our mission and our Covenant


Our Mission

Inspired by love, our mission is
to seek our true nature, connect openly and deeply,
and act for justice.


The above mission statement was adopted by democratic vote in 2014. The mission is short, but it challenges us to live authentically and honestly, to build a welcoming community, and to work hard to better this world. All with love at the center of our work.



Our Covenant


Unitarian Universalism is a covenantal, non-creedal religion-- a community that is committed to working and worshiping with each other in ways that foster our growth as individuals and as a community.  We journey together bound in the interdependent web of existence.

We, the members of the UU Congregation of the Hudson Valley, affirm and covenant to:

  • listen actively and respectfully

  • be accepting of all voices

  • seek full and equitable participation

  • use language of kindness

  • assume positive intent

  • approach conflict directly and work toward a mutually acceptable resolution through honest interaction and compromise

  • express gratitude for the efforts of others

  • honor each other's personal journeys


To create an atmosphere of trust and safety, we agree to call each other back into covenant when necessary and to forgive ourselves and others.

The above covenant was adopted by democratic vote in 2018.
