Come the Way You Are
We encourage our neighbors to discover this unique congregation. UUFVB offers itself as a haven for people who want affirmation from a welcoming crowd of concerned, compassionate friends — and that is exactly what we offer.
“Right now, the situations in Washington and elsewhere around the world are troubling for so many people,” observes our minister, Scott Alexander. “They never imagined that polarizing politics could undermine society’s core standards of decency and challenge our respect for diversity, gender, and basic human rights.
“Nowadays, too many people feel estranged from old friends and institutions that once provided them comfort and support,” adds Alexander. “They are unaware that UUFVB understands their situation and delivers a positive, refreshing alternative.”
We have distributed thousands of invitations throughout the community telling people to “come prepared to think freely, speak freely, and ask questions in a place where others ask questions, too.” We’ve promised “a community of open-minded friends who share your hopes for tomorrow — and are doing something about it.” Finally, we’ve affirmed that “you’re welcome just the way you are.”
Unitarian Universalism embraces diversity and nurtures spirituality without requiring adherence to a particular doctrine or set of arbitrary, often illogical, rules. By inviting people to “bring their minds,” UUFVB distinguishes itself as a place for thoughtful sharing of opinions and cooperative efforts to effect positive changes.
Neighbors from the Treasure Coast and beyond are invited to attend UUFVB’s Welcoming Sunday on March 4, 2018. The worship service begins at 10:00 a.m. and is immediately followed by a social gathering in the Fellowship Hall. For those unable to attend this special event, weekly meetings are held every Sunday and are always open to the public. The fellowship meets at 1590 27th Avenue in Vero Beach, on the southeast corner of 27th Avenue and 16th Street.
