Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockland

Our Mission

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockland is a open, liberally religious, welcoming congregation offering fellowship, an opportunity for free expression of ideas and spiritual growth. As such we strive to support one another, explore moral assumptions, promote social action and celebrate the interdependent web of of life. 

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

UUCR at Pride Sunday

Representatives from UUCR staffed a table at Rockland Pride Sunday in Nyack on June 11th. It was a wonderful, if hot, event. There were people serving in an outreach role, talking to people about UUism and UUCR. Others were helping with the book sale fundraiser to help support Jane and Max on their trips to UUA conferences. Many thanks go out to Debbie Shaw, Sarah Gordon, Rachel Rosenthal, Bridget Lauriera, Kyle Hancock, Zane Hancock, Trudy Pojman and Jane and Jocelyn Cowan.
