The Fall 2019 Chalice Lighter call for UUA’s Mid-South geographical area has been awarded to Georgia Mountains Unitarian Universalist Church (GMUUC) in Dahlonega, Georgia. Funding will help the congregation build a new church home on their recently purchased five-acre property.
GMUUC promotes progressive values and represents Unitarian Universalist Principles in one of the most conservative voting districts in the United States. The congregation’s Faith in Action committee works tirelessly at supporting issues such as, but not limited to, voter suppression, immigration rights, environmental justice, and reproductive freedom. GMUUC is a center for progressive religious ideas and actions in the northeast Georgia mountains. As they approach 100 active members, they are outgrowing their current facility and are eager to expand liberal religion here in the South! They have an opportunity to build a facility that will highlight green elements and provide community access for Interfaith and Social Justice events.
