Guests in the Pulpit: Green Sanctuary
Sermon: "Is It Getting Warmer or Is It My Imagination?"
Earth Day is a day for celebrating natural wonders but these are challenging times. Environmental sciences are under siege. Safeguards designed to protect our health and safety are characterized as "job killers." Powerful interest groups would have us believe that human activity does not contribute significantly to global warming, however, science shows otherwise. It's time to stand up in defense of independent, objective science. We trust today's service will inspire us and strengthen our resolve to protect our planet and species.

Members of the Beverly Unitarian Church view "The Castle" as our church home and we are proud that the Beverly community considers "The Castle" an icon. On May 6th, the entire southside community has an opportunity to show support for the caretakers of "The Castle" while having a wonderfully good time with neighbors.
Eclectic, live performances of music (and more) by members and friends of the BUC brings a "Saturday night live" right into Beverly's very own Givens castle! Singing, piano, poetry, guitar, woodwinds, brass and more along with good food will all be happening and a fine turn out will help guarantee the ongoing upkeep of one of Beverly’s most beautiful landmarks.
We are proudly accessible.
Join in on this fun filled night to brainstorm with friends or put your head together with neighbors you are meeting for the first time. The room will be divided into groups with a maximum number of six at each table.
$15 per person
Light snacks served and you can BYOB to enhance your game.
On Monday, April 10th at 7:30 pm the Beverly Unitarian Church's Book Club is hosting the discussion of Natalie Moore's book at the church instead of in a participant's home. We are meeting at the church with hopes that members of our larger community will attend in an effort to raise awareness and heal our divides.
"The South Side is an exquisite exploration of a portion of Chicago that has long embodied the problems and promise of black America. Moore brings her considerable gifts as a journalist and historian to bear along with her knowledge as a South Side native. Moore's latest is essential to anyone attempting to understand race in Chicago, or most American of cities." (Ta-Nehisi Coates, author of Between the World and Me)
We will meet on the 2nd floor with apologies that the space is inaccessible. The first floor sanctuary will be in use so enter through the south stairway to not disturb.
The Social Action Committee and Green Sanctuary of the Beverly Unitarian Church strongly condemn the racist acts of vandalism recently found on several buildings in the neighborhood, including on the property of a fellow spiritual association. Beverly is a welcoming community and will not tolerate overt expressions of hate or racism.
Childcare for our youngest is available during services.
All children are welcome!
Reverend Marcia Curtis invites you to participate in a Buddhism-based meditation in a group setting. Join us Sundays at 7:30pm in the church sanctuary. Newcomers welcome.
