Our Mission

The mission of the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Shenandoah Valley, Inc. is to build a community based on and committed to self-development, compassion, open communication, and action.

Our Community is defined by how we interact with each other, both within the Congregation and with the larger society.

Self-development is enabled by meeting the spiritual, intellectual, and social awareness needs of the congregation.

We practice compassion by placing ourselves in the position of both other members of the congregation and of the larger society.

We practice open communication by speaking openly and with respect, civility, and compassion.

Action means we play active roles both within the congregation and wider community in fulfilling our self-development and compassion values.
