 We are a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA)  

 uualogo2014Unlike many denominations, Unitarian Universalists are democratically-run congregations. Our national organization, the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, does not assign ministers or give directives to congregations. It serves as an invaluable resource to member congregations. UUAA is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) which represents the interests of more than one thousand Unitarian Universalist congregations, in North America. The UUA grew out of the 1961 consolidation of two religious denominations: the Universalists, organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, organized in 1825. For more information, visit the UUA web site.

 

 

Unitarian Universalist Association General Assembly

Every year in June, our congregation sends delegates to the UUA's General Assembly meeting to vote on issues, attend workshops and learn and worship together with UUs from all over the country.

GA 2016 was held in Columbus, Ohio with the theme Heart Land: Where Faiths Connect.

Over 75 UUAA members attended to see Rev. Gail Geisenhainer recognized as she retires from UU ministry and to take part in the Sunday service led by our own Dr. Glen Thomas Rideout along with River Road UUC's Rev Nancy Ladd McDonald. If you weren't able to go in person,you can view videos of major events and some of the workshops on this UUA web page. Follow this link to the video recording of the Sunday worship service.

Unitarian Universalist Service Committee

uusc_logo.gifThe Unitarian Universalist Service Committee is an independent human rights organization. UUSC works to advance economic justice, promote environmental justice, defend civil liberties, and protect the rights of vulnerable people in humanitarian crises.

Our work is grounded in UU principles and made possible by the activism and generous support of our 47,000 members. At First UUAA we have about 130 UUSC members. All the work we do in the United States and around the world relies on the support of memberships which begin at $10. For youth $20. For seniors $40. Regular and $75. For dual regular. UUSC is an Associate member of the UUA, but receives no funds from them. In addition to the annual " Guest at Your Table" fund raiser, UUSC makes special appeals in event of disasters like the recent Kenya Crisis, Darfur and the Gulf Coast Hurricane. For more information, visit the UUSC web site.
