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.

MVUUC has a New Minister – the Rev. Pratima Dharm!

At the special Congregational Meeting after the Worship Service on June 24, the congregation voted 79-3 to call Rev. Pratima Dharm to be our full-time, settled minister.  She has accepted!

The congregation welcomed her return to the sanctuary for the announcement with a verse of “Come Sing a Song with US” followed by a chorus of “Happy Birthday”, since Sunday was Rev. Dharm’s birthday. Rev. Dharm then spoke briefly about her love and hopes for the congregation followed by a ritual of blessing.

Rev. Dharm will be starting her ministry at MVUUC on August 15, 2018.

    LET THERE BE LIGHT!

    Worship Associates:  Catherine Rowlee, Dick Olson

    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.
