Here’s more on how we follow our Spiritual Path
At our Sunday Services—which are currently via our YouTube channel during Covid—we collaborate with the three other Southern Arizona UU congregations. We use our traditional sources and heritage as well as newer expressions of our faith tradition for inspiration. Our services are built around congregational and choral singing, a reflection or homily (which others might refer to as a sermon), and other elements that are familiar to those who have attended any Protestant church. No two Sundays are ever the same, and some are quite innovative. We aim to enable connection with spirit, be it in our service or during your week. Our hope is that your life is uplifted and your energy renewed each week.
The music program at MVUU offers an eclectic infusion of music to supplement and inspire the MVUU congregants. Music is drawn from a variety of sources including sacred and secular, classical and contemporary, familiar and unexpected. Choir rehearsal is held on Thursdays. Contact our Director of Music to learn more about our choir and special programs or to offer your musical talent.
Our Youth Religious Exploration program is intentionally welcoming and inclusive of all children and youth. Our liberal religious theology teaches us to boldly live into our values by creating a welcoming community where every person is valued. We come from different backgrounds and may hold different beliefs, but this theology of relationship and connection unites us.
Our program teaches Unitarian Universalist values, theology, and history. We create learning environments to help newcomers and experienced participants establish connection and a sense of belonging in the congregation, while building Unitarian Universalist faith identity. We offer weekly Sunday programming for all children and youth. We connect with other UU congregations and programs to offer ongoing opportunities for our middle and high school youth. Religious Exploration allows us to deepen our understanding of our common faith and our individual faith journeys.
Small Group Gatherings
Small group gatherings vary in topic, number of meetings, people who attend. They all provide settings for members and friends to share deeply and get to know one another better.
Some are similar to covenant or chalice groups in other UU congregations, some are centered on a special growth topic, such as racial justice, some are explorations of sacred poetry. All
- Foster deeper relationships with others
- Offer a variety of topics for discussion
- Honor members’ sharing from their heart
