We are people of all ages, people of many backgrounds, and people of many beliefs. We welcome Atheist, Agnostic, Buddhist, Christian, Earth-Centered, Hindu, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim, or those who identify with other philosophical or religious traditions. Unitarian Universalism affirms and promotes seven Principles, grounded in the humanistic teachings of the world’s religions.
Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Our congregations are places where people gather to nurture their spirits and put their faith into action by helping to make our communities—and the world—a better place. We create spirituality and community beyond boundaries, working for more justice and more love in our own lives and in the world.
Each of us has worth and dignity, and that worth includes our gender and our sexuality. As Unitarian Universalists (UUs), we not only open our doors to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, we value diversity of sexuality and gender and see it as a spiritual gift. We create inclusive religious communities and work for LGBTQIA justice and equity as a core part of who we are. All of who you are is sacred. All of who you are is welcome.
Sunday Services start at 10:30am, unless otherwise noted.
Summer Schedule in effect. During the Summer, we will be holding very limited Sunday Services. Watch this space for updates as the Summer progresses.

— Presented by UUGSB’s Damon Governa, MDiv. Our religion calls us to engage with such important matters as social ills and our own spiritual development, bringing the risk of our becoming overly-serious. Join us for a look at the profound spiritual benefit of irreverence and laughter.
