You and your congregation are invited to celebrate with other Unitarian Universalist congregations across the country this fall!

This is a chance for us to celebrate our UU community and to strengthen our connections to one another and to our larger organization. October 6, 2013 was our official “Join the Move!” Sunday, although you can hold this service any day that works for your congregation’s calendar. Thank you to the congregations who have held or are planning a special worship service and collection in honor of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), our new headquarters, and the bright future of Unitarian Universalism.

If your congregation participated and is not listed below, please leave a comment on this page, or send us an email at development@uua.org. And while you’re here, check out our growing list of worship resources or updates on the new building!

Congratulations to our Join the Move Sunday raffle winners! The UU Congregation of Oxford in Oxford, MS will receive a visit from UUA President the Rev. Peter Morales and the UU Fellowship of Newark in Newark, DE will receive a framed picture of the 24 Farnsworth UUA headquarters signed by UUA President the Rev. Peter Morales and the Leadership Council of the UUA.

Every congregation that participated in Join the Move Sunday is a member of the UUA’s 24 Farnsworth Society! Membership in the Society includes:

  • Giving & Generosity Monthly Newsletters detailing the work of the UUA and UU Congregations across the country to any interested congregants.
  • Recognition of your congregation during the groundbreaking of 24 Farnsworth St.
  • UUA 24 Farnsworth Society Ribbon at GA 2014.
