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 ofUnitarian 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

WE  WELCOME  PEOPLE WITH MANY  BELIEFS

 

Unitarian Universalists are people of many beliefs.

In Unitarian Universalism, you can bring your whole self: your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart. By creating meaningful communities that draw from many wisdom traditions, and more, we are embodying a vision “beyond belief:” a vision of peace, love, and understanding.

We have more than one way of experiencing the world and understanding the sacred. What we call our "Living Tradition" draws from six sources of inspiration from scripture to poetry to modern-day heroesHow do you experience the world? How do you make meaning? What beliefs and traditions are yours?

Explore the links below to learn how Unitarian Universalists weave these traditions and identities into who they are today.
