welcome to the UU of SCV
Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist congregation in Santa Clarita Valley — a vibrant, inclusive, spiritual fellowship.
As Unitarian Universalists (UU’s), we share important values and principles, but in matters of faith, we encourage members to think for themselves. We are “religious liberals,” drawing upon the teachings of many of the world’s religions, as well as philosophy and science. Together we share our joys and sorrows, our quest for spiritual insight, our commitment to greater justice and our efforts to grow in wisdom, generosity and compassion.
This congregation was established in the year 2000 to provide a tolerant, free-thinking place of worship in Santa Clarita Valley, with a focus on personal growth and community transformation.
UU’s are relatively “new” in town, and our vision is forward-looking. Yet we’re part of a much larger movement with deep historical roots dating back to early Christianity.
While you’ll get a sense of who we are by viewing some of these pages, the best way to fully experience UU is on a Sunday morning at our visitor-friendly worship service, complete with inspirational sermon, readings and hymns. On other days, we enjoy a wide variety of learning activities, fellowship, compassionate service and fun. You’re welcome to participate in those activities, too!
Come join us. We think you’ll find this a refreshingly different kind of religion. We can’t wait to meet you!
who are unitarian universalists?
That's a great question. One might more easily ask: "Who are not Unitarian Universalists?
Here are a couple quick links to give you a better idea:Voices of a Liberal Faith

This month’s congregational theme is “truth”. As such, it’s time to do some truth-telling about this year’s pledge campaign for the 2013-2014 year budget. Ideally, that budget would fund the vision this community has for the future. At the Stewardship meeting I attended in March that vision was relayed as including: full-time ministry, a healthy budget for Leadership Development and adult religious education, as well as the ability to fund the Chalice Center after the grant money has been expended.
for new visitors
Many folks ask us on their first visit to our congregation: "Where have you been all my life?" They’re filled with wonder at a church that will help them discover and develop what they believe, rather than compelling them to accept fixed doctrine.
Please join us for Sunday Services. We know you’ll feel welcome and comfortable from the moment you set foot in our door. We have a casual style... some of us even wear blue jeans or shorts to church.
