The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Waynesboro began in 1955 as a place where people can practice liberal religion in the Shenandoah Valley. Unitarian Universalism has roots in Jewish and Christian traditions, but it is a creedless faith. We believe that there is no single religious path, and each person has the right to pursue an individual quest for truth and meaning.

Please visit the UUFW Mission Survey to help us craft a new mission statement to guide our fellowship in the coming years. The following is the Vision Statement that was developed last spring and which was adopted by the Fellowship at the June annual meeting.

Vision Statement

We envision the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Waynesboro as a diverse and vibrant spiritual community. Rooted in the practice of loving-kindness we are moved to act with justice and generosity in our Fellowship and beyond.
