Chalice Circles are a time for sharing in a safe, supportive environment. Circles meet once a month at various locations. The time is designed to enable people to hear their own heart speak as they share in the supportive company of others. Participants benefit from both the opportunity to share and hear their own heart as well as the opportunity to practice supportive listening. Read more about Chalice Circle or register to participate here.
The Book Club meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 pm in the Fellowship Library, and is open to all book lovers. These books should all be available from the library and in paperback from your favorite bookstore. If you have a book to suggest, please let me know and we’ll bring it up for a vote at our next meeting.

Our Social Justice programs our UU members are active in many Houston civic and service organizations such as Planned Parenthood, the League of Women Voters, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, Amnesty International, and P-FLAG as well as many other worthy organizations. The Fellowship is a member congregation of the Memorial Assistance Ministries. We have fought for diversity and against racial, ethnic, gender, and religious prejudice. We have fought against spanking in our public schools. We have raised our voices to oppose the death penalty. We have supported elder care charities and our youth have made bags of necessities for the homeless. We continue to be particularly focused on our Turning Point Outreach Program and in seeking ways to participate in the UUA Social Witness activities.
Our Fellowship provides, prepares, and serves lunch at the Turning Point Center every third Saturday of the month. The proceeds of our collection on the second Sunday of each month funds this work. Turning Point provides an array of services from food, shelter, and clothing to medical, mental health, social services, and employment training for homeless elderly (50 or older). It is the only shelter in the area that focuses on the elderly.
Join the Buildings and Grounds volunteers to show our facilities a little TLC the 3rd Saturday of every month from 8am-12pm. Come for as little or as much time as you can spare. From dusting and weeding to painting and carpentry, we have projects for any skill level. But the most important job is to have fun!
