This month, Rev. Matthew is holding his Community Office Hours at:
Itty Bitty Café
7212 Remmet Ave., Canoga Park
Come with your questions or just to chat with Rev. Matthew. No agenda, just a time to connect. These meet-ups are meant to be informal and open to drop-ins. Treat yourself to drinks and snacks and enjoy the company of your minister and other Emersonians.
- FIRST SUNDAY POTLUCK
- Sunday, February 02, 2020
- 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Our social hour’s meeting and greeting is even more fun with ethical eating. So bring a tasty treat to share, homemade or store bought, to show you care. And set up and clean up can be a gift too, when you spend 30 minutes with the First Sunday Crew!

MEET OUR MINISTER
Reverend Matthew McHale began his Ministry at Emerson UU Church in August, 2016. He was raised as a Unitarian Universalist and has been an active leader in the denominations as youth and young adult, particularly in work around racial and climate/environmental justice, which are two of his deep passions.
Rev. Matthew grew up in Long Beach, CA and has also called Oakland, Berkeley, Cleveland and England home. Rev. Matthew attended seminary at Starr King School for the Ministry, and has a BA and an MA in American Studies.
Rev. Matthew loves creating worship services that touch the head and the heart, and brings a compelling prophetic vision grounded in history of justice work in UUism and the wider world. He believes that a church should serve those within and beyond its walls, and help people live lives of meaning and purpose.
