Welcome to MN Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (MVUUF)
Visitors and guests are welcome each and every Sunday at Minnesota Valley Unitarian Universalist Church (MVUUF), where we offer one worship service at 10:30am with concurrent Religious Education for children and youth ages pre-K through 12th grade. There is also a nursery for families with young children.
When you arrive, please feel free to park in the spots reserved for visitors. Our building is handicap accessible; we have an elevator for individuals who find the stairs difficult to navigate and our restrooms are large enough for wheelchairs. Stop at the visitor’s table on your right as you enter where you will be greeted and given a packet of information. We ask you to fill out an information form so you can join our mailing and email list (optional). Each week our minister emails information about upcoming Sunday events, and the calendar of activities for the following week.
Visiting with Kids? We’re delighted!
On your first visit, you may choose to worship together as a family. Children and youth are welcome in our Sanctuary. Drop-in nursery care is available for little ones ages 6 months 4 years.
Feel free to attend a religious education class with your child or drop them off if they feel comfortable. Visit our Welcome Table in the lobby and one of our greeters will show you to the Social Hall where the children meet as a group before gathering in age-based small groups. Our brochure rack in the lobby also has a “Family Ministry brochure” with information about our ministry with Children, Youth and Families. Contact our Director of Family Ministries, Maria Bavier (firstname.lastname@example.org), for more information about our program.

- Lighting the flaming chalice, the symbol of our Unitarian Universalist tradition
- Readings from various sources, including the world’s great religious traditions, poetry, and literature
