In 1993, nine people formed the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Southern Maryland (UUFSM). The Fellowship currently has about 50 members and friends and about 35 children, who come from St. Mary's, Calvert, and Charles Counties.
The Fellowship is a shared-ministry congregation, where people support each other and the Fellowship. Our Chaplain, James Gibbons Walker provides us with about two services per month. Our able Worship Committee plans the remaining services, which are led by lay leaders or guest speakers. Our members also take turns in leading discussions, reflections, and celebrations. Chaplain Walker offers pastoral counseling, and shares his wit, wisdom, and warmth.
UUFSM offers Sunday worship services at 10:30 in the morning, religious education classes for our children, a youth group, discussion groups and an adult religious education program, a nature-focused worship group, an active social justice committee, and social activities.
In addition to sharing personal spiritual journeys, members and friends of UUFSM enjoy traditions such as the Flower Communion in June, the Water Ceremony in September, our Anniversary Celebration in March, and a Labor Day picnic.
The UUFSM has full membership and participation in the national Unitarian Universalist Association headquartered in Boston and in the UU Joseph Priestley District/Central Eastern Regional Group (CERG), and is active with the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and our district's Chalice Lighters.
