Monte Vista Unitarian Universalist Congregation (formerly the First Unitarian Society of Pomona Valley) has been a beacon of liberal religious life in the Pomona Valley since 1888. We are located just east of Los Angeles.

We are a progressive community that encourages and supports individual spiritual quests while we work together for social justice.  We cherish the diversity of age, ability, belief, race, ethnicity, country of origin, language, economic status, education, political perspective, gender, sexual orientation or family structure.

We are Freethinker Friendly: we provide a welcoming community for people with atheist, agnostic, humanist , and other non-theistic world views.

We hope you will find a spiritual home with us.

    Our prophets call us not just to commemorate them but to continue their work. What do our heroes of the past--such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and the UUs who marched at Selma fifty years ago--call us to do in the face of racism today?

    One of my colleagues used to love to sing this David Bowie phrase when faced with transitions.  The line after it goes, “Turn and face the strange.”  It can be so hard to do, but that is life.  Interim ministry is about changes, otherwise known as transitions.  This Sunday, I’ll introduce myself to you a little, and share some anecdotes about the nature of change within ourselves and our organizations, as we kick off our new interim ministry.

    Speaker:  Rev. Susan Manker-Seale

    Creativity fascinates me.  In a way, it’s almost as if it’s the sacred way of being, as opposed to adhering to a dogma that denies the free breath of faith.  How do we balance the traditions we inherit and love with the desire for singing a new song, and not just singing one, but actually writing one?  How might we apply the creative spirit to worship, religious exploration, and social action?  How do we imbue our lives with sacred creativity?
