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.

    Rev. Susan Manker, Amy Randall, and the Religious Exploration Classes

    From Japan to Sweden, Africa to the United States, this play celebrates winter holidays from all over the world. Sung to the Twelve Days of Christmas, we will trace the common theme of light in the dark of winter.

    Rev. Susan Manker

    What does the discovery of Dark Matter have to do with a babe in a manger, everlasting light, or a bonfire in the night?  How does our creation of sacred space in this holiday season influence our inner space (Personal Truths) and outer space (Universe-al Truths)?  How do we immerse ourselves in a season that demands so much and almost requires the suspension of the rational for the traditional and the mystical?  Lily will lead the choir.  Mary McMahon is Worship Associate.

    Rev. Susan Manker, Lily Popova and Abraham Peraza

    Let’s celebrate this special night with carols sung in candlelight, children snuggled close and jingle bells.  Rev. Susan will tell a story she wrote called, “The Mysterious Cedar Christmas Box.”  There will be special music to lift your spirits, even if they don’t need it.  We’ll follow this hour-long, multi-generational service with refreshments, so BRING GOODIES if you can manage it (but don’t bother if you’re stressed - just gather everyone up and join us!)  Merry Christmas!

    Light is an almost universal symbol of what is good and hopeful and inspiring about our world and ourselves. It transcends the boundaries of cultures, religious beliefs, spiritual practices, historical time and intellectual reasoning. Both the Eastern Mystic and the Western Rationalist seek to become enlightened.  Throughout the world since ancient times rituals of hope and renewal have been celebrated around the time of the winter solstice when the hours of daylight began to increase after the period of maximum darkness. This year Christmas and Hanukkah (two very different celebrations of light) coincide on this day.  In this service we will explore some of our favorite symbolic meanings of light and seek inspiration to kindle and share the light within and keep it burning brightly.
