Time and Talent Auction : February 26 – March 12

Our Time and Talent auction will allow bidding on our wonderful offerings after the service on three separate Sundays: February 26, March 5 and March 12. Bidding sheets will be displayed on our bulletin boards beginning Sunday February 26. As of 12:15 pm on March 12, the bids will close, winners will be notified and the money collected for services and items won.

While we hope this event will provide fun opportunities for members to interact with each other, we also hope that it will be a good fundraiser. However, people with no money are welcome to bid future church volunteer hours up to a maximum of 8 hours per person, valued at $10 per hour.

Check out our great auction offerings and make some plans to bid!

Unitarians Stand Up for Trans People

When 11 year old Anthony heard "stand up, stand up, people of grace” in an anti-trans rap from an Alberta mom, he was offended. This is not, in his opinion, what religion is for. He invited Unitarians from across Canada to join with him in sending messages to trans kids. And they did!

And here are the folks at the Unitarian Church of Calgary showing their support.

A Unitarian Universalist and Evangelical Christian on a Plane

What do Unitarians believe if we don't follow one set of doctrines or religious teachings? Here is a simple, heartwarming, and eloquent story that will open your eyes to the Unitarian Universalist tradition - a religion that is spiritual, principled, and welcoming to all beliefs, colours, creeds, and gender orientations. Courtesy of Rev. Tandi Rogers on the occasion of Samaya Oakley's ordination in Vancouver, BC. Samaya was our intern minister here in Calgary in 2012-2013.
