Mission

Our mission is to create, design, and offer comprehensive educational and spiritual programs and activities that focus on:

  • Modeling and nurturing acceptance of self and others
  • Promoting a lifelong journey of education and spiritual growth

Principles

We strive to incorporate the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Seven Principles into every activity and program.

Objectives

The objectives of MVUC’s Religious Education and Lifespan Spiritual Growth program are to:

  • develop a sense of self worth
  • foster an appreciation for religious, ethnic, and cultural diversity
  • create a sense of belonging through participation in the MVUC community
  • learn responsibility towards others and the environment
  • identify with our Unitarian Universalist heritage
  • have the opportunity to celebrate the mysteries of life through worship and
  • find guidance and support for expressing personal religion in everyday life.

Theme

We are committed to exploring the six sources of Unitarian Universalism: personal experiences, the words and deeds of prophetic people, Judeo-Christian traditions, world religions, science and humanism, and nature-based faiths.

Religious education is a life long process. We are on a pilgrimage that is nurtured by being in a community of seekers. As companions on the journey we need each other for sharing our thoughts and wonderings. Your participation enriches us all.
