Both Campuses

Creating whole human beings; healing lives that heal the world.

The best and quickest way to get to know our community is by attending a Sunday morning service. For most, the dress could be called business casual. Some wear ties or dresses, others shorts and flip-flops. Children are welcomed and join us in worship each Sunday before meeting their religious education leaders for special classes. From Sunday to Sunday, the theme of the service can vary greatly. Please come join us.

Meditation and Buddhist Sangha

Meditation has become the cornerstone of the faith of many Unitarian-Universalists, whether their belief is agnostic, theist, or atheist, and whether their orientation is Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, Islamic, or other. Many have found that their own personal mediation experience has been enhanced by the presence and support of others in group mediation. The Meditation/Buddhist Sangha meets regularly at the Hillcrest and South Bay campuses.

Home Connections

The Home Connections publication is a way for us to personally connect with the monthly worship themes. They contain chalice lightings that may be used at home, stories and reflection questions for individuals of all ages, possible ways to engage with the theme, and additional resources.
