24 September 2017 Worship Service and Religious Education for Children and Youth

Please join us on Sunday (24 September 2017) at 11:00 AM for “Keeping It Alive” by Rev. Barbara Jarrell.

We are continuing our season in celebration of Unitarian Universalist history, tradition, heritage, and — most importantly — the changing face of our Living Tradition that seeks to honor the past as we live in the present and work to shape a better future for all.

Our “Give Away the Plate” this Sunday will benefit the Queensborough Progressive Citizens who are working to improve the overall quality of life in the Queensborough neighborhood of Shreveport.

They are raising funds for the Huntington High School Robotics Team.

Religious education classes for children and youth are offered during the 11:00 AM service.  Children and youth attend the first 15-20 minutes of the service and then are dismissed to class.

Beyond Galilee Screening — 17 September 2017

Please join us on Sunday (17 September 2017) at 6:00 PM for a screening of the documentary Beyond Galilee.

In August of 1958, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was invited to Shreveport, Louisiana to deliver a speech at the Galilee Baptist Church as part of a voter registration workshop.  Beyond Galilee explores how the Civil Rights movement evolved in Shreveport in the years that followed — highlighting the key events of the movement in Shreveport through the testimonies of the actual participants supplemented by news footage, rare audio, home movies and photos from the era.  Beyond Galilee chronicles a vital part of Shreveport’s history and provides much needed insight and perspective into the city’s role in the national Civil Rights movement (summary from IMDb page for this documentary).
