As we navigate this COVID-19 pandemic, we are in a unique position as a Faith Community. We have the opportunity to use what power we have to put into action our principles, practice and model social distancing and do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 as much as we can. This is our responsibility to our community and our obligation to each other.

We have moved all Sunday services and groups online.

Wearing your Zoom “Name Tag”
When signing into a Zoom worship service on a Sunday morning, you can’t put on your traditional name tag to be welcoming to others, but you CAN rename your screen so that it displays your full name. This is the new way to practice hospitality with everyone who is part of the online worship service.
To change your screen name, look for three white dots, usually appearing in the upper right corner of your zoom window when you hover over it with your cursor. Click the dots, and a dropdown menu will appear. One of the options in the dropdown menu is “Rename.” Click that option, and a box will pop up that displays the name currently showing in your Zoom window. If it’s not your full name or names, change it to your name(s) and click the “Save” button.
If you have any questions, feel free to send an Usher a message in the Chat on a Sunday or email Tammy Hathaway – admin@albanyuu.org anytime. Thanks for taking this extra step to be welcoming!

WE ARE A SANCTUARY CONGREGATION
Albany Unitarian Universalist celebrates Unitarian Universalism–a liberal, non-creedal faith tradition that is based on a free and responsible search for truth and meaning and the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Unitarian Universalists draw meaning from many faith traditions, embrace scientific reasoning, and express their beliefs through acts of social justice and compassion. For the second time in its history, Albany Unitarian Universalist has declared itself a Sanctuary congregation, repeating the action taken in 1984 in response to refugees fleeing violence in Central America. Albany Unitarian Universalist welcomes everyone.
