Minister's Welcome

Dear Visitor,

Welcome. We at UUFD invite you to join with us in an exploration of meaning, faith identity, service, community, and spirituality. My own journey to Unitarian Universalism has brought me great joy and a deeper sense of connection with the Mystery that touches our hearts and lives.   

There are many ways to learn about us. You can explore our website and Facebook page. You can receive our newsletter,The Pathfinder, in hard copy or online. You can also receive our weekly e-news bulletin by completing the pink visitor’s sheet on a Sunday morning at a service, or click here to request our e-news. You can also send your email address to our Office Manager. To explore Unitarian Universalism on a national and international scale, you can click here. You can also visit the MidAmerica Region of Unitarian Unversalism website to see activities, webinars, and events offered by our Regional Office that supports our local congregations.  

We know that a congregational community extends beyond our on-line connections. The personal touch matters. Small groups, classes and events offered at UUFD, choir (if you sing!) and our circle dinners, are all perfect opportunities to make new friends and to get to know better those you have already met. If you have questions or comments to share with us, please feel free to contact me, our Office Manager, Director of Religious Education, Music Director, or a member of the Board of Trustees if you have questions or comments about UUFD. As a liberal religious community, we strive to live by our mission statement: 

Together as a religious community we put our liberal faith in action--

striving to nurture our families and our spiritual lives,

protect the Earth, eliminate poverty,

and stop oppression--

while offering love and hope for all.

As Unitarian Universalists, we support an atmosphere that encourages free critical thinking and conversation among a diverse group of people who put their faith in action. Our ministry requires our commitment to listen and learn from one another. 

We hope you will find our congregational community to be a place where you can be who you are without judgment or prejudice. Come visit us. Get to know us through our music, our worship, our pathways and deepening classes, our social justice work together, and through the fun we have in community. 

Sincerely,

Rev. Linda Slabon
