  • The Shape of Things to Come… For Now…

    Please tune in to this special video message from UUSGS Board President Kathy Mague & Rev. Jason… A few key points: Due to public health guidance, the UUSGS Board of Trustees has decided (again) that large, indoor, in-person gatherings are not in accordance with our shared values at this time....

  • Summer 2021 @ UUSGS

    UPDATED: 8/8/21 – Letter from Rev. Jason: Good morning, friends… Just a reminder that live, in-person, outdoor services begin Sunday (8/15) with a special morning with Joe Jencks.  Joe’s ministry from afar was a gift to us all during last year’s shutdown, so what a great occasion to welcome him...

  • CLOWN-ing Around… with the UUSGS Kids’ Choir!

    Love is invincible! And joy is resilience! UUSGS is a hub for all-ages community arts year-round… even in a pandemic!  We’re proud to present CLOWNS, a movie-musical that was rehearsed (on Zoom!) and filmed (safely!) from February through May 2021.  We’re pretty proud of it, not only for the creativity...

  • Homecoming – June 20th!!

    After a long time away, we’re ready to welcome you – and one another – back to our campus on Porter Lake Drive! UUSGS moved all of its programming online in March 2020 and closed our building and grounds to in-person activities.  It’s been a year full of new discoveries...

  • Toward Gathering In-Person Again…

    Rock on.     It would be incorrect to say we are “re-opening.”  The truth is: while our physical doors were indeed shuttered in the name of public health, our community was never closed.  Far from it. The past 15 months have tested our creativity and our resolve.  We’ve been...

  • Fire It Up! – Ritual & Spring Donation Drive

    Spring is a season of new beginnings, a time of letting go and making room for new growth. Here at UUSGS, we often celebrate ‘letting go’ with the help of an ancient & elemental symbol: fire.  In the past, when gathering together in our sanctuary, we have come forward and...

  • “With U” Shirts! Get Them Here…

    Wear you heart on your sleeve(s)!! Ours is a spiritual practice of solidarity.  Of unconditional welcome.  Of radical hospitality.  Of collective liberation.  Of impact. Ours is a message of hope.  Of love.  Of transformation.  Of justice.                            ...

  • A Ministry of Generosity…

    Last year, UUSGS gave away approximately $20,000 through our weekly Offering plate collection.  While there were calls to keep more of it for ourselves this year – understandable given a pandemic, economic uncertainty, and so on – we did the opposite: we gave away 100% of the “plate.” The result?...

  • Sundays move online during closure…

    Dear friends… By now, hopefully you have seen the notice that went out from UUSGS on Thursday. (https://www.uuspringfield.org/important-update-coronavirus-preparedness/). Hopefully, you are also making adjustments to your normal routines to keep yourselves, your loved ones, and your neighbors safe and healthy.  I loved what I read recently that described the actions...
