All the Colors of the Rainbow
Pastor AJ Blackwood
What does it mean to be Queer aka not being/living a heteronormative life in 2018? During this month when the people of this nation and around the world celebrate diversity, we will question: “What can we do to stop the hate being spread by our leaders?”

"General Order #3" Juneteenth
Pastor AJ Blackwood - 10 AM

"Juneteenth Independence Day" or "Freedom Day" (June 19, 1865) is a lost holiday. Written out of most history books, most people do not know that Texas held a firm grip on slavery until 1865. We will be asking what it means to be a free in this country as person of color in 2018? Do Black Lives really Matter? How can we promote racial equality and justice in our community?

SUNDAY SERVICE COMMITTEE MEETING - June 12 at 3 PM

SHARE THE PLATE
For the past couple of years, we have been ‘Sharing the Plate’ with worthy organizations whose work represents our UU Principles and the personal beliefs of those who attend services at SUUS. Since we have started sharing the collection on the fourth Sunday of the month, SuuS has donated nearly $3,000! Through this program we have contributed to the work of the organizations: Penny Lane, MEND, Covenant House, Valley Interfaith Council, North Valley Caring Services, San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission, Hope of the Valley, CSUN Women’s Shelter, Children of the Night, Haven Hills, Lucy Pet Foundation, Wildlife Waystation, New Horizons, LA Youth Network, San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission, and New Horizons. We may be a small congregation, but we have big generous hearts.
 
The majority of these are non-profit organizations though some, such as the East Valley Animal Shelter, might be governmental or for-profit organizations that rely on donations for some of the services they provide.
 
If you know of an organization you believe would benefit from our Share the Plate program, please send the name of the organization, their website, and the reason you would like to nominate them as recipients, to office@sepulvedauu.org.
 

HOSPITALITY HELP!
Thank you to all the many people that put together our Hospitality Table every Sunday after services.  This gathering is a time of connecting for members and visitors.  Every week we use up plates, cups, coffee, forks, etc. These are costs of the Onion and although not huge, can add up over time. Can you help defray these costs? Leave a few dollars in the basket at the Hospitality Table.  Every little bit helps!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
