Upcoming Services

Scottie250

October 22, 2017 

Rev. Scottie McIntyre Johnson, SMUUF Minister

“We Need Not Think Alike to Love Alike” - New Member Recognition Sunday

New Unitarian Universalists (and old) sometimes say, “I’m thrilled to find a church where people think the same way I do!” But, in our non-creedal, covenantal religion, what we think is less important than what we do. What binds the people of a religion together if not common beliefs? Does our non-creedalism mean we can believe anything we want? What are the limits on what beliefs are acceptable in our Unitarian Universalist congregations? Members who have joined SMUUF in recent months will be recognized and welcomed during this service. If you have been thinking about signing the SMUUF Membership Book and would like to do so before Oct. 22, please contact Rev. Scottie.

Hospitality Teams get it done every Sunday!

A great way to get involved at SMUUF is by joining a Hospitality Team. For one month approximately every 7 months, each team provides the refreshments for the SMUUF service, sets up the building, and cleans everything up afterward. Then on the last Wednesday of that month, the team prepares and serves dinner for diners at the Southside Community Center. It's a wonderful way to meet other SMUUF members and get right into service with us. You may click here to download a copy of the Hospitality Team duties. For information about how to join, contact Lisa Cradit at (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or call 512-393-9054.

Automate Your Pledge

Tired of writing checks for your pledges? There are three ways you can avoid check writing, and never miss a monthly gift.

  1. If your bank has bill pay, you can set up an automatic monthly check to SMUUF directly from your bank. It's simple, and it costs you and SMUUF nothing, it should be a free service if offered by your bank.
  2. You can authorize a regular withdrawal (known as ACH) directly from your bank to ours.
  3. You can authorize a regular charge on a credit card that SMUUF can process.

Click here to download the authorization form, then return the completed form to our Treasurer, Judy Telford or our minister.
