Upcoming Sunday Services
"Recognition, Moving Up and Lessons for the Future"
Director of Religious Education and RE Team
Taking our cue from this year's General Assembly theme, The Power of We, this RE is inspiring as we hear from classroom helpers and participants about what we do in the classroom. We will honor all those who have served the UUUF RE program this year and congratulate all those who have taken part. We will also recognize those moving forward to a new level and new identity. Join us as “We learn, We laugh and We appreciate!”
“Our Mother’s would NOT Be Quiet”
Rabbi Steven W. Engel
Anti-Semitism is raising its always ugly head in numerous locales and in many horrific ways. According to the ADL (Anti-Defamation League), there was a 57% increase in antisemitic incidents and online harassment in 2017 – the largest increase on record and the second increase since the organization began tracking the data in 1979. Has antisemitism become normalized and accepted as free speech? And if so, what are we going to do about it? Rabbi Steven W. Engel, Sr. Rabbi of the Congregation of Reform Judaism and one of the Three Wise Guys, returns to our pulpit to guide us in understanding, rejecting, and standing up to this ugliness.
"Inquiring Minds: Is God in our Genes?”
Roy Scherer & Steve Hall
Inquiring Minds is the name of UUUF’s Sunday morning adult discussion group. Every Sunday, before service, topics are presented and discussed with respect and attentive listening. This morning, Roy and Steve will lead the congregation in typical IM style. The topic: Are humans genetically programmed for a belief in God? Join us for what is sure to be a lively topic and participatory discussion.
Rev. Bryan Fulwider
In an age of hate speech run rampant, we must be people of light and hope. As we witness the rise of white supremacist hate in America, we must counter that at every turn and in every way possible. What we can do and what we MUST do: that is the conversation we will have today, led by the insightful perspectives of the Rev. Bryan Fulwider, President of Central FL’s Interfaith Council, one of the Three Wise Guys, and a favorite and frequent guest in our pulpit.
Every Sunday, UUUS offers:
- Sunday Service at 10:30 a.m.
- Childcare for infants on up beginning at 9 a.m.
- Adult Religious Education "Inquiring Minds" at 9 a.m.

We are a "lay-led" congregation with a different speaker every Sunday morning. We hear from a wide variety of academic, spiritual, and social justice speakers. Our Sunday Services are designed to illuminate different spiritual paths and strengthen our sense of self, family, and community.
