Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Stanislaus County

Welcome
W E L C O M E

Welcome! Unitarian Universalism is a unique denomination, because we have different beliefs about the nature of God. We have a set of common principles, which focus on action, not beliefs. Our Beliefs page has more about our beliefs and our principles. Curious? Our Frequently Asked Questions page has some answers. Our site has these main sections:
About Us: A sub-directory for pages specific to our congregation; contacts, history, committees, tours ... Rev. Joseph Cherry: Biography and Sermons.
Newcomers: a welcome, then links to FAQ, our Map and more. Sunday Services: Times and topics.

Ministerial Search Committee progress reports.


Adult Classes and Groups: Artists, Buddhists, Women ... Adults who meet on a regular basis. Beliefs: Most of the rumors about us are not true.
Calendar and News: (News has pictures.) Children: Classes and child care.
Faith in Action and our Social Action Council: We work for a better world. Guest Sermons: From visiting clergy and lay people; scientists, artists, poets and teachers.
Links: To sites we like. Merced: UUs of Merced, our satellite congregation.
