Welcome to Everyone
We are affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations. We are an ethical, liberal religious community dedicated to promoting the ongoing search for truth and affirming the inherent worth of the individual. We draw on multiple religious sources including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, prophetic men and women, humanism, and world religious and earth-centered traditions. We are a religious community that encourages spiritual growth in an atmosphere of warmth, freedom of belief and open dialogue.
Please explore our web site for information about us and Universal Unitarians and check back often as we are a very active group!

Feb 1-7 Interfaith Harmony Week - Please join the Charter for a special weeklong series of presentations during World Interfaith Harmony Week, inspired with the work of Muslim-Christian dialog. We are exploring the need for developing compassion to understand and benefit from a world that is marked by diversity and pluralism—in life forms, in cultural patterns, in faith pathways, in physical characteristics like skin color and body shapes.
Are you seeking a religious community where everyone is treated with respect and dignity? A church where you aren’t told what to believe but are encouraged to grow spiritually in an atmosphere of warmth, freedom of belief and open dialogue. The Unitarian Society of Menomonie is a community seeking Spiritual Growth and Understanding, Love, and Social Justice. Unitarian Universalists members hold many different beliefs, but worship as one community.

Action and Service
Global Warming- First Sunday of Each Month. We explore and act to preserve our precious world.
Socrates Cafe/Social Justice- 3rd Sunday of each month we meet at the Golden Leaf Cafe for an open ended discussion on social justice, and Critical examination of issues confronting our selves, community and the world.
We believe that faith is a journey we take together. We support one another as individuals, families, and communities in an ongoing search for truth and meaning. We strive to guide one another—all ages among us—in religious questioning, personal change, and discovering ways to better live in faith. We believe it is important to educate ourselves and our children in a non-dogmatic approach to faith, God, and the man's religious beliefs.
