A message from the Choir…

A number of gray hymnals seem to have disappeared over the years. Starting Sunday, the Choir will be accepting donations during coffee hour to replenish them. The books cost $35. Donors will have a dedicatory bookplate pasted into a book either “in memory of” a loved one who has passed, or “in honor of” someone – perhaps someone who’s done a lot for UUSP.

Please reach out to any of our choir members or Jon at


Thank you!

UUHP (Unitarian Universalists Helping People):

Monday, January 14, 2019 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Location: Front Office

UUHP (Unitarian Universalists Helping People):

Formerly the Homeless Ministry, UUHP meets at 6:00pm on the second Monday of each month in the UUSP office.

Through the generosity of our congregation, the UUHP Ministry receives from fund raisers such as Stone Soup, monthly pancake breakfasts, and share-the-plate, allowing us to donate to the Free Clinic Woman’s Shelter, Daystar, Family Resource Center (LGTBQ),  Family Promise and Celebrate Outreach. We support these local independent service providers for the economically challenged because they are proficient in how they are able to offer assistance.

Coordinating and   improving the Friday night picnic allows us to work with others in the community to help offer nourishing  meals for the food insecure

In the coming year we look forward to continuing our existing programs working on solutions to house the un-housed. Join UUHPs.

Reggie Craig, Chair
UUHP Ministry

Wednesday, December 19, 2018 - 7:30am - 8:00am
Location: Gilmour Hall

Midweek Dawn Meditation (7:30-8:00 a.m.) for a boost  through the week.  

Weekly, beginning Wednesday October 3rd, UU St. Pete will start adding more meditation and contemplative prayer gatherings to our church week.  It seems that our world is still in need of deeper understanding and deeper caring.  For that, it seems we also need more of the community and the inner peace which promote that  understanding and caring.  Please take time to join us and add some light to the dawn.  Coffee and tea after, for those with time.
