What Guides the Fellowship

Members and friends engage in a number of activities to fulfill the mission and vision of UUFA. Through worship, learning, having fun, and serving our Fellowship and local communities, we deepen our understanding of life and our place in the world. We aspire to live up to our high ideals and to live out our values each and every day. Even so, we know we may fail. We seek forgiveness and restoration, and begin again.
