To safeguard the health of our community, UUBRidge is suspending on-site services at Hearthstone in Sperryville as the Corona Virus Global Pandemic develops. We will be holding virtual services using the Zoom.us platform for the time being. To join our virtual services, go to Zoom.us and sign up for a free account. It’s the big button at the upper right. When you’re done with that process, just click the link above to join our virtual Sunday services. You may have to enable audio and video on the Zoom app to participate.

If you are unable to use a computer or smartphone to access Zoom, don’t dismay! There is a “call-in” feature that allows you to use your home phone to participate.

Unitarian Universalists of the Blue Ridge - Sperryville, Virginia

Events & Announcements

RE Announcement

This year we are using Kate Tweedie Covey’s curriculum entitled, “Picture Book Unitarian Universalist”.

This curriculum will help us pass on our values through some great books and we will be able to add those books to our permanent RE library.

Youth in 5th grade and up are invited to be mentors/leaders in the R.E. program. They may also enjoy participating in Sunday morning services.

To sponsor a book for this curriculum please see our RE Coordinator after services or shoot her an email to see which books still need to be purchased.

We only need 11 more books to round out our year!

If you have any questions about our RE program please contact our RE Coordinator, Brittany Roy, at re@uubridge.org

On behalf of the entire congregation, I bid you welcome to the Unitarian Universalists of the Blue Ridge.

We gather with our doubts as well as our convictions, with our fears and our hopes, with our failures and our aspirations, with our sorrows and our joys.

Whether you are joining us today for the first time, or you’ve been with us since this congregation’s beginnings in 2008, you are welcome here.

Whatever the faiths you have now – if any – or whatever your heritage, you are welcome here.

Whoever you are and whomever you love, you are welcome here.

However you arrived at this beloved place, you are welcome here.

Sunday, October 4: The Plight of Children, with Rev. Russ Savage

All over the world, children are in trouble. Whether it’s in health care, nutrition, education, warfare, or justice, children are often getting the short end of the stick. Let’s look at what some of the problems are and what we might do to begin to address them.

Sunday, October 10: As the White Mother of a Black Child,I have Something to Say, with Anne Simon

Sunday, October 18: Pandemic! with Rev. Russ Savage

We are in the grip of a worldwide pandemic, with no solution anywhere near in sight. As people of faith, how shall we respond to such a situation? How should we be treating ourselves, our children, our parents, our neighbors—and yes, even those we consider our enemies?
