We are a diverse community that seeks to transform lives through spiritual growth, social activism, and mutual trust and support.
Declaration of Conscience
At this extraordinary time in our nation’s history, we are called to affirm our profound commitment to the fundamental principles of justice, equity, and compassion, to truth and core values of American society.
In the face of looming threats to immigrants, Muslims, people of color, and the LBGTQ community and the rise of hate speech, harassment, and hate crimes, we affirm our belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
• any steps to undermine the right of every citizen to vote
• unjust governmental actions to deport, register, or discriminate against immigrants
• turning back advances in access to health care
• reproductive rights
• initiatives that address the threat of climate change
• a commitment to justice and compassion in human relations
We will translate our values into action and stand on the side of love with the most vulnerable.
We welcome and invite all to join in this commitment for justice. The time is now.
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Blair County is a small, but growing lay-led community with plans for a big future. We're a come-as-you-are congregation and we welcome anyone and everyone to join us.
We are dedicated to serving the campus and broader community as much as we possibly can. Although we're a small faith community, we truly believe that every individual effort adds into something greater.
We are grateful to meet at Penn State Altoona's beautiful Edith Davis Eve Chapel located across the reflecting pool from the Slep Student Center
Our congregation is small, but growing. We welcome people of all faith backgrounds, or no faith background at all! We also happily welcome people of all races, colors, creeds, sexual and gender orientations. Find out what our community is all about.
