On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the congregation, I would like to welcome you to Davies Memorial Unitarian Universalist Church (DMUUC). Our members and friends join us from many religious and secular traditions. Davies offers a safe and accessible place to explore and develop our personal truths while we act as a committed community.
Davies has been recognized by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) for being intentionally and successfully focused on diversity, not limited to religious beliefs alone, but as a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, and multi-generational congregation. We are proud to be a certified “Welcoming Congregation.” This certification by the UUA is given to congregations that received instruction and voted to be open and affirming to all those in our community who are Gay, Bisexual, Lesbian, or Transgendered (GBLT).
At present we are working with our interim minister, David Owen O’Quill to more clearly define our future direction. We are sincerely looking for people who can bring new ideas to us and who want a chance to affect the church and broader community.
We believe that the Unitarian Universalist approach to religious education for children encourages open mindedness and curiosity about the world. We use a variety of curricula developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association, and we welcome children and youth. We want to work with your family to grow our religious education program for children and adults.
As a church, Davies supports a number of social programs in the community such as Christmas in April, the The Oxon Hill Food Pantry, and Beacon House plus other local and world charities that the congregation chooses to support. Individual members are involved in a variety of other community activities. We want to increase our presence in the community with more church-sponsored activities as we live our faith through deeds, not creeds.
We wish to welcome you into this liberal religious home and hope that you will find meaning here. Our worship service currently begins at 10:30 am. Whether you are new to Unitarian Universalism or have experience with other UU churches, please feel free to visit frequently and to become involved in our programs and activities. Ask whatever questions are on your mind! While you are here, join us for coffee and conversation in the lounge following the service. We look forward to meeting you.
