Who We Are
We are Unitarian Universalists. Simply put, we offer a shared and guided path towards a better you and a better world. We are diverse in our faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good.
Most of the members of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rock Valley were not born into the UU faith. We came from a variety of faith traditions, including Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Jewish, and from no religious background. We are people who believe in God, people who don’t, and people who let the mystery be. One of our Principles is to support “the free and responsible search for truth and meaning.”
Members come from a number of communities in the Illinois-Wisconsin state-line area including Rockton, Roscoe, Rock City, South Beloit, Rockford, Loves Park, Beloit and Janesville.
Ours is an increasingly diverse community: young and old, gay and straight, singles, couples and families, people of different ethnicities and national origins, believers of different faiths, people of differing abilities.
You will meet teachers, school bus drivers, lawyers, farmers, homemakers, computer specialists, retired people, nature experts, engineers, repair persons, college professors, poets, students, and more.
