Welcome! Our Sunday Service is from 10:30 to 11:30 am and is followed by Coffee and Conversation, a time to mingle with members, friends, and visitors. Our services usually include music, readings, reflections, and a sermon.

Our building is wheelchair-accessible. Please let our greeter know if you require a hearing device or a large-print hymnal.
Our children’s Religious Education program begins shortly after the Sunday Service begins, with kids starting in the Gathering Room with adults and exiting to their RE classes after a story for all ages. Class ends at 11:40am to give parents a few minutes to enjoy meeting others. Childcare is provided for infants through age four. School age RE is for ages 5 and up, wih youth more than welcome to join us.
Upcoming Sunday Services
- “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced” – Rev. Addae Kraba
Mar 7th, 2021 10:30:am
In March we celebrate Women's History Month. The National Women's History Alliance has extended the 2021 theme from 2020 to capture the spirit of these challenging times. Standing up and speaking up is nothing new for women, but ever since the suffragettes some women have remained in the margins..
- “In Praise of Frances Watkins Harper” – Sylvia Manning
Mar 14th, 2021 10:30:am
On the Sunday following International Women's Day, Sylvia Manning speaks of Unitarian Frances Harper (1825 - 1911). Harper's call for full human development - black and white, male and female - endures, as urgent and vital during these decades following the Civil Rights movement and Women's Liberation as it was during Reconstruction and its aftermath.

- “From José Antonio Contreras, for World Poetry Day…”
Mar 21st, 2021 10:30:am
...Reflections and Observations in Prose, Poetry and Rhythmic Stories; mixed metaphors, misplaced modifiers, suffering similes and strained sagacity. Yesenia McNett lends musical and zoom management gifts. Our Share the Plate offering this morning benefits Comal County Habitat for Humanity Women Build. Please give generously!
- TBA – Chaplain Kye Flannery
Mar 28th, 2021 10:30:am
Chaplain Kye has not gotten entirely through Snowmageddon without a scratch...so we'll tell you what she's speaking on a little later in the month. (I wonder if there's any spirituality involved in evacuating 3 adults, one big dog, and one worm farm in a small car over the frozen Austin roadways?? We shall see.)
