Welcome

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockland (Formerly the First Unitarian Society of Rockland County) founded in 1956, is an independent religious organization affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association. We are the denomination's only congregation in Rockland County. Our belief is in a religion without dogma, which allows the individual to develop a faith and values meaningful to his or her own life.

Unitarian Universalists focus their attention on human existence in the natural world and universe. Our concerns include spiritual, intellectual and ethical values as applied to the social and life issues of today.

 

 The Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part

 

 

Special Events:

 

 

We invite you to Soulful Sundown, our alternative service based in participation. Come join in gentle movement, music, readings and guided meditation. The service will be held once a month in our sanctuary.

 

The next Soulful Sundown services will be on Saturday November 22rd at 4:30 PM. Childcare may be available. The theme this month is:

Gratitude

 

Gratitude is such an amazing power. Gratitude instantly reshapes our over-amped ambitions, competitiveness and rat-race mentality. Gratitude heals many wounds and every relationship when we give it a chance.

 

We look forward to seeing you then!

Minister, Gordon Clay Bailey at revgcbailey@uurocklandny.org
