Welcome to Unitarian Universalism

We are people of all agespeople of many backgrounds, and people of many beliefs. We are brave, curious and compassionate thinkers and doers. We create spirituality and community beyond boundaries, working for more justice and more love in our own lives and in the world. Unitarian Universalism affirms and promotes seven Principles, grounded in the humanistic teachings of the world’s religions. Our spirituality is unbounded, drawing from scripture and science, nature and philosophy, personal experience and ancient tradition as described in our six Sources. Get to know us:
  • Beliefs & Principles – our seven Principles, six Sources and common belief questions
  • Who We Are – our history, symbols, backgrounds and stories
  • Religious Practices – what Unitarian Universalists do on Sunday and every day, including holidays and rites of passage
  • Get Involved – find out how to connect with Unitarian Universalism, no matter where you are
To experience the Unitarian Universalist spiritual tradition online through the WorshipWeb collection and more, visit the Worship & Inspiration section.

Second Collection for June
Our own Emergency Assistance fund will be our second collection recipient for June. There has been an unusual need for assistance in May so the fund has pretty much hit rock bottom. Please donate by tapping the DONATE button below, drop a check off at church in Tricia’s file folder on the wall, or mail a check to the address at the bottom of the newsletter. Every little bit helps.

2021 VIRTUAL UUA GENERAL ASSEMBLY
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
General Assembly is the annual gathering of Unitarian Universalists, where we conduct business of the Association, explore the theological underpinnings of our faith, and lean fully into our mission and principles. That remains true even when we cannot gather physically. Last year, GA had more than 4,900 registered attendees participate from remote locations around the world. Although we give up the face-to-face interaction and hugs that are prevalent when we meet in-person, we retain our dedication to community and make our experience more accessible and more environmentally sustainable.
Registration for virtual GA 2021 is $200 per person. Financial support for registration as well as a payment plan are available. General Assembly registrants receive access to the 2021 Online Participation Portal, including live, semi-live, and on-demand video content, the virtual exhibit hall, chat features, support, and a (new!) GA mobile app.  Register at uua.org/ga
