Mount Vernon Unitarian Church is A Welcoming Community

For almost 60 years, Mount Vernon Unitarian Church has been the home of liberal religion in the Mount Vernon area.  We seek a moral, religious, and ethical experience as a community and individually, and to provide a foundation for our children in which they can grow and learn as thoughtful and principled members of society. Mount Vernon Unitarian Church (MVUC) is a proud member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) and an active presence in our local community.MVUC enjoys a rich worship environment, a dynamic religious education program for all ages, a wide range of adult activities, a strong social justice program, and a variety of opportunities to enjoy music and the arts.

The Covenant of Mount Vernon Unitarian Church

(These are the words we recite each Sunday as part of our worship service.)

Love is the teaching of this church.
The quest for truth is its daily task,
And service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve life in community,
To the end that all souls shall grow in harmony.
This is our covenant, With each and with all.

Unitarian Universalists have affirmed the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, and transgender people since 1970. We support marriage equality…we proudly stand on the side of love! See the Social Justice section for more information about our congregation’s commitment to equality and our leadership of the national effort to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in the U. S. military.
