The Open Doors Action Group's mission is to provide affirmation of traditionally marginalized groups, including providing a safe space to meet, and continued work towards equality, social interaction and engagement within the congregation and the community at large.
Our faith tradition has a history of witness and action against racial injustice. Still, we are confronted with the realization that we do not understand deeply enough the anti-Black history of our country and the compounding effects of structural and broad reaching racism. We know that to be against injustice, education and action must blend together in a way that is honest, consistent, and unflinching. We need to listen and learn. We need to engage and take action. Follow the UUCDC Black Lives Matter blog whose mission is provide a space for the members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County to expand their understanding of historical and contemporary anti-Black injustice, learn about grassroots movements in response to anti-Black racism, and organize to be active and unflinching responders. Contact Jeff Kowalski for more information and meeting times.
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County (UUCDC) is a Welcoming Congregation that seeks to celebrate and support the lives, the relationships, and contributions of its lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and heterosexual members and friends. We affirm and promote full participation of everyone in the life of our congregation and our community. Our congregation's Welcoming Congregation Resolution was voted on and accepted on April 21, 2002.
Delco Dudes is a non-denominational community outreach of the Unitarian Universalist Associations’ Welcoming Congregation Program, which provides a safe, friendly, and comfortable, setting in which gay/bisexual men can meet, socialize, and support each other. We may have guest speakers on occasion at our social meetings. This program is intended to serve gay/bisexual men; however, anyone at least 18 years of age will be welcomed at our meetings. The group meets on the first and third Wednesday of every month, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. The first Wednesday meeting is held in Lower Classroom #2, and the third Wednesday meeting takes place in the Youth Room. We also have a monthly First Monday Luncheon at the Court Diner in Media at 1:00 PM, and we hold a monthly Second Tuesday gathering at 7:30 PM at the Iron Hill Brewery in Media. Our annual Delco Dudes December Dinner is usually held at the Fellini Café in Media on the first Saturday in December at 7:00 PM. There is also an online e-mail group for Delco Dudes members, including those who can’t attend meetings and gatherings, but would like to participate in the program and be informed about events and activities. For more information about this group, or to be added to the e-mail list, contact email@example.com.
