HVUUC Church

Mission Statement

The mission of Holston Valley Unitarian
Universalist Church is to promote
spiritual growth, religious
freedom, and ethical action.

Slide background

Holston Valley UU is a congregation that gathers in the spirit of 16th century Unitarian minister, Frances David, who wrote: “We need not think alike to love alike.” We embrace diversity within the congregation’s membership and in theology. We are committed to the spiritual development and well being of our young people, as well as our adults. We provide a religious education program based on experiential learning, ethical living, and drawing from all of the world's religions as sources of wisdom. We are committed to being a vital and growing progressive congregation within our larger community.

We hope you will visit our church. Our worship services are at 11:00am; children’s and adult's religious education classes are both before the service at 9:30am. I am in the pulpit three Sunday’s a month, and other Sundays guest speakers or members of the congregation lead the service, yielding diversity in the worship services.

A Man For His Times: A. Powell Davies
Rev. Luck

A. Powell Davies was the minister of All Souls Church, Unitarian in Washington, D.C. from 1943 to his death in 1957. He was very influential at the time with members of Congress often attending worship. Davies stood up to Eugene Mc Carthy and his witch hunt for communists and its blacklist. Davies had a national radio show which was very popular among the religious and the politically minded. Such a Unitarian ministry seems unimaginable, and I want to add to our concept of possibilities  what contemporary Unitarian Universalist ministry can be. I think we will all be inspired.
