The mission of Holston Valley Unitarian Universalist Church is to promote spiritual growth, religious freedom, and ethical action.
We work together as a church to transform ourselves, our community, and our world by sharing love, pursuing justice, and seeking wonder.
We embrace diversity within the congregation’s membership and in theology. We are committed to being a vital and growing progressive congregation within our larger community.
We begin the summer with a special service put on by the Music Committee. Instead of giving a sermon, we aim to show how music can influence us in so many different ways. It can reflect our sorrow or joy, it can inspire us to rally together, or help us show our love and mend our wounds. Please join us for a very uplifting service.
This is about a crisis of faith we have in our own questions, reflections, and voices. It is about our unwillingness to reconsider ancient small-scale answers to large-scale mysteries; our reluctance to discover the sacred for ourselves. The new window of science is there to look through. For the believer, it is the challenge of deciding what to continue to hold onto and what to let go. For the doubter, it is the challenge of going beyond what doesn’t believe to beliefs one can hold fast and live by.
