The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Waynesboro is a growing congregation of about 160 adult members and 40 children. Most of our members live in the Waynesboro/Staunton/Augusta County area. We are a diverse group representing different age groups, ethnic and religious backgrounds, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation.
Singles, couples, and families alike have found a place where they can share common values and interests and find lifelong friendships. As a congregation, we are united by our appreciation of each individual’s uniqueness and a common quest for spiritual wisdom.
In 2004, UUFW earned its designation as a Welcoming Congregation from the Unitarian Universalist Association. It means the congregation has undertaken to become more inclusive of bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender people and to celebrate the lives of all people regardless of their sexual orientation. As a Welcoming Congregation, we accept and support same-sex couples and offer congregational and ministerial assistance for union services and other celebrations of family definitions. And we commit ourselves to replacing personal prejudice with knowledge in the belief that it will lead to individual spiritual growth and congregational unity.
