We are a community of individuals with warm hearts and open minds committed to a peaceful, just and sustainable world for all people everywhere. Due to the large rural area we serve here in the foothills, we meet in two communities. Finding Us While our main group meets in Sonora we have sponsored a smaller satellite group in Douglas Flat, in Calaveras County. So no matter which community you live near, you can travel to our services and events in either county.
Locations Page will tell you more.
Our Mission Is To:
- Provide a sanctuary for individual beliefs,
- Encourage spiritual and ethical growth,
- Create respect for the web of life,
- Promote justice and peace.
Who We Are:
We are a community of conscience open to all people of goodwill. We come from all political, social and religious backgrounds. We encompass people from Tuolumne and Calaveras counties and meet in these two locations.
Why We Are:
Isolated players are not an orchestra, no matter how excellent they are as soloists. We generate a community greater than the sum of its parts: trustworthy friends, understanding listeners and thoughtful teammates. We share meanings developed in our individual lives and we stand together in times of sorrow, joy and challenge. We encourage each other to share their spiritual journey or search. UUs have no dogma, and no creed. Instead we have 7 Principles http://www.uua.org/beliefs/principles/index.shtml that for centuries has formed our foundation of beliefs on how we as individuals fit into this world.
Where & When We Meet:
The Sierra Nevada foothills is a vast, sparsely populated rural area. Our Sonora group meets on the first and third Sunday of every month, while our Douglas Flat (Calaveras County) group meets on the second and fourth Sunday.
Our Calendar has specific times for our meetings.
