Haunted Barn & Halloween Party

Thank you to everyone who came to the Annual Haunted Barn & Halloween Party!IMG_6662

Over 100 people enjoyed a community dinner, crafts, games and a spooky maze.

This Fellowship event raised over $500 for our programs and community outreach.

Exploring justice, equity & compassion

principle_2Several Worship Services this year will focus on the
Second Principle of the
Unitarian Universalist Association – “Justice, equity and compassion in human relations.”

This principle calls on us to act collectively as a community and as a culture.

Through stories, readings, sermons and songs we will explore how we can live up to this principle and help create a more just world. Different speakers will share different perspectives and challenge us to act. Are we ready?


Banner on the barn

Have you seen the new banner? MMUUF is “Standing on the side of love.”

Unitarian Universalists affirm unconditional, universal love as a foundation and grounding for our actions in the world. We strive to be of service to our communities and advocate for change on local, state, national, and international levels.

Through the Standing on the Side of Love campaign UU congregations amplify the voices of the oppressed through online media; we show up in partnership at justice events across the country; we lobby national leaders on immigration reform, racial justice, equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people, religious freedom, and more; and above all we work to make love real in the world.

Over eighty percent of Unitarian Universalist congregations, and many more individual UUs and others who care about justice, have become a part of Standing on the Side of Love.

Mahatma Gandhi did it. Mother Theresa did it. Martin Luther King, Jr., did it.

We do it.

Standing on the side of love


Covenant adopted

At the annual meeting on June 4, 2017, MMUUF adopted a covenant. Thank you to the Steering Committee for giving us guidance and latitude in the right measures, to Karen Bellavance-Grace from the UUA New England region for guiding us through the process, and to committee chairs for sharing thoughts during Covenant Minutes during spring Services. We look forward to having this covenant guide us in good times and bad, and also provide welcoming clarity for visitors.     -Kelly McCutcheon Adams
             Mount Mansfield Unitarian Universalist Covenant

We, the members and friends of Mount Mansfield Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, covenant together to create and sustain a spiritual community that welcomes all. We create this fellowship as a place to actively explore big questions in community, to nurture our spiritual curiosity, to deepen our faith, to support each other in times of trouble, and to celebrate together in times of joy. Guided by the Seven Principles of our Unitarian Universalist Association, we make these promises to each other…..    Read full text of Covenant here

MMUUF will celebrate Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 4pm

MMUUF will celebrate with readings and music around a theme of accepting and welcoming others into our holy days and spiritual traditions. Families welcome.

Celebrating the winter holidays, Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations express our commitment to our Sixth Principle: We covenant to affirm and promote the goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.

Unitarian Universalists celebrate Christmas as a time during winter’s low dark sky, to look to the miracle of light as a sign of rebirth and a source of hope. We celebrate the promise of new life and recommit ourselves to the protection of everyone’s right to his or her own radiant humanity.

Holiday Potluck-Dec. 11 Brunch

Join us for the annual Holiday Potluck, after the Sunday Service on Dec. 11th, at 10:30am. All are welcome! There will be delicious food to share, crafts for children (and adults!) and some singing of traditional holiday songs.

We look forward to breaking bread together before heading back into the bustling holiday swirl.
