About us

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Hudson Valley has provided a safe place for religious exploration for more than half a century. We are proud of our living, liberal religion, of the growth opportunities we offer all who enter our church, and of the welcome we strive to provide to all people.

We welcome you here on the Web with the words we use every Sunday in our Sanctuary:
Whether you have been with us a decade or this is your first time visiting, we welcome you.
Whatever the faith and traditions of your past, we welcome you.
Whatever your theological stance, we welcome you.
Whoever you are and whomever you love, we welcome you.
Whatever your heritage, we welcome you.

What is Unitarian Universalism?

Unitarian Universalism is a liberal, living religion that believes that each of us is on a journey of uncovering and discovering who we are and what we believe. 
​As a result, our religion is open to all who seek.
We believe that the journey of our lives is best undertaken in community, and so we are committed to partnering each other along that journey of growth with openness, love, and compassion.
We believe that together we can make meaning of our own lives and change this world for the better.

About the UUA

In 1961, the American Unitarian Association and the Universalist Church of America consolidated to form one entity, The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). 1,041 congregations are members of the UUA. Each one is self-governing, but they come together at the association level in order to make possible services and opportunities individual congregations would be unable to offer.
