SAVE THE DATE: Leaders Retreat for Women - September 28-29, 2018.

This retreat is for leaders at UUCM that identify as women, age 18 and above. This retreat will seek to secure a brave space: where we will consider our experiences in leadership at UUCM and in other areas of our lives, listen and reflect upon the experiences of others, and consider ways to de-center the patriarchy that challenges us at UUCM and beyond. Intersectional awareness will be key to our exploration. It will not be ignored. Our exceptional facilitator is the Rev. Dr. Cari Jackson. For more information and to register click here.

Welcome to the U!

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Montclair, now in its 118th year, enjoys a rich history of spiritual exploration and social justice activism. For us, it's difficult to tell those elements apart because we find them to be two aspects of the same human, religious impulse. It's much like breathing in and breathing out.

Here members are not told what to believe, but we don't simply ask, "What do you believe?" We also ask, "What difference does your belief make - in your life and in the world?" We feel that religion is about life, about finding and making meaning in it, and we regularly discover that we do this best in community.
