New DSD announced!
Announcing AUUC's new Director of Spiritual Development - Reverend Sarah Gettie McNeil. Sarah Gettie will be working with Staff and her committees electronically over the Summer. She will begin being in the office regularly by September 2.
Here is a message from Sarah:
I am the Rev. Sarah Gettie McNeill (formerly Burks--a coincidence that I am working in Burke? I think not!), and I arrive at Accotink UUC from Omaha, Nebraska, where I have been serving as the Team Leader Chaplain at Nebraska Methodist Hospital. Falling in line with my life-long love of education and faith exploration, I am excited for the transition to help facilitate spiritual development and growth in people of all ages in a Unitarian Universalist setting. I hale originally from small-town south-central Indiana and will always be a Hoosier at heart, but have lived in many diverse settings since that time. I attended the United World College (high school) in New Mexico, received a B.A. in Religion with concentrations in Cross-Cultural and South Asian Studies from Carleton College in Minnesota, studied abroad in Sri Lanka and India, and received my M.Div. from Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago. My husband, The Rev. Scott McNeill, is the newly called minister at Bull Run UU Church in Manassas, and we have a joyful and vibrant 1 1/2-year-old son, Elijah, and a sweet 7-year-old cat, Yenji. I love the outdoors, running, yoga, and reading. I am very grateful to be welcomed as a part of the staff at Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church and I look forward to a fruitful year of getting to know you, the church, and the Spiritual Development program!

Summer 2014 Religious Education
Register for our Summer Children's RE Program
This summer, join the multi-age class Honoring Our Mother Earth: Experiences in Native American Spirituality. This program teaches young people to revere and care for all living things. Experiential in approach, it uses ceremonies and rituals, myths and stories, song and dance, and arts and crafts. At Accotink, children in first grade and up will explore together, learn about various aspects of Native American heritage and build their connection to nature.
Children in kindergarten and younger (or as they are comfortable) can join the summer play group, a room full of casual play, crafts, reading and fun.

August 31 – Why David Sometimes Wins - Rev Scott Sammler-Michael
Many times in life we feel the odds are against us. We see a wrong and we want to right it, but the forces allied to maintain the status quo are formidable. Join Rev Scott as we examine, through the story of Cesar Chavez, why sometimes David, the little guy, sometimes wins.
We have Sunday service at 10:00 a.m.
We welcome all members, friends and visitors to our Sunday services. Our Chalice Children (Toddlers and Preschoolers) and Faith Activities (Kindergarteners through 5th Graders) meet on Sunday mornings during the worship service. A nursery is provided for infants.
An inquirer's class is held once a month after service. No need to register, just turn up and bring your questions!
