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.

    Presenters:  Freethinkers Forum

    The Freethinkers Forum will present a play entitled "Dedication To A Cause".  A panel of Albert Schweitzer, Josey Mengele, Carrie Nation, and Clara Barton will discuss their viewpoints led by an MVUUC moderator.  The play resembles an ancient Greek morality play with heroes and villains.

    Rev. Susan Manker-Seale and Jill Raiguel, Worship Associate

    This is the time of the Jewish New Year.  Part of the preparation is to ask forgiveness of one another and ourselves, and to let go of past hurts and angers (etc.).  In this way, we make space for new relationships and opportunities.  We will explore these ten High Holy Days of Turning, from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur, and hold our own ceremony of letting go, wherein we shall take steps to return to the home of our souls (per Carlebach’s beautiful song, “Return Again”).

    Guest Minister: The Rev. Dr. Tom Owen-Towle

    I want to talk about morality, religion, and politics during this tumultuous election year, so bear with me as I explore the core qualities of what makes America a good country. The Rev. Dr. Tom Owen-Towle has been a parish minister since 1967 and is the author of two dozen books on personal relationships and spiritual growth, several of which will be available following the service. Tom and his life-partner, The Rev. Dr. Carolyn Sheets Owen-Towle were co-ministers of First UU Church of San Diego from 1978-2002. Tom is a guitarist and parlor magician, who currently sings with seniors, mentors youth-at-risk, volunteers with San Diego’s homeless, and preaches throughout our PSWD. He considers it both a privilege and joy to be returning to our Monte Vista UU congregation.

    October 24 is UN Day, and this year’s UN Sunday theme is from our UU/United Nations Office’s 2016 Spring Seminar on “The Colors of Inequality:  Costs and Consequences.”  We’ll look at their report on global economic inequality and the consequences for living in health and peace on our planet.  Jeanine Ganzen-Little is chair of our Social Justice Coordinating Committee.
