Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Monmouth County! I hope you will visit our congregation soon. On Sunday mornings we are a busy and enriching place to be for all ages. Our worship service at 10:30am is the centerpiece of our community life and we welcome all to it. For Unitarian Universalists worship is a celebration and reflection on matters of worth. In leading worship I hope to transform hearts and minds with love. Worship service is a place for us to let go, to be held and to be challenged. Participants are asked to bring an open mind and open heart to it. With music, singing, honest words, prayer and meditation we come to a place of deeper understanding of our humanity and we invite in the holy.
UUCMC has a vibrant religious education program for all ages that includes children and youth programs at 10:30. Sundays begin with common worship in our beautiful sanctuary called the Earth Room, followed by age appropriate groups for children and youth. For Adult Religious Education we offer a weekly Sunday Morning Dialogue Forum at 9am and a full range of classes and small groups throughout the week. You are welcome to join any of these ongoing programs.
Unitarian Universalism is a non-creedal religion that encourages each person to articulate their own faith and to listen deeply to what calls them to life. We ask only that you believe what you have to believe based on your own experience, that you respect the authenticity of others beliefs and that we can indeed come together in love. As early Unitarian Francis David (1510-1579) said "We need not think alike to love alike." Unitarian Universalism is a liberating faith founded over 400 years ago in the radical reformation. We have grown out of Christianity to embrace a much broader set of religious wisdom sources that include our Jewish and Christian roots, the world's religions and our own experience of transcendent mystery and wonder.
Please do come and find out if you are a Unitarian Universalist too!
Yours in faith,
