 

On the Unitarian Universalist Association website is this quote, “Congregation-Based Community Organizing (CBCO, also called Faith-Based, Broad-Based, or sometimes Institution-Based) is a movement that seeks to establish inter-faith, cross-class, multi-ethnic and multi-racial grassroots organizations for purposes of increasing social integration and power in civil society and for making civic, regional and state-wide changes for social improvement.” Can a small group of people change the world? Margaret Mead said, “It’s the only thing that ever has.”

 


Goodloe Memorial Unitarian Universalist Congregation invites you to explore our website.

This Prince Georges County UU liberal religious congregation is honored to open its hearts and minds to worshipers from Bowie and beyond, and we welcome your presence at Goodloe.

We welcome you to this place which we love and tend with care...

We, the free and open community of the Goodloe Memorial Unitarian Universalist Congregation, join in common goals: to support each other in our spiritual journeys, to serve humanity, to celebrate diversity, to be in harmony with the universe, and to open our hearts, our minds, and our spirits to the adventure of life.We do not inquire of our fellow worshippers what they believe, nor expect them to think as we do, only that they share a concern for truth and goodness. Those who speak here have the task of presenting religion freely, fearlessly, and faithfully. Those who listen have the responsibility of testing what they hear, not only with a critical mind, but also in the living of everyday life. The members of this congregation welcome the support of all who believe religion is wider than any sect and deeper than any set of opinions.We welcome those who might find encouragement and strength for daily living through our worship services and through our friendship.
 
The Goodloe Congregation welcomes into its staffing,  its programs, committees and volunteer opportunites all people without regard to their ethnicity, race, or sexual orientaton. Diversity of any  brings strength to all.

Goodloe has been designated by the UUA a Welcoming Congregation.

The "Welcoming Congregation" designation is conferred upon Unitarian Universalist congregations that affirm their commitment to bisexual, gay, lesbian, and transgender people as an official statement of the congregation's moral obligation to serve this oppressed group. We work as partners with BGLT people toward equal rights and marriage equality. Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Community Welcome to Unitarian Universalism

Goodloe Memorial Unitarian Universalist Congregation is Named for Don Speed Smith Goodloe,
