Parish Life

General Assembly will be held this year virtually again in June. This is the largest gathering of UU’s in the world and is a powerful experience. SLUU regrets we cannot afford to pay the conference fee for our delegates however it is a great honor to represent our church. Please contact Diana at if you are interested. Serving as a volunteer waives the conference fee.

The West Central Cluster of Unitarian Universalists Churches of Florida has been recreated.  We are putting together social justice workshops.  If you are interested in attending one or more of these or and/or you have topic that interests you please reach out to Tobi Weisbond via

Here is something exciting: The SANDBARR VOLLEYBALL LEAGUE has built their courts and have started practices!

Share the Plate for May

Our May Share the Plate charity is Feeding Tampa Bay. Feeding Tampa Bay is leading the movement to end hunger, rallying our community together to create a healthier, more capable Tampa Bay and beyond.

Food insecurity can affect anyone: our neighbors, coworkers, the elderly, and classmates. Many people who need our help work hard day in and day out, but were one layoff, tragedy or natural disaster away from needing assistance. We embrace our similarities and differences alike to reinforce the strength of our impact. We honor and serve all of our neighbors compassionately and free of prejudice.

Please be sure to let us know what portion of your Spirit of Life donations you would like to assign to Feeding Tampa Bay.
