Welcome

The Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (MVUUF) is affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association of North America and is an ethical and liberal religious community dedicated to promoting the ongoing search for truth and to affirming the inherent worth of the individual.

Our Fellowship Mission is to help each person live, laugh, love and seek the truth; to be a place of celebration, comfort, love, and learning for all ages; to serve our community in the spirit of justice and democracy; and to respect all religious paths.

Services begin at every Sunday at 10:30 am, with a social hour afterwords. Some services are presented by our part-time minister, Elizabeth Greene, on the first Sunday of every month. Please note that as of April 5, 2015 we are meeting in a new location, 588 Addison Avenue West. To find directions to the fellowship, click here.

Sunday, January 22, 2017: “Your Huddled Masses”

Presented by: Rev. Elizabeth Greene

EGreeneThe Statue of Liberty stands with her welcoming torch, inviting all who yearn for freedom to enter the golden door. And yet, the question of who is welcomed and who is not seems to be a complicated one. Do religious people have a special duty to welcome “the other”? What constitutes an open heart?

Please Note: This Sunday, January 22nd, we will have our “New Member Ceremony.” It is this ceremony, we will welcome our new members to our Fellowship. Following our service we will have a “Potluck Meal.” Please bring a food item to share. If you are unable, that’s okay your presence is all we need.

Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.

Sunday, January 15, 2017: “The Life that is Waiting for Us”

Presented by: Julie Merrick

campbell-youngersmaller1American mythologist, Joseph Campbell, explored the possibilities of consciousness and radiant living. He believed that we should follow our bliss, diving into and not away from the sorrows of the world.

As we give his teachings consideration, we learn to be present and embrace the rapture of being alive and so open ourselves to the life that is waiting for us.

Due to our service being cancelled this past Sunday due to bad weather we will have our “Second Sunday” special collection to benefit a local charity, The American Burmese Friendship Organization, Inc. They provide needed services to the local Burmese Refugees in our community.

Sunday, January 1, 2017: “Starting Over?”

Presented by: Chad Minteer

With the New Year, we have an opportunity to reflect, to renew commitments, and to consider the year ahead. Sometimes this can be daunting, and sometimes we can set unrealistic expectations for ourselves. Do we really have to start over? Or can we start from right where we are?

Join us as we consider helpful perspectives for beginning the new year in hope, in love, in community.
