Our mission is to be a welcoming congregation of people of good will who unite:

  • to encourage and support spiritual and intellectual growth in children, youth, and adults.
  • to be a living model of respect for diversity and difference, encouraging the free expression of thoughts, ideas, and beliefs.
  • to provide a caring community in which individuals and families come together in friendship, respect, and joy.
  • to act on our Unitarian Universalist Principles to improve our community, locally and globally, through social action and outreach.

UUFES Vision Statement

UUFES is a welcoming, actively engaged community that values all people. We embrace diversity. We gather to deepen our spiritual lives, using words, music, and ritual to inspire us to live at our very best. We nurture our children so they are able to discover their own paths and to embrace the values of love, truth, understanding and service. We bring our UU principles to life through social action. Our vision is that through action, we ourselves will become better people and our world a more peaceful place.
