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.

    Rev. Pratima Dharm

    Louis-Ferdinand Celine wrote, “When you stay too long in the same place, things and people go to pot on you, they rot and start stinking for your special benefit.” Rev. Pratima Dharm will speak on the topic of ‘movement’ and how it correlates to growth and regeneration as essential elements to preventing stagnation and harmonizing with the natural rhythm of the world around us.

    Rev. Pratima Dharm

    Rev. Pratima Dharm will lead the Water Ceremony at Monte Vista on the 26th of August and speak on the relationship between water and light. This is traditionally celebrated in memory of the first Unitarian Universalist Water Communion worship service held in the 1980s at the beginning of the new church year. Members and friends are encouraged to bring to the service a small amount of water from a place that is special to them or from their summer travels and participate in the water ritual during service!
